Unmasking Power: Foucault and Adult Learning.
Brookfield, Stephen
Canadian Journal for the Study of Adult Education, v15 n1 p1-23 May 2001
Elaborates on Foucault's analysis of how sovereign power has been replaced by disciplinary power exercised by people on themselves and others. Urges adult educators to be aware of power, especially in the apparently beneficent participatory practices they intend to be empowering for learners. (Contains 20 references.) (SK)
