Antikainen, Ari; Kauppila, Juha
International Journal of Lifelong Education, v21 n3 p209-19 May-Jun 2002
Analysis of life stories of Finnish adults identified three cohorts with distinct life/education experiences (born pre-1935, 1936-55, post-1955). Core experiences were summarized as narratives of national culture and economic structural change. Three future scenarios for adult education were developed: formal rationality and bureaucracy, material rationalization and communality, and an open future. (Contains 26 references.) (SK)
