"Enrolling Alone?" Lifelong Learning and Social Capital in England.
Preston, John
International Journal of Lifelong Education, v22 n3 p235-48 May-Jun 2003

For "atomists," learning resulted in paradoxically solitary engagement. "Networkers" were not formally engaged but formed networks through learning. "Altruists'" sense of efficacy was enhanced by learning. (SK)
