Overview

In this update of the 1995 and 1980 editions, Elias (religious studies and education, Fordham U., New York) and Merriam (adult education, U. of Georgia, Athens) present the principles of seven theoretical approaches to adult education: liberal, progressive, behaviorist, humanist, radical/critical, analytic, and postmodern. The postmodern chapter is new. The one on the radical approach incorporates recent developments in radical education, feminist educational theory, phenomenology, and critical social theory. The authors stress flexibility in adopting such views for gaining insights into cultural and personal history and enhancing critical thinking. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
