Adult education : evolution and achievements in a developing field of study by John Marshall Peters( Book )

7 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 583 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a companion to "Adult Education: Outlines of an Emerging Field of University Study" (more commonly known as "the black book"), a classic work published in 1964. It explores the developments, accomplishments, and changes in the field since 1964 and charts new directions for research, theory, and practice in the study of adult education. A foreword (Houle), preface, and biographies of the authors appear first. An introductory chapter, "Growth and Challenges in the Study of Adult Education" (Jarvis), outlines the nature of adult education as a field of study and some of the challenges that lie before it. The six chapters in Part 1 address in broad terms who studies the field, how they study it, and some of the outcomes: "Changing Relationships between Theory and Practice" (Cervero); "How Research Produces Knowledge" (Merriam); "Evolution of a Formal Knowledge Base" (Long); "The Impact of Intellectual Leadership" (Griffith); "Disseminating and Using Adult Education Knowledge" (Brockett); and "Growth and Future of Graduate Programs" (Peters, Kreitlow). Part 2 contains six chapters, each of which considers the relation of selected disciplines to the study of adult education: "The Psychology of Adult Teaching and Learning" (Tennant); "Educational Leadership and Program Administration" (Knox); "a Critical Perspective on Sociology and Adult Education" (Griffin); "Philosophical Foundations" (Lawson); "Relationships with Political Science" (Thomas); and "Learning from the Discipline of History" (Stubblefield). Part 3 contains three chapters that deal with special issues and forces that help shape the academic study of adult education: "International Influences on the Development of Knowledge" (Cunningham); "Social, Professional, and Academic Issues" (Deshler); and "Advancing the Study of Adult Education: a Summary Perspective" (Peters). In an epilogue, Malcolm Knowles takes a fresh look at the future of adult education as a field of study and practice. Standards for graduate programs in adult education are appended, and name and subject indexes conclude the volume. (Ylb)

Towards a comprehensive theory of human learning : lifelong learning and the learning society by Peter Jarvis( Book )

23 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book, the first in a forthcoming series, concentrates on the processes of human learning and considers the fact that research into learning itself has hitherto been unsystematic and, for a while, mainly psychological. In the first section of this book the author argues that learning is existential, and so its study must be complex and interdisciplinary. A number of the existing theories of learning are then critically examined, in order to see how they can be reconciled with a more complex model."--Jacket

Adult education and the state : towards a politics of adult education by Peter Jarvis( Book )

17 editions published between 1993 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is intended as an introduction to the political theory of the education of adults. Chapter 1 examines the relationship between adult education (ae) and civil society over the past several hundred years. Discussed in Chapter 2 are major theoretical and ideological perspectives about the state and ae, affinities between ae and political ideology, and the relationship between ae and policy in the United Kingdom. Chapter 3 describes the relationship of state policy and justice to ae. The ways in which the structures and content of ae can be related to the bureaucratic state are explored in Chapter 4. Examined in Chapter 5 are the concept of democracy and various ways in which it may be related to adult learning and ae. Chapter 6 presents four case studies illustrating the thesis that ae may be regarded as a social or citizenship right that the state does not necessarily concede without a struggle. In Chapter 7, the idea of interests is examined and related to the more popular notion of educational needs. Chapters 8 and 9 focus respectively on the relationship between liberal ae and a civilized society, and the existence of utopian thought in radical ae. Each chapter includes a substantial reference list. (Mn)
