This landmark work pulls together seminal work and current thinking on adult learning in one volume, providing a comprehensive, up-to-date overview and synthesis of what we now know about adult learning. The book includes information about the context in which adult learning takes place, who the participants are, what they learn and why, the nature of the learning process itself, major theoretical developments, and much more. Drawing from a background of work in sociology, philosophy, and critical social theory as well as psychology and education, the authors construct an inclusive perspective on adult learning, guiding readers toward new ways of thinking about teaching, learning, and the broader social implications of adult education.
