Is there any way out of the andragogy morass?
Source: This is an edited version of an article which appeared in Lifelong learning: An omnibus of practice and research, vol. II, no. 3, 1987, pp. 17-20. Andragogy continues to be an important, and quite often controversial, topic in adult education environs. True believers, including many practitioners, apply andragogical principles with fervour while critics challenge everything from andragogy's assumptions to its effectiveness. Indeed, adult education may be viewed as being trapped in an andragogy morass. One might ask if there is any way out of this dilemma.
