Book Description

Originally published in 1988, this book examines the concept of culture and the transmission of cultural values in relations to adult education. It emphasizes the importance of perceiving culture as a social construct which is part of a specific value system and questions how cultural development is promoted or hindered by adult education. It also describes a number of case studies from popular courses such as painting and pottery.
