The "Biographical Question" as a Challenge to Adult Education.
Alheit, Peter
International Review of Education/Internationale Zeitschrift fuer Erziehungswissenschaft/Revue Internationale de l'Education, v40 n3-5 p283-98 1994
Argues that the use of biography in adult education is not a therapeutic process from learning to healing, but has the capacity to change in response to both the individual and the educational environment. Suggests that biographical approaches give learners control over material in a way that conventional education does not. (61 citations) (MAB)
