Example text

This approach met with some success in the 1970s and beyond. Nevertheless, such a radical adult education perspective raises a number of important questions in relation to education for citizenship. In its focus on ‘really useful knowledge’, it appears to offer a more grounded, democratic and active approach than that of the liberal tradition, and it certainly addresses the problem of the ‘thoughtless action’ which can take place in community work. However, an attendant danger ADULT LEARNING FOR CITIZENSHIP 33 is that of imposing a very specific, exclusive and unreflexive definition of ‘really useful knowledge’.

For adults, therefore, it is only important for learning to be considered education if to be an ‘educated person’ is important to their identity, if it acts as a means of distinguishing themselves from others and of identifying themselves with other educated persons. One thing which emerges very clearly and very significantly from this is that consumption is a complex and multi-dimensional process which can be active and generative as well as passive and reproductive. Consequently, we would argue that it is no longer possible to understand contemporary adult learning without a conception of the part played by consumption and consumer culture.

A dominant influence on the formation of adult education, certainly in Englishspeaking countries, has been the liberal tradition. This has taken a number of forms and directions according to its national and cultural location (Taylor et al 1985; Duke 1992). Fieldhouse’s summary of its basic values provides a useful baseline from which to understand and appraise its approach to citizenship: The notion of ‘liberalism’ in English adult education implies a democratic, dialectical and non-utilitarian approach.
