"…a substantially revised edition that reflects changes in philosophical orientations and thinking in the past quarter century…Elias and Merriam also discuss why philosophical orientation matters--it is the distinguishing characteristic of a professional educator who knows not only what to do but why--and they provide guidance on taking a philosophical stance."--Journal of Continuing Higher Education, Spring 2005

"What stance should adult educators adopt as their personal philosophy of adult education? Urging us to reflect critically upon this question was their reason for writing the first edition of this text and remains their reason for putting enormous energy into updating and expanding each subsequent edition. In the end, the answer depends on the individual practitioner, but this quest remains an excellent reason for reading and reflecting on this extremely thought-provoking book." — Faye Wiesenberg, Canadian Journal of University Continuing Education, Fall 2005

"This volume belongs on the bookshelf, and demands to be read by, every educator of adults who is serious about understanding who we are as adult educators and why we do what we do the way that we do.." — Trenton Ferro, PAACE Journal of Lifelong Learning, Vol. 15, 2006

"An essential book for anyone working in adult education…a must read for any newcomers to the field and for professionals who care about education and society from a historical and philosophical standpoint." — Simone Conceicao, Adult Education Quarterly, May 2006

Perhaps the only lexicon of its kind that is available. Although in my regular practice/job, we are well versed in day to day terminologies, but there is always a new term that needs to be defined and this book comes real handy. Go for it
