Description

This work provides insights into the nature of the emancipatory process of transformative learning which involves intuitive and reflective thought, validating rational discourse in a community of knowers and social action. It helps to demystify consciousness-raising as the process of knowing central to transformative learning. It differentiates elements in the process by which critical self-reflection is elicited and the key moments occur in dialectical knowing and reflective action. Kathleen Loughlin has provided us with a study of how and why transformative learning, as personal development within a community of knowers, effects social commitment and results in decisive social action by women in communications, politics, religion and education. Anyone interested in adult learning, the women's movement or emancipatory education should find this book of interest.
