Abstract:

This book examines the kind of learning that brings about significant personal change (transformational learning), and its overall theme is that individuals can be agents in their own formation by understanding and acting on the circumstances and forces that surround and shape them. Education beyond schooling has a long history of interest in the development and transformation of the self. A range of programs exist, from those which aim to promote self-development as an end in itself, to those programs in which changes to the self are seen as being a necessary component of broader organizatio.
