Abstract

Any novice to the literature of lifelong learning cannot help but discern two threads that weave their way through the material. The first is what appears to be the inherent ambiguity of the term, and the second the focus on learning, however defined. In this chapter, I will address both of these aspects of the concept from an epistemological perspective, though not necessarily resolve them.
