- Publisher's Summary
- This work examines and decodes African ways of thinking and learning and beliefs and value systems, while faulting the ambivalence that has attended the study of the subject in the past. It uses pedagogical, historical, and sociological thinking, and postmodern, postcolonial, and feminist theoretical approaches to interrogate ways to analyze lifelong learning in Africa.
