This book introduces readers to systems of knowing and learning different from our familiar Western educational tradition.

As with other areas of education, the knowledge base that has developed around adult learning and education has been firmly lodged in Western values and culture.

But we need only look beyond our borders as well as to our own indigenous Native Americans to find major systems of thought and beliefs embedded in entirely different cultural values.

Chapters on Native American Indigenous Knowledge, Confucianism, Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism, Maori, Latin American Perspectives and African Indigenous Knowledge will acquaint readers with alternative understandings of learning, leading, it is hoped, to a more holistic understanding of adult learning.
