AnnotationWhile education can be a lifelong process, it is useful to consider its provision and its effects in the second half of life, from the age of 50 onwards. The author concentrates on education as a systematic process involving teaching as an aid to that learning signified by the acquisition of knowledge and skill. Those reaching age 50 in the 1980s are likely to have achieved more fulfilment in the second half of their lives in ways often absent from the first, with opportunities for pre-retirement preparation and increased take-up of adult education. Education will help to create a civilised setting for the second half of life. (OFFPRINT) (RH).
