Beyond Individualisation: Human Strivings for Control of Their Lives

  • Karen Evans
Part of the Lifelong Learning Book Series book series (LLLB, volume 13)

Throughout this volume, personal accounts offered by different social actors have shown how past habits and routines are brought into the present and how future possibilities are envisaged, all within the contingencies of the present moment as events unfold day by day in people’s lives. Personal accounts show how people’s priorities, pre-occupations and beliefs play out in the shifting social landscapes of real life.
