Adult Education and Civil Society

It is important to understand that the idea of civil society has been defined and deployed in different ways at different times, depending on what kind of social and political struggles were being fought, and won or lost. The meaning of civil society is part of the particular arguments and struggles of particular times. Consequently, for example, contemporary interpretations in adult education range from (literally) conservative formulations such as Robert Putnam’s influential account of civil society as the source of social capital to Gramsci’s radical notion of civil society as a site of struggle for moral and ideological hegemony.
