Summary

Historical knowledge is valuable to the adult educator, student, practitioner, or researcher in three different ways. There is philosophical justification for knowing history. There is a cognitive dimension to its value. There is a pragmatic reason for knowing history. A philosophical justification is that knowledge of history contributes to one's liberal education, that is, the education of a free citizen. Cognitive dimensions of history include understanding contemporary adult education concerns and learning about the way understanding is developed. History has pragmatic value in helping the historically informed benefit from the broader human experience and understand trends. (YLB)
