Additional Information: John Field's Lifelong Learning and the New Educational Order (2000) represents a substantial contribution to the literature on lifelong learning. Whilst Field brings a wealth of policy-related and sociological learning to his work, this article focuses on a number of philosophical questions arising from the study. It is suggested that Field's argument raises familiar questions about notions of 'learning', 'reflexivity', 'personal autonomy' and the conditions for knowledge. In each case, a number of considerations present themselves which have implications for our understanding of lifelong learning: its nature, prevalence and significance.
