For Danish philosopher and pedagogue Nikolai Grundtvig (Lawson, 1994), education is a matter of social interaction leading to enlightenment, a coming to terms with the meaning of one’s own existence, rather than vocational training or formal instruction. And Jarvis (2008) sees in social interaction a tool against the individuation of the masses. In spite of these and other similar theoretical stances, few adult learning programs have targeted the adult’s relational growth issue.

Another French philosopher, Paul Ricoeur (1990/1996) reinforces many of Mounier’s ideas on personalism. His “hermeneutic of the self” builds upon an ethical structure with three components (self-esteem, concern for others, and just institutions) about which he says: The good life, expressed concretely in self-esteem and respect, cannot be separate from other people: Philia (friendship in Aristotelian terms) is a virtue that allows one to progress from the self to oneself through an understanding garnered from “otherness” and “reciprocity” that the other person is simply another like oneself.
