Sandlin critiques andragogy's prominence from three contrasting adult education trends: Africentric, feminist, and critical. Stanton validates congruence between andragogy and self-directed learning through an almost perfect ‘bell-shaped' facilitator measurement. Reischmann insists andragogy is the science of lifelong/life-wide learning and adult education as the practice of education/learning of adults. Biao's 25-year Nigerian study supports only andragogically prepared facilitators be allowed to teach andragogy. Savicevic observed that since his initial 1966 USA visit to his 2006 visit, there had not been one single serious study in adult education/learning that did not refer to andragogy as a conception. Bellamio translated Knowles' 1990 edition of The Adult Learner into Italian. This action helped Italian HRD professionals take responsibility for improving their sphere of influence within their corporations. Savicevic's perceives on Knowles' contribution in andragogy will place him meritoriously in the development of this scientific discipline. This chapter explores all of this.
