    Abstract

    Reviewing the contributions, four metaperspectives on HRD are proposed: language, community/ societal, system, and psychological. Each suggests a particular conception of HRD and some implications of each metaperspective for theory and practice are presented. Academics and practitioners are challenged to incorporate multiperspectival views into theory,method, and practice.
