Surname 1 Name Tutor Course Date Similarities Between “A History of Vocation: Tracing a Keyword of Work, Meaning and Moral Purpose” by Jane Dawson and “What is Vocation” by Juan L. Hijonosa In the current society, people often use one word to refer to several meanings. A phrase therefore has a variation of its concept and does not conform to one single meaning. The variation from a contemporary understanding is due to the historical shifts that arise with time. Vocation is a term in the society from the field of education and training especially when one talking about adult education. To most individuals vocation would easily refer to taking up a path that is religious in nature. Therefore, this is a concept that lingers in the minds of persons who do not involve themselves in finding the meaning and nature of the word. This paper sets to compare two articles that have discussed the term vocation. Jane Dawson, an assistant professor in the Department of Education at St. Francis Xavier University published a paper titled “A History of Vocation: Tracing a Keyword of Work, Meaning, and Moral Purpose”. This articles sets out to trace what Dawson refers to as the historical shift in the use of the word vocation and establishing a background that relates with the contemporary definition of understanding work in relation to the field of adult education and on how they can be considered in such a context. Jane does this by tracing the history of how different types of literature use the word vocation in order to establish a firm basis with the meaning of a social understanding in a given environment.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
