Critical and Postmodern Perspectives on Adult Learning.
Kilgore, Deborah W.
New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education, n89 p53-61 Spr 2001
In critical theory, knowledge is a rational human product, power is possessed by subjects, knowledge frees subjects from power, and learning occurs through critical reflection. In a postmodern perspective, knowledge is tentative, power is expressed by subjects, knowledge is an expression of power, and learning occurs through deconstruction and play.
