This paper examines the similarities and differences as well as the limitations and possibilities of critical pedagogy, feminist pedagogy and some of the more radical strands of multicultural education in adult education. As postmodern thought has begun to influence these discourses, a brief look at postmodernism in relation to these three pedagogical theories will be presented. Furthermore, it will be proposed that a synthesis while maintaining difference between these pedagogical strands may have the potential to minimize the limitations and multiply the possibilities of a critical adult pedagogy. It will be suggested that this endeavour may be deepened through the utilization of a strategic postmodern lens of analysis.
