In Pedagogy of Freedom Paulo Freire travels ever more deeply into the territory where learning and activism are the essence of human life. This profound new book shows why an engaged way of learning and teaching is central to the creation of the individual, culture, and history.Freire finds in today's emerging global society a new context in which education cannot be indifferent to the reproduction of dominant ideologies and the interrogation of them. He argues against 'progressive' liberalism and its passive acceptance of a world where unemployment and hunger must inevitably co-exist with opulence. In so doing, he shows why an acceptance of fatalism leads to loss of personal and societal freedom_and how those individuals who think without optimism have lost their place in history.This book displays the striking creativity and profound insight that characterized Freire's work to the very end of his life_an uplifting and provocative exploration not only for educators, but for all who learn and live.


Pedagogy of Freedom is a rallying cry, calling us to 'speak true words' as educators and to disavow excesses of postmodern relativism that effectively nurture the march of intensified injustice and inequality.
