Pedagogy of the Oppressed (Penguin Education)by Paulo Freire
Synopses & Reviews
The methodology of the late Paulo Freire, once considered such a threat to the established order that he was invited to leave his native Brazil, has helped to empower countless impoverished and illiterate people throughout the world. Freire's work has taken on special urgency in the United States and Western Europe, where the creation of a permanent underclass among the underprivileged and minorities in cities and urban centers is increasingly accepted as the norm.
With a substantive new introduction to Freire's life and the remarkable impact of this book by writer and Freire confidant and authority Donaldo Macedo, this anniversary edition of Pedagogy of the Oppressed will inspire a new generation of educators, students, and general readers for years to come.
This text argues that the ignorance and lethargy of the poor are the direct result of the whole situation of economic, social and political domination. It suggests that every human being can and should develop a new awareness of self and through it, a voice.
