Education for Critical Consciousness, Paperback Book

Education for Critical Consciousness Paperback

Part of the Bloomsbury Revelations series



Famous for his advocacy of 'critical pedagogy', Paulo Freire was Latin America's foremost educationalist, a thinker and writer whose work and ideas continue to exert enormous influence in education throughout the world today.

Education for Critical Consciousness is the main statement of Freire's revolutionary method of education.

It takes the life situation of the learner as its starting point and the raising of consciousness and the overcoming of obstacles as its goals.

For Freire, man's striving for his own humanity requires the changing of structures which dehumanize both the oppressor and the oppressed.
