Pedagogy of Hope: Reliving Pedagogy of the Oppressed
Continuum International Publishing Group Ltd.
With "Pedagogy of the Oppressed," Paulo Freire established his place in the universal history of education. "Pedagogy of Hope" represents a chronicle and synthesis of the ongoing social struggles of Latin America and the Third World since the landmark publication of "Pedagogy of the Oppressed." Here, Freire once again explores his best-known analytical themes--with even deeper understanding and a greater wisdom. Certainly, all of these themes have to be analyzed as elements of a body of critical, liberationist pedagogy. In this book, we come to understand the author's pedagogical thinking even better, through the critical seriousness, humanistic objectivity, and engaged subjectivity which, in all of Freire's books, are always wedded to a unique creative innovativeness." Pedagogy of Hope" is a testimonial to the inner vitality of generations that have not prospered, and to the often silent, generous strength of millions who refuse to let hope be extinguished: people throughout the world who have been empowered by "Pedagogy of the Oppressed" and all of Paulo Freire's writings.
