Paulo Freire e l’educazione alla giustizia sociale tra storicità e dialogo

Author: Emiliana Mangone


For Paolo Freire, education is political action that aims to implement social justice. The intent was to build an educational practice (praxis) that would allow the oppressed populations of Latin America to achieve freedom by overcoming what made a status quo of strong inequality between classes stagnant. The objective of this article is to highlight how that practice is still applicable and reproducible in other geographical areas today since it is based on two non-negligible social aspects, historicity and dialogue, which allow men to overcome the status of “objects” (as oppressed) and assume the status of “subjects” (individual and collective) of history for a continuous process of change and elimination of the structures of oppression.

Keywords: Freire, Critical education, Social justice
