Abstract

This paper examines the contribution of Paulo Freire’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed to the discussion on human liberation and emancipation. The first part of the paper briefly analyzes the social context of Latin America in general, where Freire’s ideas were initially nurtured. The second part of the paper is divided into several parts, each examining an aspect of Freire’s ideas in the Pedagogy of the Oppressed. The third part of the paper identifies several contemporary social theoretical themes from Freire’s book that are relevant for critical discussion on strategies for social liberationfrom the structures of domination and oppression. The paper concludes with a Freirean call for humility and courage as we collectively and collaboratively work together to transform society for the better.
