Availability: Ready to download

This is the first English translation of the last book written by Paulo Freire. Pedagogy of Indignation delves ever deeper into the themes that concerned him throughout his life. The book begins with a series of three deeply moving reflective "pedagogical letters" to the reader about the role of education for one's development of self. He also speaks directly to the reader This is the first English translation of the last book written by Paulo Freire. Pedagogy of Indignation delves ever deeper into the themes that concerned him throughout his life. The book begins with a series of three deeply moving reflective "pedagogical letters" to the reader about the role of education for one's development of self. He also speaks directly to the reader about the relationship to risk in one's life and he delves deeper than before into the daily life tensions between freedom and authority. Building on these interconnected themes, Freire sharpens our sense of the critical faculties of children and how a teacher may work with children to help them realize their potential intellectually and as human beings. Subsequent chapters explore these topics in relation to the wider social world: the social constitution of the self in the work of educators; critical citizenship; and the necessity of teaching "from a position" about the world that goes beyond literacy programs to include the legacy of colonialism in peoples' resistance movements today. The book's poignant interludes, written by Ana Maria Araujo Freire, reveal Paulo's thoughts about the content of this book as he was completing it during the last weeks and days of his life.

    Um livro apenas leve em peso, o seu conteúdo é denso. É a última obra de Freire. Nela ainda encontramos o homem que sonha com a possibilidade de mandarmos no futuro. É uma pena que tenham votado o autor ao ostracismo e ao cerne de debates políticos completamente inúteis e que desvirtuam a imensa obra de Freire. A pedagogia de Paulo Freire é hoje, mais que nunca, necessária. Não forma e informa apenas alunos, mas pessoas. -- "A educação tem sentido porque o mundo não é necessariamente isto ou aqui Um livro apenas leve em peso, o seu conteúdo é denso.

Se as mulheres e os homens simplesmente fossem não haveria porque falar em educação."

    Paulo Freire é definitivamente um sujeito bacana.

For those who have read Freire, this is a recapitulation of some of his major themes.For those unfamiliar with his writing, this book is an introduction to thosemany themes. - the future not as determination, but as possibility; the fact that human beings create their futures through concerted action - we not only know and our conditioned by our history, but we make our history as well - the rightness of anger in the face of injustice - the dialectic of both denunciation of injustice and anunciation of a better world (utopia) in proclaiming hope - the political nature of all education; no teaching is politically neutral - the need for activists to respect the perspective and views of those they are seeking to "liberate" - the bond between apprehending a topic, and acting in relation to what is learned; the link between learning and action (praxis) One refrain that is repeated several times throughout this short book is "changing [the world:] is difficult, but it is possible." This from a man who sufferred greatly for his convicitons, but literally until his death, had not given up the struggle to overcome injustice

    La indignación como la fuente del cambio es una precisión bastante interesante, pero aún más el hecho de que todo cambio social debe partir desde el amor, la fraternidad, la ética y el respeto no sólo entre los seres humanos, sino también con la naturaleza que nos rodea. Sin duda Paulo Freire tenía una gran sensibilidad que logró transmitir a través de las "cartas" que reúne este libro.

    Es un libro, que aunque corto (172 páginas), tiene mucho por descubrir, por desglosar y disfrutar. En mi opinión, la forma en que escribe Freire es hermosa, y debo decir que por momentos me cansé, luché con él, pero lo disfruté y me llené de él. ¡Recomendado!

    My first introduction to Freire, I picked this one up in grad school but never actually had a chance to read it. I found it to be a thoughtful work - although Freire himself is a teacher/educator, his writings are much more philosophical in nature (yet he weaves education as a central unifying theme throughout). This book was a compilation of letters written before his death, and mostly seemed to serve as a justification for "fighting the good fight." He talked about neoliberalism and its fatalis My first introduction to Freire, I picked this one up in grad school but never actually had a chance to read it.

This book was a compilation of letters written before his death, and mostly seemed to serve as a justification for "fighting the good fight." He talked about neoliberalism and its fatalistic ideology, universal human ethics and the need to fight for hope, and the fundamental freedom/responsibility of humans to forge their own destiny. The concept I found most insightful was simply that we must look at our lives as conditioned but not determined - simultaneously acknowledging and accepting the forces that bear upon us, but never denying our fundamental right to self-determination. There was a fair bit of repetition in this book, but the book was a pretty quick read and so did not become tiresome. It certainly succeeded in whetting my appetite to read more - I'm looking forward now to reading Pedagogy of the Oppressed!

    Pushing aside anything convenient, easy or comforting for educators, this book quickly, deftly and meaningfully pushed me away from the complacency I felt with suffocating my frustration while teaching. Instead, Freire directly challenged me to step up, look within, and shout out about the actual, obvious and painfully righteous indignation I felt about society today. It insists the reader does MORE with their work.

    Another one of my top most important reads. Freire is a huge influence on my thinking about education and socially relevant pedagogy.
