Paulo Freire and the Concept of Education
Beckett, Kelvin Stewart
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v45 n1 p49-62 2013
In this article, I argue that Paulo Freire's liberatory conception of education is interesting, challenging, even transforming because central to it are important aspects of education which other philosophers marginalise. I also argue that Freire's critics are right when they claim that he paid insufficient attention to another important aspect of education. Finally, I argue for a conception of education which takes account of the strengths and at the same time overcomes the limitations of Freire's liberatory conception.
