Spontaneity, Freedom, and First Philosophy: A Response to Peter Roberts.
Joldersma, Clarence W.
Journal of Educational Thought/Revue de la Pensee Educative, v35 n2 p157-160 Aug 2001
Contends that Paulo Freire's ethical agenda is situated in ontology, or more particularly, in the ontological vocation of humans. At the same time, his deepest motivation is an ethical one, seeking justice for the oppressed. Argues that these two factors-ontology and ethics-are in competition for the status of first philosophy in Freire's work. (NB)
