Kairotic Rhetoric in Freire's Liberatory Pedagogy.
Petruzzi, Anthony P.
JAC: A Journal of Composition Theory, v21 n2 p349-81 Spr 2001
Explores Paulo Freire's work from a rhetorical point of view suggesting that kairos is an important component of critical consciousness. Discusses three basic modes of disclosure: moods; understanding; and dialogic discourse. Notes that "being" is made known through these basic modes. Argues that kairos is a qualitative moment of transformation that gives critical consciousness its dynamic ethical and liberatory dimensions. (SG)
