ANNOTATION

No contemporary writer more persistently explores the many dimensions of critical consciousness than Paulo Freire, a multi-cultural educator with the whole world as his classroom notwithstanding the totally Brazilian flavor of his emotions, his language, and his universe of thought. Freire never tires of looking for new forms of critical consciousness and unearthing new links between oppression in a variety of settings and the liberating effects of consciousness. The unifying thread in his work is critical consciousness as the motor of cultural emancipation. Paulo Freire's Utopianism is no idealistic dream spun out of a mind ideologically enamored of dialogue or of critical consciousness. No, it grows out of his practical involvement with oppressed groups in a process of struggle.
