ANNOTATION

Representing some of the last writings by Freire, Pedagogy of the Heart is filled with Freire's reminiscences of his early life and meditations "under my mango tree." These meditations include discussions of Solitude and Community,The Limit of the Right, Neoliberals and Progressives, Lessons from Exile, The "Lefts" and the Right, Dialogism, and Faith and Hope. Many of these will be familiar themes for those who have walked with Freire before. For those coming to his work for the first time, Pedagogy of the Heart will open new doors to the interrelations of education and political struggle. Further enhancing the text are substantive notes by Ana Maria Araujo Freire. Freire was a political activist-a passionate progressive who believed in the inseparability of learning from political consciousness and of political consciousness from political action. In this book, Freire looks into his own life to reflect on education and politics, politics and education. He reveals himself as an uncompromising democrat and unrepentant radical reformer.
