ANNOTATION

Dedicated to a transformation of education so that it becomes an instrument of liberation rather than oppression, Freire discusses in unprecedented depth the implications and consequences of his pedagogical theory concerning three main problems faced by contemporary higher education: power and education, curriculum and social reality, and the role of intellectuals. This "dialogue" with Freire enlarges the body of knowledge regarding his thinking about educational emancipation and the role of higher education in encouraging self reliance. More than an academic work, this book is a testimony of the political and educational thought of a group of professors from the National University of Mexico who took advantage of the opportunity to have Paulo Freire's pressence on their campus to build an educational discourse focused on his work and practice.
