This volume looks at the territory of learning and activism, the essence of human life. This book shows why an engaged way of learning and teaching is central to the creation of the individual, culture and history. The author, Paulo Freire, finds in the emerging global society a new context in which education cannot be indifferent to the reproduction of dominant ideologies and the interrogation of them. Freire shows why an acceptance of fatalism leads to loss of personal and societal freedoms, he argues against progressive liberalsim and its acceptance of a world where poverty must inevitably coexist with opulence.
