About publishing company:
This book, newly translated from the original version, focuses on liberation in education. In the author’s view, the objective of education is to liberate oneself from injustice and an oppressive reality. Education, therefore, seeks liberation, the radical transformation of the subject, who is educated and who also educates. His accusation of an unjust world opens the door to a transformational criticism capable of ushering in a new reality. Education for liberation is situated on the horizon of a utopian view of society. For Freire, this new reality is the utopia of today’s educator.
