First published in Portuguese in 1968, Pedagogy of the Oppressed was translated and published in English in 1970. The methodology of the late Paulo Freire has helped to empower countless impoverished and illiterate people throughout the world. Freire's work has taken on especial urgency in the United States and Western Europe, where the creation of a permanent underclass among the underprivileged and minorities in cities and urban centers is increasingly accepted as the norm. With a substantive new introduction on Freire's life and the remarkable impact of this book by writer and Freire confidant and authority Donaldo Macedo, this anniversary edition of Pedagogy of the Oppressed will inspire a new generation of educators, students, and general readers for years to come.

Diese Sammlung von Schriften aus der Zeit von 1970 bis 1990 des brasilianischen Pädagogen Paulo Freire (1921-1997) gibt einen Einblick in die Grundlagen und Prinzipien seiner Bildungsarbeit auf der Basis der Pädagogik der Befreiung. In den ausgewählten Texten werden nicht nur pädagogische Probleme und inhaltlich-methodische Fragen der Bildungsarbeit thematisiert. Sie enthalten ebenso Analysen und Bewertungen von Politik, Kultur, Religion, Ethik und Veränderungsmöglichkeiten von Gesellschaft - eine Erweiterung, die sich gegen eine Vorstellung wendet, Pädagogik sei von Gesellschaft und Politik losgelöst zu behandeln. Scharfsinnig hat Freire u.a. die verheerenden Folgen des Neoliberalismus für Individuum und Gesellschaft analysiert und zum widerständigen Denken und Handeln ermuntert. Eine Auswahl repräsentativer alter und neuer Texte von Paulo Freire: Wer sie zur Hand nimmt, entdeckt rasch, dass uns dieser brasilianische Pädagoge nicht nur für die Theorie und Praxis unserer Erziehungsarbeit, sondern für unser Überleben Entscheidendes zu sagen hat.

This book explores how culture and citizenship are theorised, promoted and learned throughout schools in Wales. Following a brief history of Welsh education and a discussion of how contemporary cultural identity is theorised through citizenship education curricula, it illustrates how archaic approaches to understanding cultural identity continue to undermine the development of culturally relevant curriculum in Wales. Smith also analyses how young people discuss their orientations to Welshness, how teachers engage with the requirements of the Curriculum Cymreig and how these reactions develop within educational settings. Ending with a recommendation for a more sophisticated framework for conceptualising identity and a critical approach for discussing citizenship and cultural identity in schools in Wales, this book highlights how the critical pedagogy can progress further.

While student voice has been well-defined in research, how to sustain youth-adult leadership work is less understood. Students are rarely invited to lead school reform efforts, and when they are, their voice is silenced by the structural arrangements and socio-cultural conditions found in schools. This volume investigates problems with the neoliberal school reform movement, and how youth-adult partnerships have resulted in more effective reforms within schools and community organizations nationally and internationally. Stemming from an eight-year ethnographic study at a civic-themed public high school, the volume highlights the process of creating a school governance structure which produces active and informed citizens. Made up of executive, legislative and judicial branches, the program gives students the power to make, implement and review school policies and practices—a model that has found to effectively distribute leadership and trigger organizational learning, and is thus at the forefront of civic education.

Although bell hooks has long challenged the dominant paradigms of race, class, and gender, there has never been a comprehensive book critically reflecting upon this seminal scholar’s body of work. Her written works aim to transgress and disrupt those codes that exclude others as intellectually mediocre, and hooks’ challenge to various hegemonic practices has heavily influenced scholars in numerous areas of inquiry. This important resource thematically examines hooks’ works across various disciplinary divides, including her critique on educational theory and practice, theorization of racial construction, dynamics of gender, and spirituality and love as correctives in postmodern life. Ultimately, this book offers a fresh perspective for scholars and students wanting to engage in the prominent work of bell hooks, and makes available to its readers the full significance of her work. Compelling and unprecedented, Critical Perspectives on bell hooks is a must-read for scholars, professors, and students interested in issues of race, class, and gender.

Zu der kurzen Frage „Haben oder Sein?“ entwickelt Erich Fromm in diesem Buch eine tiefgründige Gesellschaftsanalyse, in der er zwei grundsätzliche Existenzformen herausarbeitet: die egoistisch-gewinnorientierte des Besitzens und Verfügens über Dinge und Menschen (Haben) und die altruistisch-solidarische des gebenden Erlebens (Sein). Fromm zeigt, dass unser gegenwärtiges Gesellschafts- und Wirtschaftssystem durch Egoismus, Selbstsucht und Habgier bestimmt ist und unweigerlich zerstörerische Folgen für Mensch und Natur mit sich bringt. Im zweiten Teil des Buches vermittelt er dem Leser durch viele Beispielen Ideen, wie er sich vom „Haben“ in Richtung „Sein“ und damit hin zu einem neuen Menschen entwickeln kann. Im dritten Teil von „Haben oder Sein“ beschreibt Fromm die Voraussetzungen für einen fundamentalen Wandel in Wirtschaft, Politik und Gesellschaft, um die gegenwärtigen Krise zu überwinden und von einer Orientierung am Haben zu einer am Sein zu gelangen. Aus dem Inhalt: Erster Teil: Zum Verständnis des Unterschieds zwischen Haben und Sein • Auf den ersten Blick • Haben und Sein in der alltäglichen Erfahrung • Haben und Sein im Alten und Neuen Testament und in den Schriften Meister Eckharts Zweiter Teil: Analyse der grundlegenden Unterschiede zwischen den beiden Existenzweisen • Die Existenzweise des Habens • Die Existenzweise des Seins • Weitere Aspekte von Haben und Sein Dritter Teil: Der neue Mensch und die neue Gesellschaft • Religion, Charakter und Gesellschaft • Voraussetzungen für den Wandel des Menschen und Wesensmerkmale des neuen Menschen • Wesensmerkmale der neuen Gesellschaft
