This book will present some aspects of what the writer has termed the pedagogy of the oppressed, a pedagogy which must be forged with, not for, the oppressed. In book: Mobilising Classics - Reading Radical Writing in Ireland, Chapter: Paulo Freire's Pedagogy of the Oppressed, Publisher: Manchester. Noelle Motril 5 May L – AB – 8 Book Review Pedagogy of the Oppressed by Paulo Freire: 30th Anniversary Edition with an Introduction by Donaldo.

Graff states that Marxist language should not be used, as the masses would not be able to comprehend the meaning of the terms.

It had never occurred to my mind how powerful the use of euphemisms can be, had I not read the book. Being a Foucauldian, I am well aware of the power words have; the power euphemisms hold. If people were to hide under the curtains of euphemisms, the gravity of the injustices committed to the oppressed would be toned down, and the real tragedy and all the bloodshed would appear to be taken lightly.

Even in the midst of class chaos, the bourgeois, the ruling class, still manages to manipulate the masses and members of their own class using the power of words — squeezing icing onto a cake of bloodshed and tears.

I definitely agree with the arguments Macedo has made against Graff.

Graff states that those belonging to the working class would not comprehend the use of Marxist language in the book, with the working class being the supposed target audience of Freire. Macedo argues that when he and Freire had a semi - literate African — American woman from the ghetto read Pedagogy of the Oppressed, she understood the context of the book and even asked Freire for a copy for her son.

Macedo then states that if a semi — literate or semi — educated woman from the ghetto was able to comprehend the meaning of the Marxist terms, why could an academic do the same? Donaldo Macedo also briefly discusses the traditional student — teacher settings, and how Freire criticizes the banking model of education.

Personally, I have encountered such posts, and perhaps, I may have even made content about those said rants.


One of the concepts that I was introduced to is the mechanization of dialogue. This mechanization in teaching Freire is a glaring irony, as he is very much against the concept of losing the essence of dialogue and of banking education. For the latter part of the introduction, Macedo recalls his times and moments with Freire and his personal life.

Basing it on his lived experiences, Freire himself was enlightened to analyze the structures of society and it was there that he empathized the most with the oppressed.

Freire states that class is a much more unifying force than race, however, I beg to disagree.

I still believe that race or nationality is more unifying than class. In my lived experiences, I have seen people being united as a race rather than through class divisions.

I have seen and observed it in the different venues of micropolitics, such as in daily conversations, classroom discussions admittedly, through the system of banking education , on social media platforms, TV shows, movies, teleseryes, songs, and the like. It must be pursued constantly and responsibly.

Pedagogy of the Oppressed

Freedom is not an ideal located outside of man; nor is it an idea which becomes myth. It is rather the indispensable condition for the quest for human completion". The second chapter examines the "banking" approach to education—a metaphor used by Freire that suggests students are considered empty bank accounts that should remain open to deposits made by the teacher.

Freire rejects the "banking" approach, claiming it results in the dehumanization of both the students and the teachers.

In addition, he argues the banking approach stimulates oppressive attitudes and practices in society. Instead, Freire advocates for a more world-mediated, mutual approach to education that encourages the co-creation of knowledge.

According to Freire, this "authentic" approach to education must allow people to be aware of their incompleteness and strive to be more fully human. This attempt to use education as a means of consciously shaping the person and the society is called conscientization , a term first coined by Freire in this book.

The third chapter discusses the idea that "to speak the true word is to transform the world". The last chapter proposes dialogics as an instrument to free the colonized, through the use of cooperation, unity, organization and cultural synthesis overcoming problems in society to liberate human beings.

This is in contrast to antidialogics, which use conquest, manipulation, cultural invasion, and the concept of divide and rule.Freire outlines a theory of oppression and the source of liberation. Examining how the balance of power between the colonizer and the colonized remains relatively stable, Freire admits that the powerless in society can be frightened of freedom.

In my lived experiences, I have seen people being united as a race rather than through class divisions. This is not to say that class does not have a unifying force at all.

Paulo Freire Pages: This happens through a new type of education, one which creates a partnership between the teacher and the student, empowering the student to enter into a dialogue and begin the process of humanization through thought and its correlative, action. I agree with Freire that after the oppressed fight for themselves, they should be careful not to turn into the oppressors of the oppressors.
