Freire’s philosophy of education is not a simple method but rather an organic political consciousness. The domination of some by others must be overcome, in his view, so that the humanization of all can take place.
In educational circles, Freire is viewed as one of the founding figures of critical pedagogy. He is best recognized for his adult literacy programs in impoverished communities and for his classic early text: Pedagogy of the Oppressed. As a writer, he was most creative in the last ten years of his life.
