Description

Reviews

The author presents an analytical and critical study of the well-known and widely read contemporary adult educator Paulo Freire. The text deals with all aspects of his thought, placing at the center of consideration his educational philosophy. It should be of interest to scholars and practitioners in the many fields in which his thought has had an influence: philosophy, theology, education, social theory, political science, social work, and community development. This book would be an excellent supplement to graduate level course work in topics such as the sociology of education, an introduction to liberal studies, or multicultural education.

"… provides a useful introduction to Freire's work… main themes are carefully and systematically laid out. The Freire Method is well explained… the book's strength lies in the discussion of the important religious dimension in Freire's work... provides an excellent introductory account of the Marxist-Humanist influence…" -- Peter Mayo, University of Malta, Convergence

Elias's balanced and informed treatment of Freire's work and the influences that contributed to his thinking have enriched my understanding and appreciation of the person, his work, and his contributions to the field of education. I genuinely enjoyed this book and learned a great deal from it." -- Joanne Y. Corsica, SUNY/Empire State College, New Horizons in Adult Education, Winter 1995

Elias, whose own work in the field of adult religious education has been influenced by Freire's thought, has written a concise and thoughtful analysis. Those who are looking for an introduction to Freire and an overview of his thought will find this little book most helpful." -- Readings, Western Theological Seminary, Winter 1994-95
