SEVALHO, Gil. An essay on the idea of time in Paulo Freire: the presence of the bergsonian duration. Pro-Posições [online]. 2018, vol.29, n.1, pp.172-191. ISSN 1980-6248.

This essay discusses the idea of time in Paulo Freire, approximating his pedagogy to the bergsonian duration. It is based on bergsonian time quotations by Freire himself. Time is a complex element and is fruitful for investigation. This text presents time as an epistemological theme, it situates Henri Bergson’s thoughts about time, and, through an exercise of bricolage, it places both authors side by side, looking for bergsonian inspirations in Freire. Inspiration is here understood as a relationship of support to what already exists and reveals itself. Bergson’s statement that science denies time and his conception of duration as consciousness, quality, continuity, creation, changes, and liberty approximate themselves to Freire’s allusion to time, reinforcing the criticism and the liberating sense of his popular education. This impression is illustrated by mentioning the freirean concept of untested feasibility.

Palavras-chave : time; epistemology; Henri Bergson; Paulo Freire; popular education.
