Revisitando os fundamentos da educação para a libertação: o legado de Paulo Freire

Revisiting the foundations of liberation education: Paulo Freire's legacy

Resumos

Este artigo examina, critica e amplia os fundamentos ontológicos, epistemológicos, éticos e políticos da teoria da educação libertadora de Paulo Freire; também situa o legado de Freire dentro da aplicação global de suas ideias em um amplo espectro de contextos educacionais. O texto defende historicidade e práxis como características essenciais da natureza humana, expõe os problemas das noções de identidades autênticas e constrói um entendimento historicizado da produção de conhecimento. O artigo defende que a educação libertadora deve estar baseada em uma ética sem presunção acoplada a uma política de não-violência militante.

This essay examines, critiques, and extends the ontological, epistemological, ethical, and political foundations of Paulo Freire's theory of liberation education; it also situates Freire's legacy within the global application of his ideas in a wide range of educational contexts. It defends historicity and praxis as essential characteristics of human existence, exposes the problems with notions of authentic identities, and elaborates a historicized understanding of knowledge production. The essay argues for liberation education to be grounded in an ethics without righteousness coupled with a politics of militant nonviolence.
