Paulo Freire's thought on the critical-emancipatory curriculum paradigm

Philosophers, educators and curriculum experts committed to the paradigm of emancipatory education in several countries share the idea that the political-pedagogical thinking of Paulo Freire is always in motion and that it dialogues with various contemporary issues, thus providing guidance for the construction of a curriculum theory emancipatory and ethically committed to humanize each individual. This article analyzes the elements that shape a liberating educational proposition, showing the dialogue as one of the founding categories of Freire's thinking, appropriated to deal with curriculum issues in a critical-emancipatory perspective.
