Books For Critical Consciousness

Author:

Paulo Freire argued that critical consciousness was a necessary feature of a liberatory education. By critical consciousness, he meant the ability to recognize the economic, political and social contradictions that create, benefit and maintain an oppressive social order. This critical consciousness, accompanied by social action, was aimed at bringing about freedom and a just social order. Critical consciousness provides the tools through which learners can engage and shape their world.

With this collection of book reviews, J. Progler aims to raise critical consciousness about contemporary economic, social and political problems that could be seen as remnants of the old physical order of colonialism, and which constitute instead a more subtle but on going form of intellectual colonialism.
