 Paulo Freire: The PrometheanLiteracy (dissertation)
Freire's aim is to simultaneously strike four keys in the struggle for social justice: literacy, or as Freire says, the way we "read the word and the world", critical consciousness, the creation of liberation, and escalating economic production as people come to understand their surroundings.
Freire builds, therefore, a sense of the self-worth of the students and their own knowledge, uses their knowledge system as a base for literacy projects, and aims the literacy projects at goals which can be reached by a variety of paths.
Freire goes on to describe how it is that history is the method for analyzing the specificities of an area--and of a man. And Freire, who considered his period in Geneva and at Harvard to be exile, frequently insists he is a man of Northeastern Brazil.

 Paulo Freire and Pedagogy For Social Justice by Rich Gibson
Freire proposed that the use of his "see-judge-act" student-centered methods could lead to critical consciousness, that is, an awareness of the necessity to constantly unveil appearances designed to protect injustice which serves as a foundation for action toward equality and democracy.
Freire fails to recognize in depth the importance of his own call for the centripetal role of critical consciousness, that, is the role of ideas as a material force--especially the idea of equality.
Freire, constrained by his viewpoint which focuses on appearances, has an extraordinarily thin understanding of the revolution in Grenada and the years of preparation which preceded it--even though he was an active participant in the post-revolutionary government.

Freire's life and work as an educator is optimistic in spite of poverty, imprisonment, and exile.

 Biografias: A Voz do Biógrafo-Latino
Paulo Freire tem muitas vezes expressado seu interesse com as experiências de Angola e Moçambique em educação de adultos.
Freire argumentava que programas de educação adulta ajudariam a fortalecer a consciência revolucionária das pessoas que participaram da luta de libertação ou que estão comprometidas com o processo de transição para o socialismo e para mudança radical nas relações sociais de produção.
Finalmente, a noção de Freire de uma relação dialética entre a liderança revolucionária e as masssas tem um terreno rico nas práticas educacionais, na verdade - em termos gramscianos - um rico terreno para desenvolver a liderança de trabalhadores jovens.

 Paulo Freire and Eco-Justice: Updating Pedagogy of the Oppressed for the Age of Ecological Calamity by Richard Kahn
As Freire theorizes, it has always been the mindset of the oppressors to see themselves as “human,” while those that they prey upon are always less than such; like animals, they are barred from the prospects of history and the possibilities inherent in liberatory conduct.
Freire himself begins Pedagogy of the Oppressed by asserting that it too is but an example of the radical praxis of which he speaks.
It was Freire's great achievement in his pedagogy to instill within those trapped within the confines of limited situations the need to gain consciousness of the root structures by which they were bound.

 Biografias: A Voz da Esposa
Paulo Freire esteve no exílio por quase dezesseis anos, exatamente porque compreendeu a educação desta maneira e lutou para que um grande número de brasileiros e brasileiras tivesse acesso a esse bem a eles negado secularmente: o ato de ler a palavra lendo o mundo.
Quando Freire escreve, vai "lendo" outros autores e relendo a si próprio da mesma maneira que ao ler a si e a outros autores vai, ao mesmo tempo, escrevendo ou re-escrevendo a si e aos outros.
Freire jamais nega estas influências pois se sabe vivendo, trabalhando e fazendo em situação dada - que ele não fez - e, portanto, sofrendo, como todo homem e toda mulher - seres históricos - as influências da cultura de seu tempo e das culturas anteriores, mesmo se sabendo crítico e fazedor.

Encarcerado duas vezes, por causa de seus "método subversivo", a embaixada da Bolívia foi a única que aceitou Paulo Freire como refugiado político.
Nesse período, Freire analisou a questão da "extensão rural".
Nessa época, Paulo Freire chegou até mesmo a parar de usar o termo "conscientização", porque não queria contribuir para a equivocada concepção de que seria suficiente interpretar o mundo criticamente e não transformar, concomitantemente, as estruturas sociais, interpretadas por ele como opressoras.

Freire concentrates on the oppression of the poor and fails to deal realistically with oppression as it is found at all levels of society.
Freire insists that teachers should never impose their views of a problem on students, though he does not say teachers should or even could be neutral.
Freire has always asked us to be more critical, but we've allowed our affection for him and the important impact he had on all of us to get in the way.

Freire reflects on the impact his book has had, and on many of the issues it raises for readers in the 1990s.
Freire was a brilliant thinker, and his ideas about education and society are quite relevant; the main flaw with this book however, is one glaring contradiction--Freire seems to be completely ignoring his own proposal that ideas should be more accessible to the masses.
Freire wrotes admiringly of Mao's Cultural Revolution and Castro's Cuba, and quotes Lenin as a brother-in-arms.
