Provides new insights on the lasting impact of famed philosopher and educator Paulo Freire

50 years after the publication of his masterpiece, Pedagogy of the Oppressed, this book brings new perspectives on rethinking and reinventing Brazilian educator and philosopher Paulo Freire. Written by the most premier exponents and experts of Freirean scholarship, it explores the currency of Freire's contribution to social theory, educational reform, and democratic education. It also analyzes the intersections of Freire's theories with other crucial social theorists such as Gramsci, Gandhi, Habermas, Dewey, Sen, etc.

The Wiley Handbook of Paulo Freire studies the history and context of the man as a global public intellectual, moving from Brazil to the rest of the world and back. Each section offers insides on the epistemology of the global south initiated by Freire with his work in Latin America; the connections between class, gender, race, religion, the state and eco-pedagogy in the work of Freire; and the contributions he made to democratic education and educational reform.
* Presents original theory and analysis of Freire's life and work
* Offers unique and comprehensive analysis of the reception and application of Paulo Freire in international education on all continents
* Provides a complete historical study of Freire's contributions to education
* Systematically analyzes the impact of Freire in teachers training, higher education, and lifelong learning

The Wiley Handbook of Paulo Freire is an ideal book for courses on international and comparative education, pedagogy, education policy, international development, and Latin America studies.
