Pedagogy of the Oppressed pt. 2
RADICAL PEDAGOGY RESEARCH GROUP
In the second reading group of the series on Paulo Freire’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed we will discuss chapter two, where he critiques the ‘banking’ model of education, together with Jean-Paul Sartre’s essay Intentionality: A Fundamental Idea of Husserl’s Phenomenology, originally published in Nouvelle Revue Francaise LII, Jan 1939, one year after Edmund Husserl’s death. Sartre rejects traditional epistemologies and models of consciousness in favour of Husserl’s intentional theory of consciousness, namely that consciousness is always consciousness of something.
