Pedagogy of the Oppressed pt. 2
RADICAL PEDAGOGY RESEARCH GROUP
In the second of the series on Paulo Freire’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed we’re reading chapter two and Jean-Paul Sartre’s essay Intentionality: A Fundamental Idea of Husserl’s Phenomenology (1939). Freire critiques the ‘banking’ model of education through a discussion of consciousness. 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.
