Abstract

This article discusses Freire's concept of conscientization or social learning. This view of learning is situated in the Marxist tradition. The various levels of consciousness described by Freire are analyzed. Certain criticisms are made of Freire's theory of learning. This theory of learning is compared to the theory of John Dewey and found to be decidedly more radical. Freire's view of learning as necessarily social and political is found to be most relevant for educators in North America.
