"An inspiring and inspired document arising out of concrete experience with peasants, urban laborers, and middle class converts to freedom. . . . This book will prompt the reader to reconsider his or her situation in an oppressive society."—Christian Century
"[Paulo Freire] radiates the kind of immediateness that only a philosopher engulfed by terrible reality can project."—America
"Pedagogy of the Oppressed meets the single criterion of a 'classic': it has outlived his own time and its author's. For any teacher who links education to social change, this is required reading. Freire remains the most important writer on popular education and surely the virtual founder of the perspective known as Critical Pedagogy."—Stanley Aronowitz
"This is truly revolutionary pedagogy."—Ivan Illich
"Wherever education is explicitly involved in struggles for equity and justice, Freire's ideas and his books, especially Pedagogy of the Oppressed, will live on." —Herbert Kohl in The Nation
"Brilliant methodology of a highly charged and politically provocative character."—Jonathan Kozol

As a teacher, I challenge my students to think about how those “with” power are both products of a system that existed before them and how they perpetuate this system. Thus, searching for the causes of oppression requires looking beyond the individual to the larger structures that shape culture and society. For Freire, pedagogy is the practice needed for such a task. So that we may seek out the causes of oppression. Therefore, re-reading this book reminded me that although dehumanization is practiced by individual bodies, all of us (powerful and not) are products of dehumanization. Through pedagogy, dehumanization and oppression are seen as phenomenon that can be transformed; they aren’t something that just fixed. If you are like me and looking for ways to make sense of the world around you, I urge you to pick up this book. I can promise you will find something meaningful.
On another note, for people who have difficulty understanding the book are, in my opinion, often people who are unable to understand that yes, in fact, there is a structure of oppression in our society. We are all part of it, and it saddens me to see that some people are unable to realize the reality around them. Once this realization is reached, the book will suddenly become much more meaningful. Please read it after you have reached that point.
