The last book written by Paulo Freire before his death, Pedagogy of Indignation speaks to the necessity of making and remaking one's self throughout a lifetime, the role of education in personal development, and the daily life tensions between freedom and authority.
The book sharpens our sense of the critical faculties of children. It shows how a teacher, drawing upon his or her own depth as a person, may work with children to help them realize their potential intellectually and as human beings. These topics are also explored in relation to the wider world: the social constitution of the self in the work of educators; critical citizenship; and the necessity of teaching 'from a position' about the world that transcends literacy programs to include the legacy of colonialism in peoples' resistance movements today.
