Freire’s view of traditional pedagogy as oppressive and the proposition of the learning concept based on “problem posing” are useful in transforming communities. His work, however, fails to discuss the significance of a teacher in his proposed concept. In addition, the author’s work does not include the aspect gender, race and class and, therefore, open to criticism. The author discusses the issue of humanization and dehumanization; he asserts that oppressors thwart humanization through the injustice, violence and exploitation that they perpetuate. Freire’s pedagogy is worth recognizing because of its ability transform individuals into thinkers able to fight for their liberation.
