The book explores the implications of Freirean theory for educational practice and shows how Freire can be helpful in bridging different genres and traditions. It addresses a number of themes, questions, and issues that have received relatively little attention to date, including Freire's conception of the critical intellectual, Freire and the problem of defining literacy, and the possibility of a Freirean response to debates over political correctness. Roberts also puts Freire's ideas into conversation with writers seldom considered by other Freirean scholars: Israel Scheffler, Fyodor Dostoevsky, and Hermann Hesse, among others. This book makes a distinctive contribution to the international literature on Freire's work.
