Danielle Kirby Philosophy of Education Weekly Journal 2 2/4/13 In Pedagogy of the Oppressed Paulo Freire writes about the problem of dehumanization and then moves into how to create pedagogy for those who are oppressed. Freire defines dehumanization as “a distortion of the vocation of becoming more fully human.” (pg. 44) According to Freire in order for the oppressed to end their oppression they must achieve it for themselves and the oppressors without themselves becoming the oppressor. The oppressor cannot facilitate this plight because they themselves are dehumanized because they dehumanize others. However, there is an inherent problem facing the oppressed which they must overcome in order to be free. Freire says “they (the oppressed) discover that without freedom they cannot exist authentically. Yet, although they desire authentic existence, they fear it”. (pg. 48) It is this problem which must be taken into account with regards to their education according to Freire.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
