In the pursuit of a set of internally related practice principles which embody the values espoused here, we came upon the work of Paolo Freire. Freire is an educator. His early work was devoted to literacy training of both urban and rural poor people in his native country, Brazil. Because we feel that all social interactions, and particularly those types of interaction which are purposive, are teaching/learning exchanges, we find Freire’s work of inestimable value to us. His theoretical framework, his basis for intervention, is dialectical: objective historical conditions are Practice theory—bridging the gap to action 41 seen as central to subjective expressive experience, each posited as a relation of the other.
Transformation requires reconnection to the objective world of daily oppression. Subjective validation occurs only through this process of rehumanization, of becoming a participant in producing the social world. But this process must be initiated by those not so fully submerged, by those capable of critical reflection about exploitation, domination and manipulation. This act of leadership, of teaching, begins with the effort to identify aspects of the ‘no exit’ reality which can be contemplated.
Dialogue thus implies a relation based on trust, mediated by the concrete, objective world, for the purpose of transforming it: Dialogue is The encounter in which the united reflection and action of the dialoguers are addressed to the world which is to be transformed and humanized, [therefore] this dialogue cannot be reduced to the act of one person’s ‘depositing’ ideas in another, nor can it become a simple exchange of ideas to be ‘consumed’ by the discussants…. It is an act of creation; it must not serve as a crafty instrument for the dominantion of one man by another.
