This is an expanded English edition of a book first published in 2009 in Portuguese as Pedagogia da Solidariedade by Villa das Letras, Brazil. The book is based on interviews with and talks by educational theorist Paulo Freire shortly before his death, revealing his generosity of spirit and the ferocity of his belief in education as the foundation for social justice. Paulo Freire’s words are accompanied by comments from other scholars, including Freire’s wife Ana Maria Araujo Freire. Major themes include globalization, education in the 21st century, and hope in the age of disposability.
