    1. What the young man meant by showing up to "something alive" was really showing up to someone alive — a teacher, present and thinking in front of him.

      I don't know. I think the student likely was referring to the dynamic interactions that happen among students and between students and professor, in a sort of gestalt effect. Because this emphasis on the professor just seems like another iteration of the banking model of ed.

    1. According to Freire, all forms of pedagogy represent a particular way of understanding society and a specific commitment to the future. Critical pedagogy, unlike dominant modes of teaching, insists that one of the fundamental tasks of educators is to make sure that the future points the way to a more socially just world, a world in which the discourses of critique and possibility in conjunction with the values of reason, freedom, and equality function to alter, as part of a broader democratic project, the grounds upon which life is lived.

    1. The key is the relationship between student and teacher. In this approach to education the teacher‑student teaches the student-teachers.

      Problem-posing education proposes that teachers need to learn from their students as well. Teachers are not "all-knowing."

    2. “Education as the exercise of domination stimulates the credulity of students, with the ideological intent (often not perceived by educators) of indoctrinating them to adapt to the world of oppression”. “Banking education”, though, is precisely the method favoured in the West to teach almost everyone.

    1. This indeed recognizes a truth; it is never the case in fact that theteacher always knows and the student never does. Even quite 'conventional' academic authorsoften testify to the contributions their students have made; this bears witness to the fact that ameaningful dialog has taken place between teacher and students.

      A little inspiration to the student to be critical, because we're not "real" unless we interpret all the information through the lens of the teacher. Unless we can instruct the teacher, to some extent, our education is pointless. Education can only be measured by interpretation of the material, but it's fleeting unless we entertain a dialogue shift.

    2. a contradiction in which they neither are fully human.

      was marx not fully human? i'm lost here.

    3. the formeraiming to suppress critical apprehension of reality the latter favouring the discovery of realitythrough critical thought and free communication

      People have asserted to me that being hypercritical of the entire world waters down my quality of life because it's not worth the effort of overthinking, "You should just LIVE" ... Now, I can be like "DON'T PUSH YOUR ANTIDIALOGIC ON ME, SUCKAAA"
