Title: My last conversation with Paulo Freire
Author: Torres, Carlos Alberto
Abstract: I was traveling, at the end of April 1997, to Madrid from Los Angeles where I have lived for almost two decades, to participate in a conference organized by the Universidad Complutense and the University of California. On the way to the airport I had a sudden impulse to call Paulo Freire. I cannot recall why I felt such urgency, but we had been planning to write a book together about new educational challenges at the threshold of the XXI century. The book had a tentative title: Education and the Possible Dream. We wanted to update the discussion about some of Paulo’s great theses and think about ways to implement them in classrooms of the advanced capitalist world. We wanted, to use a phrase dear to Paulo, to “reinvent and not to repeat Paulo Freire.”
