Critical Education Against Global Capitalism – Karl Marx and Revolutionary Critical Education


In this book, I describe an approach to critical education that was developed through my work with adults. I call it revolutionary critical education. It is an approach that aims to prepare people to engage in self and social transformation, and it also is an approach that could become the norm in a socially and economically transformed society. In those future conditions, adult revolutionary critical education would take the lead in the educational development of individuals such that critical education for younger people would aim to develop the social, intellectual and moral-ethical abilities that would prepare them for their future engagement in revolutionary critical adult education activities. As a consequence, education throughout life would be continually fostering the abilities of citizens who would be constantly engaged in democratically creating and recreating their society at every level. This may sound utopian, but I think it is a feasible utopia, which revolutionary critical educators should be striving to make a reality.
