The Evolution of Critical Theory: An Analysis of Dialogue in Pedagogy of the Oppressed

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • Many theorists disagree on the correct interpretation of Marxism and Critical theory as it has evolved and developed throughout the progression of history. Some claim that Critical theory lacks incorporating diverse perspectives and individual agency while others claim that this is not the original intention of the Scholar. Although the changes seem miniscule, they have grave implications on whether Critical theory is appropriate to how a community can mobilize against Social Justice issues. Is it possible for individuals to unite despite the perpetual differences in ontologies and epistemologies? This research paper uses Sandoval’s Methodology of the Oppressed to compare with Paulo Freire’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed to understand how communities can potentially navigate around individual conceptual differences and generate an ethical commitment for change appropriate to their context.
