Gustavo Gutiérrez och Paulo Freire - en jämförelse
2005 (Swedish)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
Abstract [en]

The purpose with this paper is to investigate similarities and differences between Gustavo Gutiérrez theology of liberation and Paulo Freires “liberation pedagogy”. The research questions were to describe how the liberation process should occur and how they describe the people, both the oppressed and the oppressors. Both have quite similar way of reason about how the liberation process should occur. Both point at the importance of making the oppressed people of Latin America aware of their situation. If they do not se the oppression them selves than they can not do anything about it. The difference between them is more the method they use to study the situation. Gutiérrez mean that the church has to take a step forward and proclaim the Christian faith by teaching mercy, Gods liberation and salvation. This he does, for example, by describing how God saved Israel from Egypt. He means that the promised kingdom of heaven only will arrive when people show solidarity with other people and fight for liberation of all in the name of God. Freire on the other hand does not have any religious thoughts in his pedagogy. He means that the way of making people aware of their situation and join the revolution leaders is by keeping a dialog with them. In describing the people there are both similarities and differences between them. The similarities is that they both see the oppressed as victims of the oppressed class capitalism. The biggest difference is how they see the oppressors. Gutiérrez describes them as sinners who have to become aware of their situation to become free of sin. Freire describes the oppressors as victims them selves. They, as the oppressed, have never experienced anything except oppression an can therefor not free themselves. The oppressed have to free both them selves and the oppressors. Freire also bring forward the oppressors part in the revolution process as leaders of the people. The leaders have to come from the oppression class, people whose eyes have been opened, and lead the people during the revolution using dialog and co-operation. The oppressed them selves usually can not produce leaders because the oppression goes to deep in them that they do not dare to think of any other life.
