Paulo Freire’s theme in his last book is analyzed by Cirigliano from a non-conventional perspective that allows us to appreciate Freire’s cosmovision. The author notes that for Freire each word fits into a certain time (pre-time, ill time, or out of time) that determines its validity and meaning. In addition, words carry a qualitative value that depends on the instance in which the words are used. The instance revolves around three axes or levels: innate impulse or desire, rationality, and commitment or testimony. From the importance that Freire gives to the word emerges another, which allows it to be used in the narration of our lives with the intention of discovering our transcendental experiences. The article denotes that Freire’s book illustrates three elements of his thought: communication based on dialogue, use of conscience, and hope. Freire believes that hope is the most important and indispensable element, and to it he assigns three levels: hope as an existential necessity, the need for an education about hope, and hope’s transforming action and practice.
