Paulo Freire und die Befreiungstheologie: Über ein christliches Verständnis von kritisch-revolutionärer PädagogikPeter McLaren, in den USA und weit darüber hinaus Gründungsfigur und Ikone einer kritisch-revolutionären Pädagogik, erläutert hier im Dialog mit Petar Jandrić indirekt seine eigene Position, indem er sie mit Paulo Freires Befreiungspädagogik und der südamerikanischen Befreiungstheologie konfrontiert und dabei seinen Ausgang von einem Marxschen Humanismus aufdeckt und sich selbst als einen »Marxist humanistic social justice educator« identifiziert.
