Part of the Critical Studies of Education book series (CSOE)


Reflections of Joe L. Kincheloes’ applications of Freirean dialogue and love foreground a history of Joe’s work in Spain. Two scholars influenced by the key works of Kincheloe center the vision of critical education and radical love on Freire and his influences through Joe. Radical love is defined as an abiding emotional tie between and among critical pedagogues whose personages and scholarly work transform the world.
