The authors examine contributions of John Dewey and Paulo Freire to the philosophy of education and transformative pedagogy. The authors argue that both John Dewey and Paulo Freire, with their focus on epistemology, ethics and political philosophy have much to offer to transformative and empowering pedagogy in the era of neo-conservatism, aggressive competition and dehumanising globalisation.
