Haddad (Ed.), By CLAY WARREN Connections between the educational philosophy of Denmark’s N.F.S. Grundtvig (1783-1872) and Brazil’s Paulo Freire (1921-1997) have been made from time to time; however, these interrelationships have never been the subject of a major treatise nor has a book detailing Grundtvigian ideas been published in Portuguese until now. In late 2020, such a book became available to people who would like to learn more about these major advocates for the classroom as an agency of social change: Grundtvig e Freire: escolas populares na Dinamarca e no Brasil. The book is comprised of eight chapters (not counting the introduction), six of which (those that are English-language-based) are provided in both Portuguese and English. These ideas were examined in Grundtvig and Freire. Scholars found that both Grundtvig and Freire believed that the ultimate reason for learning is enlightenment of life (as Grundtvig put it) or in raising awareness (conscien­tizacão, as Freire put it). With appropriate enlightenment and awareness, a person is then able to knowledgeably engage in social participation to help run a government by the people for the people (as Americans put it). Sérgio Haddad, the editor, graduated with a Doctorate in History and Philosophy of Education at the University of São Paulo. He is a researcher and coordinator at NGO Acão Educativa. The contributors include six scholars from Brazil and six scholars from an international pool: Sérgio Haddad, Gabriela Zeppone, Janaina Uemura, Maria Clara Di Perro, Angéli­ca Kuhn, and Roberto Cattelli Jr. - Brazil; Ove Korsgaard - Denmark; Clay Warren and Carrie Ann Welsh - U.S.A.; Asoke Bhattacharya - India & Bangladesh; Marcella Mila­na - Italy & England; and Tore Sørensen - Belgium.
