Enrique Dussel is considered one of the founding philosophers of liberation in the Latin American tradition, an influential arm of what is now called decoloniality. While he is astoundingly prolific, relatively few of his works can be found in English translation. Pedagogics of Liberation represents Dussel's early thought on pedagogics, or the field of philosophical inquiry that examines face-to-face relationships where there are inequalities, like teacher-student, adult-child, politician-community, and philosopher-nonphilosopher. The book provides a decolonial concept of education writ large, delimiting a liberatory pedagogics from an oppressive pedagogics by weaving together Latin American and European intellectual traditions. In this presentation, co-translator David I. Backer will give a brief sketch of the book's claims and the process of translating it into English.
