Pedagogia Profana Jorge Larrosa Download Pdf

Pedagogia Profana is a book by Jorge Larrosa, a Spanish philosopher and educator, that explores the concepts of language, subjectivity, and formation in relation to education. The book is composed of nine essays that were previously published between 1994 and 1997 in various journals and magazines. The book was first published in Spanish in 2000 by Novedades Educativas and later translated into Portuguese and published by Autêntica in 2010.

The book challenges the conventional ways of thinking and writing about pedagogy, proposing a new style that does not follow the logic of questions and answers, doubts and certainties, problems and solutions. Instead, the book invites the reader to engage in a dialogue with the author, who uses different literary genres and devices, such as metaphors, paradoxes, anecdotes, stories, poems, and images, to convey his ideas and reflections. The book also draws on various sources of inspiration, such as philosophy, literature, art, psychoanalysis, and personal experiences.

The main themes that the book addresses are the following:

  • The paradoxes of self-consciousness: how we become who we are through the language that shapes us and the experiences that transform us.

  • The spirit of childhood: how we can learn from the children's way of being in the world, their curiosity, their creativity, their playfulness, and their openness to the unknown.

  • The images of paradise: how we can imagine different scenarios of education that are not based on domination, repression, or normalization, but on freedom, joy, and diversity.

  • The experience of reading: how we can become different through the encounter with texts that challenge us, move us, and change us.

  • The pedagogical novel and the pedagogization of the novel: how we can analyze the relationship between fiction and education, both as forms of storytelling and as forms of subjectivation.

  • The lesson: how we can rethink the act of teaching and learning as a mutual exchange of knowledge, emotions, and meanings.

  • The praise of laughter: how we can use humor as a tool for critique, resistance, and liberation in education.

  • The enigma of childhood: how we can approach the child as an other who escapes our understanding and challenges our assumptions.

  • The images of studying: how we can conceive studying as a practice of desire, passion, and pleasure that goes beyond the instrumentalization of knowledge.
