Truth and Liberation: For a Formative Hermeneutics in the Present Time
Keywords:Education, Liberation, Epistemology, Dissidence, Sharing
The educational proposal to which these reflections arrive is to help our young people to elaborate interpretations on some fundamental issues for the existence of each one: freedom and knowledge, as moments of the educational process of liberation. Starting from the christian perspective. The inspiration to give substance to our work comes from here: «Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free» (John 8:32). We have decided to bring back the well-known Johannine phrase on the truth that makes you free, decisive in the formative field for every christian, because it is good to have in mind the context of that affirmation and, above all, those who expound it: Christ himself. In front of those who recognized him, he presented himself as the word, that of creation, of the Father: «... I do nothing on my own but speak just what the Father has taught me « (John 8;28). This is the knowledge that makes you free; therefore a theology that places freedom, or rather, its conquest through liberation, at the center of the investigation, remains worthy of attention over time, in its history and in the formative proposal of a new man, who must be redeemed from oppression. The epistemological framework on which the reflection is based is of a hermeneutic type, the methodology of analysis is qualitative.
