Pensar epistémico, educación popular e investigación participativa

This work is an intellectual testimony about three emblematic figures of Latin American critical thought: Orlando Fals Borda, Paulo Freire and Hugo Zemelman. Alfonso Torres Carrillo, Colombian popular educator, exposes his own interpretation, nurtured by the dialogue with these three thinkers, on the validity (and significance) of their critical proposals and social action. Thus, it resizes these three theoretical and methodological aspects in Latin America: epistemic thinking, popular education and the model of participatory research.
