Freire uses the word praxis to make a point that we are just followers of an “accepted custom.” We are no longer individuals that can think, learn, and feel all on our own. We fall into that once again, preconformed complex, where we are guided and directed into almost everything that we do. Alienation can result in an education setting becasue it makes humans feel like they are empty, and merely ready to consume “useless’ information. This would be a perfect description for a class room setting in which the teacher belittles the student, a fills that student with some would say meaningless information. We are thought of as hollow objects, sitting around waiting for the Subject to take control.
