Freire distinguished three degrees of political understanding: "magical consciousness, naive consciousness, and critical consciousness" in what he called the "archaeology of consciousness." It was the responsibility of the instructor to promote a discussion and emancipation movement that would help people develop heightened awareness. Thus, we can clearly see the connection between Freire's work and the notion of independence that is so essential to social work.
