This article proposes to view Freire’s thinking as a model or even paradigm of communication, development, and social change. To build this as an original argument, we firstly outline Freire’s ontological call, presenting and discussing his underlying five principles. Secondly, we trace Freire’s legacy by presenting and discussing how Freire inspired three significant Ibero-American thinkers, Augusto Boal, Juan Díaz Bordenave, and Boaventura de Sousa Santos. Finally, we deepen our analysis of Freire’s vision of communication, development, and social change, unpacking how he navigates between a normative vision grounded in a utopian aspiration for change, and a very systematic and rigorous methodology, his liberating pedagogy.
