Equality of Differences

The diversity of people is valued, identifying difference as a positive based on the value of equality. The plurality of the participants is considered to be positive, as the diversity of their previous experiences and scientific knowledge improves the quality of the gathering, eliminating prejudices and stigmas.

"Each participant is different from the others, does his or her own readings, and comes up with his or her own interpretations. The aim of reaching homogeneous opinions or assessments is explicitly rejected. On the contrary, the idea is to develop and maintain personal views on the world and on literature." (Flecha, 2000, p. 25)

"Dialogic learning is oriented towards equality of differences, affirming that true equality includes the very right to live in a different way. This perspective, which Freire calls “unity in diversity,” never criticizes limited forms of equality without defending others of more consequence. It never defends diversity without simultaneously proposing equality and fairness toward different people and groups." (Flecha, 2000, p. 22-23)
