Abstract: Today, the relationship with the word is hardly based on the decantation of expectancies. Instead, the reading of the word is kept under higher and higher pressure, demanding from the reader an immediate attitude of “devouring” as many texts as possible about several subjects even before the establishment of one’s own relation with what is susceptible of being read. Reflecting on this pressure that depletes the reading experience within the studies on Philosophy of Education, this work suggests the rereading of Paulo Freire’s The importance of the act of reading, written in the early 80’s, supported in the study of thinkers of the Critical Theory of Society, especially in Christoph Türcke’s work Excited Society: Philosophy of Sensation, written in the beginning of the 21st century. Focusing on the reading experience, this work highlights the reading of the word world as a relationship of closeness with the world, distant from the idea of exploitation and control, and discusses the response of many students of the said discipline who studied this text and associated the referred relation with exploitation. The insistence on this idea leads us to argue that under the pressure to say something, the students have few or no conditions to abdicate of the predatory impulse in the reading practice.
