From Learning for Love to Love of Learning: Essays on Psychoanalysis and Education.
Ekstein, Rudolf; Motto, Rocco L.
In this collection of papers, the use of psychoanalytic techniques in the classroom for the development of children's personalities is discussed. The opening section on historical perspectives includes an account of past work in the field and a translation of Bernfield's classic "On Sexual Enlightenment." A section on curriculums focuses on the teaching-learning process and what this involves from a psychoanalytic perspective. The question of discipline is handled in a five paper section that stresses that discipline and punishment are not synonymous. While the purpose of the book is to encourage use of psychoanalytic theory in the classroom, the clear distinction between application of these techniques in normal education and formal therapy for the emotionally disturbed child is emphasized. The final section relates educational psychoanalytic tasks to the context of contemporary society. It investigates whether the techniques of this book can ever be initiated into the educational system. A bibliography accompanies each paper. (MH)
