Eros, The New Narcissus, and Facilitating Self-Appreciation.
Tjarks, Larry D.
The eroticism which is often present in the classroom has potential creative or destructive power, while the creative use of eroticism depends on the acknowledgement that eroticism exists in some teacher-student relationships, the destructive effect of this eroticism--the denial of its existence--can be feelings of rejection (as seen in "Up the Down Staircase"). Self-acceptance and self-appreciation of eroticism (the new Narcissus) stimulates students' minds and leads to the freedom to appreciate their achievements. (JM)
