The Psychology of Dissection.
Shapiro, Kenneth J.
Science Teacher, v59 n7 p43 Oct 1992
Presents arguments against lab dissection in the science classroom. Author discusses adult negative memories associated with earlier school dissections. Asserts that, for the early adolescent, dissection may be mingled with messages pertaining to sex, excretion, identity, and privacy. Suggests that dissection arouses a feeling of "defilement": a developmentally early form of evil. (PR)
