not yet rated|write a review

Sigmund Freud once described the application of psychoanalysis to pedagogy as “the most important of all the activities of analysis.” In this exciting book, Cho takes up this activity. Examining the work of Jacques Lacan and Freud, he argues that a theory of pedagogy is already embedded within psychoanalysis. Psychopedagogy is the name given to this embedded theory. Through a discussion of key psychoanalytic concepts, such as, the unconscious, resistance, the ego, and transference, as well as a variety of other topics, Cho develops the contours of psychopedagogy.

Editorial Reviews

“In one of his famous dictums, Freud refers to (psycho)analysis, education, and politics as the three ‘impossible professions.’ Although taking place all around us, these professions are ridden and driven by an inherent impossibility or, to put it with Lacan, by a real that makes their theory and practice all the more intriguing and revealing. Yet in different and numerous attempts to think through the inherent connections between the three fields, educating somehow got much less conceptual and critical attention than the other two. This is just one of many reasons that makes Cho’s book so precious and indispensable. What makes it all the more valuable is that, far from being an attempt to simply ‘apply’ psychoanalysis to education, it really ventures to think through their inherent connections, proposing many a revealing and intriguing insight.”--Alenka Zupancic, Senior Research Fellow at the Institute of Philosophy, Slovene Academy of Sciences, Ljubljana.
