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.
