Abstract

This essay considers some uses of Jacques Lacan's theory in art education. A comparison of Freud and Lacan's writings about art identifies some concepts suggested by them that are interwoven in art education. The review focuses primarily on Lacan's work and then on its use by jan jagodzinski and Dennis Atkinson. Their contributions illustrate the vitality of psychoanalysis for understanding the development of the subject in the aesthetic, cognitive, and social dimensions.
