Britzman (2011) in Freud and Education gives a compelling and comparative examination of the two impossible fields of practice – teaching and psychoanalysing. Lacan in Seminar II states: “...there is no true teaching other than the teaching which succeeds in provoking in those who listen an insistence – this desire to know which can only emerge when they themselves have taken the measure of ignorance as such – of ignorance inasmuch as it is, as such, fertile – in the one who teaches”. From the statement we can presume that transference has much to do with the desire to teach and learn. We might also say that teaching and learning are one and the same. Still focusing on the art of managing transference and countertransference, this work centres on the power dynamics of knowledge production and learning as positions of privilege and how positive shifts into dialectic positions of knowing can become opportunities to bridge gaps of difference in the educational situation.
