N.22 - The Ordering Function of Thought in Folktales

On the uses of the folk-tale in education

Abstract

More than thirty years of work as a child psychiatrist and analyst and weekly meetings with the teachers of psychotic children in my care, have led me to reflect upon the process of learning to read and the apparent lack of interest in books and reading amongst certain social groups. It is clearly the case that our consumer society favours information in the form of quick, screen-based images to the detriment of traditional reading.
