Abstract

Searching for contexts that may better explain Bettelheim's essay, the author explores the relationship between North-American and European museology on one side, and between anthropology and psychoanalysis on the other. The main target of Bettelheim's criticism seem to be realism in educational practices and cognitive hegemony in American "child museums". His emphasis on the need for doubt, especially in child experience, is based on a blend of anthropological and psychoanalytic thinking which is a major inspiration for the today's re-enchantment of the world.
