In this conceptual article, the author considers two apparently contradictory dynamics in learning. First, the Winnicottian notion of the split-off intellect, in which individual subjectivity is skewed toward thinking and away from affect. Second, an inversion of the first notion, in which affect splits off to form the central domain of experience, relationship, and defense against difficulty.The author uses narratives from several contexts in her own educational history – a student-teaching experience, a graduate course in educational theory, and my work as a preservice teacher educator-to discuss these two notions.
