This article deals with the problem of evil and desire, and their repercussions en the area of education. Thinking about education by way of a psychoanalytical base implies acceptance of one's lack, one's unconsciousness, and ones errors, aberrations, mistakes and principally one's multiple possibilities of meaning with respect to the signs in one's environment. The condition of desire cannot be universalized, but it can be understood. The devil appears, as resistance and desire, as counterpoint toward good and the moral silencer of means of existence. We propose an opening of thought and dialogue along these lines.
