PEP-Web Tip of the Day

When you hover your mouse over a paragraph of the Standard Edition (SE) long enough, the corresponding text from Gesammelte Werke slides from the bottom of the PEP-Web window, and vice versa.

If the slide up window bothers you, you can turn it off by checking the box “Turn off Translations” in the slide-up.  But if you’ve turned it off, how do you turn it back on?  The option to turn off the translations only is effective for the current session (it uses a stored cookie in your browser).  So the easiest way to turn it back on again is to close your browser (all open windows), and reopen it.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

As the circle slowly increased its number and expanded its agenda, it drew on both non-medical and medical professions. Members presented papers on the theory of psychoanalysis, on its application to cultural sciences, and, as their therapeutic experience grew, on case findings. In 1908, the group took the name "Psychoanalytic Society." Before the First World War, its official membership reached just over forty, but throughout the period from its founding to the war, fewer than half this number became active members. The society experienced its
