Tip: To see translations of Freud SE or GW…

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.

Gustav Bychowski a Memorial Issue: An Appreciation

Jan Ehrenwald, M.D.

Editorial Note

We are including two papers by Gustav Bychowski. “Marcel Proust and his Mother” was composed shortly before his death. “Marcel Proust as Poet of Psychoanalysis” was written some forty years earlier, in 1930.

Our Spring 1972 issue (Vol. 29, No. 1) contains a statement of Bychowski's relation and contribution to American Imago and to The Association For Applied Psychoanalysis.

Dying was out of character with Gustav Bychowski. He lived with the zest of a gourmet savoring a sumptuous meal and enjoying it to the last remnant. He loved people, the arts, letters, nature and enjoyed sights with the innocence of a novice, yet with the know-how and discrimination of the connoisseur. He traveled widely and was at home in many countries and cultures. His mind was open to things both old and new, to the heritage handed down to him by his elders and to the intellectual ferment stirring in the new generation. Nor was his love of life unrequited. Born in 1895 with a silver spoon in his mouth, the son of a prominent Warsaw neurologist, he had the advantage of an affluent and cultured home, and of the opportunities opened up to him by the growing emancipation of at least a select group of Jews in his native Poland. For Gustav Bychowski, it was the same auspicious beginning as for a preceding generation of Jewish intellectuals which brought Sigmund Freud and a whole galaxy of Jewish scientists and medical men to prominence in the old Austro-Hungarian monarchy.
