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.

Winnicott Studies (1985) 1, edited by John Fielding and Alexander Newman, The Squiggle Foundation, 19 Chalcot Road, London NW1 8LL

Review by:
W. Ralph Layland

In the past two to three years there has been a plethora of psychoanalytic psychotherapeutic journals appearing on the British market. This review of the new journal of the Squiggle Foundation,Winnicott Studies, is in fact at the request of the editor of such a journal, which was only launched in 1984.

What does this mean? It means that the editors of all these new journals believe that there is an increasing need for more psychoanalytic psychotherapeutic literature; that they have something new to offer to the reader; and that they have a potential readership to which it will appeal. For anyone working full-time there is a limited number of hours each week that can be devoted to reading books and journals, so the competition is great and the editors need to bait their lines well to make a catch.

In their editorial John Fielding and Alexander Newman explain that the Squiggle Foundation came into being because there were many people from a variety of personal and professional backgrounds who wanted an opportunity to study the work of Donald Winnicott. It is inevitable and right that the Foundation should eventually wish to produce their own journal, but I am not quite sure what the identity of theWinnicot Studies is intended to be, nor am I sure if the editors themselves are.
