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.

War and the Dis-eases of Othering

Helene Moglen and Sheila Namir

This essay is concerned with ways in which primal psychic relations, socio-economic structures, and political imperatives have collaborated in the production of othering relations that have supported Bush's war on terror. Drawing on the psychoanalytic conception of the “third,” the authors identify alternative relational structures that can open up dehumanizing and hierarchical dyadic pairings. Finally, they consider how the events of Hurricane Katrina enabled journalists to occupy the space of the third and, therefore, to help in relational reconfigurations that grow out of the raising of consciousness and the acquisition of knowledge.
