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.

Review by:
M. A. Meyer

One of the flood of books dealing with the psycho-analytic approach to the conduct disorders of childhood that has been poured out of American presses since the subject of child guidance has attained its present vogue. Text-books of this class possess all too frequently not enough of the scientific self-criticism exemplified by Jones's Some Problems of Adolescence, and the calm conservatism shown in Freud's Geleitwort to Aichhorn's Verwahrloste Jugend. Mr. Pierce's work is, in our opinion, an average specimen of its class. It has apparently been written for the benefit of perplexed educators and puzzled parents.
