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.

The Mind in Sleep: By R. F. Fortune, M.A. (Kegan Paul, Trench, Trübner & Co., London, 1927. Pp. 114. Price 5s.)

Review by:
E. J.

Among the many queer and devious routes by which Freud's discoveries are gradually being assimilated we are familiar with that in which a beginner misapprehends one of them, converts it into fresh language, and then proclaims it as an original discovery.

The publishers announce that 'this small but important volume takes the study of the analysis of dreams a step beyond that of Freud and Rivers'. The opening sentence in the book is 'My chief purpose in this little book is to reveal a hitherto unobserved mechanism of a certain class of dreams arising from mental conflict'. Full of expectation we then read, 'This class of dream may be roughly defined in terms first formulated by Graves: "when a person is in conflict between two selves, and one self is stronger than the other through waking life, the weaker side becomes victorious in the dream". It must be understood that this is a very special class of dream and that many dreams within this class can only be included by a loose interpretation of the term "victorious".
