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.

M. N. Searl

Dr. Sterba reminds us that in a transference situation the ego of the patient may be drawn in two different and actually antithetical directions at the same time, i.e. instinctual gratification and defence. The normal basis of such a division of the ego is its capacity to regard itself objectively. This division, says Dr. Sterba, is on the model of super-ego formation; it differs from this in not being a stage in ego-formation, but taking place subsequently in the mature ego. The analyst's interpretations of the transference situations should bring about an identification of part of the ego with the analyst for reality ends, giving ability to regard objectively and to deal with the other division of the ego between instinctual gratification and defence. The synthetic function of the ego can then have its full value.
