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.

This paper, which is illustrated by a detailed case history of an officer in the Regular Army Reserve of Officers, sets out to demonstrate that war neurosis is not a speeific entity but rather the

precipitation of an already existing neurosis or psychosis. The necessity of resolving immediate traumatic war conflicts before the deeper causes of the illness can be understood is clearly shown. The paper is divided into five parts: (1) The war neurosis. (2) The tracing of the illness to its early foundations. (3) Illustrations of transference resistances. (4) Description of the more positive aspects of the transference. (5) A discussion on the psycho-pathology of the case. In this final section Dr. Berg discusses the conflict between the Oedipus and the inverted Oedipus situations and shows the problems arising from attempts to deal with unconscious homosexual phantasies in an environment consisting mainly of men.
