PEP-Web Tip of the Day

Pocket (formerly “Read-it-later”) is an excellent third-party plugin to browsers for saving bookmarks to PEP-Web pages, and categorizing them with tags.

To save a bookmark to a PEP-Web Article:

  • Use the plugin to “Save to Pocket”
  • The article referential information is stored in Pocket, but not the content. Basically, it is a Bookmark only system.
  • You can add tags to categorize the bookmark to the article or book section.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

Some Comments on the Distribution of Narcissistic and Object Libido in the Aged

Sidney Levin


In summary, it is suggested that normal ageing is dependent to a considerable degree upon the capacity to redistribute libido to new objects and new aims. Such redistributions typically include some withdrawal of narcissistic libido from the ego ideal and a redirecting of this libido to other forms of narcissistic satisfaction. Although object-libidinal needs may become increasingly aim-inhibited in old age, they nevertheless persist. As is true in other age groups, only a limited amount of object libido can be successfully redistributed to narcissistic forms of satisfaction. When loss of objects occurs, therefore, a redistribution of libido to other objects is necessary if emotional disturbances are to be avoided.
