Tip: To see translations of Freud SE or GW…

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:
Danielle Kaswin-Bonnefond

Anna Potamianou's concept of trauma is a dynamic one. Present at the origin of all psychic activity, trauma can re-emerge at any moment in the treatment, but whatever clinical forms it may take, Potamianou regards its destructive manifestations as expressions of a vital process with an inherent potential for reorganisation.

Potamianou draws together theories of psychic functioning, with its genesis and dysfunctions, as much from Freud as from contemporary psychoanalytic thought. Her two points of reference are constituted by the hallucinatory fulfilment of desire, that allows access to the registers of the pleasureunpleasure principle, and by the invasive and structuring traumatic lineage and its tonalities.
