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.

Review by: Molly Tuby
When papers on the father by Andrew Samuels began to appear, many of us heaved a sigh of relief after years of struggling with (dare I say suffocating under?) a weighty over-emphasis on mother in developmental psychology. Father was neglected, Samuels writes, after having been the central figure in the early days of psychoanalysis.
In this rich and thought-provoking paper, the role of the father in gender identity is explored. The importance of incest is stressed by comparing the differing views of Freud and Jung, and by differentiating sharply between acted-out and containedincest, the latter seen as the root of closeness and love, whether in the family or in the transference/countertransference situation—not as unconscious longing for intrapsychic union. The cultural aspects of ‘the relation called father’ are opposed to the biological relation with mother.
Samuels's main concern is the crucial part played by the father in fostering fluidity of gender identity which, ideally, should be neither too certain, nor too confused, somewhere between the two, just a little mixed-up … a good safeguard against the stereotype of sexual normality. Erotic tension between father and daughter is of paramount importance: through the right sort of ‘play-back’, it frees the daughter from the conscious or unconsciousgender certainty that feminine equals mother, thus enabling her to follow other ways which are truly her own. Handled differently, this applies to the son too, but here the main issue at stake, apart from separation from mother, is transformation of aggression into spiritual values, brought about not by absolute victory but by ongoing process in the conflict between generations.
