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.

Gabriel De La Vega

The authors describe the symbolic meanings of music in general, of singing, and of playing an instrument, the piano. These meanings range from 'good or bad breast' to 'a masturbatory act'; they include the primal scene, the oral-cannibalistic feast, and the destruction (with manic excitement) of the object imagoes. Music is also thought of as an 'ideal' object because 'it is always there' and does not frustrate or abandon: it is the 'ideal breast' or the 'mother's voice'. 'Of all creative work, perhaps it is in artistic work that the most primitive fantasies are found. And probably it is in music that we find the most archaic preverbal contents … [because] it is the most abstract and least tangible or material of arts.' Therefore it is the most suitable medium for expression of the infant-mother, preverbal relationships.
