Tip: To sort articles by Rankā€¦

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

You can specify Rank as the sort order when searching (it’s the default) which will put the articles which best matched your search on the top, and the complete results in descending relevance to your search. This feature is useful for finding the most important articles on a specific topic.

You can also change the sort order of results by selecting rank at the top of the search results pane after you perform a search. Note that rank order after a search only ranks up to 1000 maximum results that were returned; specifying rank in the search dialog ranks all possibilities before choosing the final 1000 (or less) to return.

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

International Journal of Psychoanalysis. XL, 1959: The Problem of the Identical Twin as Reflected in a Masochistic Compulsion to Cheat. Pierre Lacombe. Pp. 6-12.

Lacombe describes the successful analysis of a forty-one-year-old male identical twin affected by a severe obsessional neurosis with a masochistic compulsion to cheat. His childhood relation to his twin was marked by intense preoedipal ambivalence due to sibling envy. His twin brother was treated as the baby, being some thirty-three minutes younger. On the Oedipal level he was envious of the father from whom he wanted the Oedipal mother. His preoedipal conflicts were used as a defense against Oedipal strivings. He cheated father and brother in his transference relationships as he felt they had cheated him in childhood. His sense of unity with his twin led to conflicts of ego identity since he sought to free himself from this bond, yet felt incomplete without it. The author used a successful parameter in this therapy. He gave sessions of two hours duration, for the patient felt cheated in the usual one-hour session since unconsciously half of it belonged to his brother. He retaliated by keeping material from the analyst. The two-hour session made him feel as if he were receiving his just due.
