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.

Psychiatric Quarterly. XXXIII, 1959: The Dying. Daniel Cappon. Pp. 466-489.

In his study of the relation between fantasy and bodily illness, carried out on general hospital patients where he attempted to obtain fantasy material 'at sleep and waking levels of awareness', Cappon compared material from nineteen patients who died in the course of the illness with that from another eighty-eight patients. His data suggest that no personality change took place in the period of dying, the ego defenses were usually overwhelmed, and the experience of dreaming ceased or went unreported. The majority of patients wanted to die or, at least, not to live. Their forebodings, often numerous, depending on the state of awareness, tended to increase with the preconscious perception of body dysfunctions occurring in dreams. Cappon applies these suggestions to what the physician may tell the dying about themselves and their condition.
