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.

Lectures in Dynamic Psychiatry: Edited by Milton Kurian, M.D. and Morton H. Hand, M.D. New York: International Universities Press, Inc., 1963. 137 pp.

Review by:
James T. McLaughlin

From the clinical-pedagogic intent and survey nature of these nine lectures to the Brooklyn Psychiatric Society it is assumed that the reader will be the psychoanalytically oriented psychiatrist seeking further clarity and insight.

The chief lectures by Sandor Lorand on basic concepts of therapy suffer from the failure of the editors to recognize the validity of the dictum: 'the said, when read, is dead'. The literal transcription from tape leads in print to a lack of organization, wandering syntax, and the discursiveness and ambiguities that are inevitable in informal discourse. The lecturer's wealth of experience and technical competence, however, can with patience be retrieved. His psychotherapy is focused on the ego and his method an interactional-manipulative one. Excellent observations and specific advice regarding the gauging and handling of resistance, regression, and transference can be found among a profusion of not too useful generalizations and probably inescapable oversimplification of theoretical issues.
