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.

James F. Bing

Maguire states that the leap from Newtonian physics to the quantum theory is analogous to that from traditional psychoanalysis to Kohut's theories. On the one hand, he says in several places that Kohut's emphasis on the analysis of the self does not in any way eliminate the classical oedipal orientation, but that they are complementary. On the other hand, the concept of the "supraordinated" position of the self is paramount. The author cites Kohut's stress on the importance of being aware of "the perspective of the patient's total self experience," as though Freud's orientation leaves out this consideration. To make his case in one instance, he speaks pejoratively about the "destruction of the Oedipus complex" as compared to self psychology in which the growth-promoting factors are emphasized. Thus he writes of two psychologies which may exist in complementary relationship, but he clearly subordinates the classical position to that of the position of self psychology.
