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.

The authors hint that anatomical changes may actually result from analysis and discuss the possibility of relating analytic concepts to anatomy and neurology. They suggest that one hemisphere may not know what is happening in the other, which may be related to disavowal and repression. Repression is the blocking of the past

from one hemisphere to the other. The authors discuss the evolutional significance of bicamerality. Civilization and meaning can become possible only after a certain degree of development of the brain's bicameral structure. According to Lashley, "a complex organization held together by interaction of processes has no distinguishing feature other than its organization," and the authors state that this is what they have been trying to show in their own words. They believe that analyzability is definitely related to the plasticity of the brain; the analyst, they suggest, functions effectively by linking the two hemispheres. Perhaps the authors' most useful contribution is the attempt to correlate neurological and psychoanalytic data, which may enable us to further understand personality structure.
