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.

Review by:
Milton Viederman

This book is frequently intriguing in its elaboration and integration of ideas, but exasperating in its turgidity of style and, at times, in its content. This reader tended to reread the introduction periodically as he read the text in order to anchor himself in the basic intellectual structure of the book.

Although admiring of Freud as an innovative genius and creative thinker, Homans does to Freud what Freud did to humankind.
