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.

John J. Hartman

The author critically assesses the analogy, first made by Freud, between children and primitive peoples. He asserts that such similarities exist but not for the reason that Freud and most others believed. He argues that it is the enculturation of children in their middle-childhood years by other children that explains the resemblance between nonliterate peoples and the children of literate societies. His evidence derives in large part from his fieldwork with the Ilahita Arapesh of Papua New Guinea. He discusses the importance of middle childhood for the development of cultural values and morality.
