PEP-Web Tip of the Day

Pocket (formerly “Read-it-later”) is an excellent third-party plugin to browsers for saving bookmarks to PEP-Web pages, and categorizing them with tags.

To save a bookmark to a PEP-Web Article:

  • Use the plugin to “Save to Pocket”
  • The article referential information is stored in Pocket, but not the content. Basically, it is a Bookmark only system.
  • You can add tags to categorize the bookmark to the article or book section.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

Exploding the Triangle? Psychoanalytic Observations on Incest. Juan Eduardo Tesone. Pp. 836-849

Marcia Cavell

After a brief review of the treatment of incest in the Bible, in mythology, and in anthropology, the author underlines the significance of the incest taboo for the symbolic organization of the family, in contradistinction to actual instances of incest and the destructive effect they have on oedipal triangulation and its structural implications. With reference to the father-seducer, the author delineates the psychology of incest. Incestuous fathers are characterized by a specific megalomanic form of narcissism which violates the limits of the object and displays a self-destructive quality vitiating the entire structural cohesion of the family.
