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.

Some Developments in the History of the Concept of Narcissism

Ole Andkjær Olsen and Simo Køppe

This review distinguishes the following four categories of theories of narcissism: 1. Freud's own theory, put forward in an attempt to reach a more thorough understanding of the developmental stage where the psychoses are fixated (though his theory has also been used to shed light on the psychology of other subjects, for example, women and leaders); 2. Klein's and Lacan's extensions of Freud's theory, stressing the importance of object relations in narcissism; 3. the theories of ego psychology, centered on the self, for which narcissism no longer denotes a developmental stage, but refers to an independent sector of the personality; and 4. the use of the concept by socialization theoreticians in connection with their efforts to describe narcissism in women and adolescents.
