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.

The Origin of the Symbiotic Wish

Thomas M. Horner, Ph.D.

The psychoanalytic concept of symbiosis needs to be revised in order to accommodate advances in self psychological theory, findings of developmental psychology, and the longstanding impetus in psychoanalysis to be biologically relevant. This article addresses symbiosis from an integrated physical and social biological perspective, and posits the formation of the symbiotic wish as the essential subjective condition driving the organism to seek object relationships.
