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.

Roundtable Discussion 2, March 31, 2007

Panelists Ronald Britton, Ph.D., Noah Feldman, JD, Ruth Stein, Ph.D. and Susan Tucker, JD

Moderated by:
Moderator Paola Mieli, Ph.D.

Paola Mieli: It is my pleasure to introduce our next panel: It includes Ruth Stein, psychoanalyst; Ron Britton, psychoanalyst; Susan Tucker, lawyer and head of the Justice program at the Soros Foundation; Noah Feldman, lawyer, Middle East specialist, and professor at NYU. We will continue to explore the question of the political manipulation of fear and paranoid anxiety.

We spent a great deal of time this morning defining the differences between anxiety, fear, paranoia. Ashis Nandy introduced the concept of the “politics of paranoia.” I hope that this afternoon we will be able to address specific social examples of this issue. Let's start asking in what way paranoid anxiety is manipulated by the media and in what way it influences our legislation.

Noah Feldman: I think it is appropriate that we held our theoretical academic discussion this morning at the university and now we are discussing politics here, in the Great Hall of the Cooper Union, which has been home to so many important moments in American history.

I want to suggest that the question of the relationship between media expressions and paranoid anxiety here is one that can be expressed well in terms of an economy of paranoia that is exchanged among different elites in different parts of the world, who are interpenetrated, but nevertheless, distinct.
