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.

Nous nous quitterons, je te le promets

(We Will Leave Each other, I Promise You)

Danielle Kaswin-Bonnefond

The author speaks about the vicissitudes of analysis, for it is not a matter of the completion of a process, but of its appropriation, and of an evolution based on the psychic transformations that these processes have permitted. Given the timelessness of the unconscious, the analytic experience lies outside a beginning and an end and remains linked to the permanence of a drive dynamic with an openness towards new objects of cathexis.

To envisage the termination of an analysis, the elements of negative transference caught up in hate and the compulsion to repeat were the object of a work of elaboration implying the indispensable analysis of the analyst's countertransference affects. With Fabien, the author explores successively, the encounter, the work of the session, and the elaboration of hate caught up in the interweaving of the transference/countertransference.
