Tip: To sort articles by Rank…

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.

Sándor Ferenczi

Dr. Ferenczi Sándor1
Budapest, December 21, 1920

Dear Professor,

This magnificent letter paper is naturally a remnant of the luxurious prewar times. I found two full boxes of it in an old desk, where it was left lying as a disdained gift; today they are again being honored.

I want to relate to you the further course of my indisposition.—After long hesitation I decided to look up, in addition to Lajos Lévy, another colleague, who is equally reliable but not prejudiced by amicable relations, and who would certainly, and did, tell me the truth. His—in regard to the heart, which was most suspect, very reassuring—information laid the main basis on the hypochondriacal part of the condition; there followed momentary psychic relief, which then also had a favorable secondary influence on the real condition of heart weakness. The neurotic part of the malady can be traced back to intestinal disturbances, which should, for their part, be interpreted as autoerotic compensation for the not completely satisfied libido. I have seen a whole series of similar cases originate (under the same conditions).
