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.

D. B.

By the term 'empathic index' the author understands the answer a person gives to his question: What personage from history or legend do you admire most, or whom would you consider your ideal? The answer, he says, definitely shows the trend of the person's adjustment to the world.

The mechanism of the 'empathic index' he bases on the process of identification.

The author's view that the transference mechanism is only a finer form of identification and depends altogether on it is not in accordance with the psycho-analytic theory of transference.

The author's final remark that 'one can truly say, "Tell me your empathic index and I will tell you who you are"' is far too sweeping. This 'empathic index' can only give at the most a hint in a certain direction and no more. Dr. Brill apparently lays far too much stress on its value.
