Tip: To see translations of Freud SE or GW…

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.

The Metaphorical, the Metonymical and the Psychotic Aspects of Obsessive Symptomatology Language Translation

Dana Amir

(Accepted for publication 22 June 2015)

This paper is an attempt to suggest an integrative formulation of obsessive symptomatology, based on the integration of Lacanian and object-relations points of view. This formulation manifests a singular interaction between three aspects of obsessive symptomatology, which I call “the metaphorical aspect,” “the metonymical aspect” and “the psychotic aspect,” and which are intertwined with a varying degree of dominance. The singular interaction between them has crucial influence on the capacity for symbolization and reflection, and therefore has immense implications concerning analytical work. The theoretical formulation will be followed by a detailed analytical illustration.
