Tip: To sort articles by Rankā€¦

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.

Primal Identity

Richard S. Caldwell


If, as Lichtenstein suggests, we are to regard human identity as emergent in the symbiotic relation of mother and child, we might then regard individuation, which ends this relationship in reality, as that which: (1) situates identity in a structure of subject and object, presence and absence, desire and prohibition; (2) temporally locates the origin of the unconscious and of unconscious fantasy; and (3) creates an infrastructure underlying subsequent psychosexual development, including the Oedipus complex.
