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.

Review from one of the Developing Groups

[Following the Journal's Conference in Prague, members of the Czech Developing Group have offered us the following review to convey their interest in the Jungian developmental approach.]

The memoirs of Michael Fordham are a gripping account of how he became a Jungian analyst of some standing, who made an important contribution in the sphere of his work. He is very open and straightforward in his recollections. They were alive once, and are alive now: real, and evidence of his personality. In the closing pages we discover that the memoirs were not originally intended for the public, that their aim was mainly psycho-therapeutic. When of advanced years, at a time when his second wife was threatened by illness, Fordham fell in love again. Eros is a mighty demon, and the author fell sick in body and soul. As an erudite analyst he decided to solve the situation through visits to a psychotherapist (he was 79 years old). On his suggestion he began to write an autobiography that helped him to deal not only with the conflict, but also with the ageing process.
