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 psychiatrist's fundamental purpose is to enable the patient to adapt himself to the cultural pattern in which he lives. The individual must be helped to achieve an acceptable solution of the constant struggle between his conscience, derived from parental attitudes, his self-interest, and the impacts made upon him by his associates. The psychiatrist himself finds it difficult to avoid accepting norms that have moralistic values rooted in the culture. Actually, both patients and physicians tend to select each other on the basis of common elements in their background. Therapeutic efficacy is to be measured not in terms of theory but by the practical outcome within the range of the contemporary ideal.
