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.

Archives of General Psychiatry. I, 1959: Problems of 'Perception' and 'Communication' in Mental Illness. David McK. Rioch. Pp. 81-92.

In this Lasker lecture to the Institute for Psychosomatic and Psychiatric Training and Research of the Michael Reese Hospital, Rioch points out the interrelation between the patient and observer which determines perception and communication. These qualities cannot be differentiated because what an observer sees the patient as perceiving are inferences decoded from messages the patient sends. The therapeutic problem involved is illustrated by case material from hospitalized schizophrenic patients, in which the difficulty in understanding and reaching the patient is shown. The view is offered that regardless of what precipitates the state of disturbed consciousness, one has to recognize the significance of the symbolic behavior and interpret it to the patient in terms of the present and immediate situation that makes him feel isolated from life.
