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.

On the Psychoanalytic Theory of Instinctual Drives—Ii: the Sexual Drives and the Ego Drives

Allan Compton, M.D.


This paper, the second in a series of four tracing the development of Freud's theory of instinctual drives, deals with the elaboration of the 1905 theory of sexuality, the introduction of ego drives contrasted with sexual drives, and the relation of drive theory to the topographic theory of the mental apparatus, as these issues were presented by Freud up to and including 1915.
