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.

über Drei Haupttypen der Religiösen Erlebnisformen und Ihre Psychologische Grundlage. Von Harald und Kristian Schjelderup. Berlin und Leipzig: Walter de Gruyter & Co., 1932. Pp. 108.

In this monograph the authors have given an account of the forms of religiosity with some interpretations of the reactions as encountered in several psychological studies. The first case described was an intelligent girl of twenty-three years, with a severe neurosis, characterized by anxiety, shifting body symptoms, depersonalizations, depressions and hallucinations. Religiously she was a “mystic,” showing the phenomenon known as “speaking in the tongue” The personal history of the girl, her reactions during the analysis, and her mystical experiences, including some drawings of her experiences are described in some detail, and special attention has been paid to the relationship between narcissism and “speaking in the tongue.” In this analysis the attitude toward God as a superior force, with associated feelings of anxiety and guilt and with impulses to atone and suffer, the desire for union with God, and the self-possession of this force were related to the father relationship, the mother relationship and the narcissistic-egocentric self relationship.

Ten other individuals with strong religious constellations and relationships were also studied. It was found that these cases according to their mental processes could be divided into three main groups.
