Tip: To use Pocket to save bookmarks to PEP-Web articles…

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

Pocket (formerly “Read-it-later”) is an excellent third-party plugin to browsers for saving bookmarks to PEP-Web pages, and categorizing them with tags.

To save a bookmark to a PEP-Web Article:

  • Use the plugin to “Save to Pocket”
  • The article referential information is stored in Pocket, but not the content. Basically, it is a Bookmark only system.
  • You can add tags to categorize the bookmark to the article or book section.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

Sándor Ferenczi

Budapest, January 25, 1917

Dear Professor,

Only now am I in a position to explain to you my long silence, perhaps also something about my strange behavior in other respects. All that was the emanation of a physical ailment. For some time I have been ascertaining in myself the appearance of irregular increases in temperature (up to 37.3-4°). Today I decided to have an X ray taken. It turned out that the apices of my lungs, the right one especially, are less transparent. Even with a stethoscope Dr. Lévy was able to confirm a “catarrh” on the right.

My great tendency toward fatigue, my weight loss thus find an explanation. Even the “Basedow” must have been a “pseudo-” or a secondary condition. The process must have been in existence for a long time (if I interpret my memories correctly).

Dr. Lévy disclaims the tubercular nature of the illness, but he is evidently doing that not as an internist but as a psychotherapist.

I am in telegraphic contact with the spas of the Tátra. Dr. Lévy is still advising a stay in the high mountains. But possibly I will visit you in Vienna before I go to the mountains.

Although we are planning to displace the border between the psychic and the physical downwards, we will in this case no doubt probably give preference to the physiological. Although, as you know, being ill as a motive for fidelity to Frau G. is also psychically significant.

I have found several of the books you recommended in the local library of natural science (also in the university library) and have borrowed some of them.
