Psychoanalytic Electronic Publishing (PEP)

The PEP Consolidated Psychoanalytic Glossary is a compilation of terms, definitions, and discussion from major published psychoanalytic glossaries. With the glossary, PEP has integrated several of the key Psychoanalytic glossaries into a new document. In this initial implementation, in addition to the Language of Psychoanalysis (Laplanche and Pontalis), PEP has integrated three additional glossaries: the Edinburgh International Encyclopaedia of Psychoanalysis (Skelton), Glossary of Psychoanalytic Terms and Concepts (Moore and Fine), and the Dictionary of Kleinian Thought (Hinshelwood). PEP has also integrated the EPF Glossary of Psychoanalysis in Europe (Junkers), which provides a mapping of each psychoanalytic term across several languages. See the PEP Consolidated Glossary Introduction for more info.

Terms from the glossary are hyperlinked from within articles in PEP. As you move your cursor over the text in any article terms will change color. A simple click brings up a pop-up window with the definitions and discussion from each of the glossaries together, providing a brief definition from the glossary sources in a single consolidated view. You can also click to open the complete consolidated glossary entry which has the complete content from all the sources.

The Glossary can be browsed directly by selecting PEP Consolidated Psychoanalytic Glossary from the “Glossaries and Dictionaries:” list in the Books Tab.
