2. A New Mother

Slice ePub May 27, 2014
<p>2</p><p> A New Mother </p><p>A year passed. Dr. Bayley felt his three little girls needed a mother to look after them. He met Amelia Charlotte Barclay, and soon they were married.</p><p>“Come now, give your new mother a kiss,” Dr. Bayley coaxed. Mary and Elizabeth solemnly obeyed. Baby Catherine cooed. But somehow, things were different. An icy feeling separated the girls from their new mother. They never called Amelia “Mommy.” Instead she was “Mrs. Bayley.”</p><p>When Elizabeth was four, Catherine, or “Kit,” as everyone called her, died. Elizabeth sat by herself on the doorstep while the grown-ups gathered inside for the funeral. She looked up at the clouds. “How beautiful it must be in heaven,” she imagined. The thought made her smile. Just then her Uncle William slipped outside. He sat down beside Elizabeth.</p><p>“Betty, didn’t you cry when your baby sister Kitty died?” he asked softly.</p><p>Elizabeth shook her head. “No, Uncle William.”</p><p>“Why not?”</p><p>“Because Kitty is gone up to heaven. I wish I could go, too, and be with Mama and Kit.”</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/403781-saint-elizabeth-ann-seton">See more</a>

Introduction to “On Narcissism”

Slice ePub May 23, 2014
<p>NIKOLAAS TREURNIET</p><p> <b>INTRODUCTION TO AN INTRODUCTION</b> </p><p>It is difficult to understand Freud’s work without some idea of the scientific concepts on which he based his models. The physiologist Helmholtz had discovered that the laws of the conservation of energy apply to living organisms as well as to inorganic matter. Freud adopted Fechner’s constancy principle as a physiological analogue to Helmholtz’s discovery that the psychic apparatus tends to keep the quantity of excitation at the lowest possible level. The principle of constancy called for the discharge of quantities of energy if they became too large, as in the case of accumulated or “dammed-up” excitation from the outside (first phase) or the inside (second phase). Affects and impulses were conceived of as moving in a system of communicating vessels, a theory of affective and libidinal hydraulics.</p><p>Biology in the period of Freud’s intellectual development was heavily weighted in favor of “purity” in laboratory experiments, in which the object of investigation was isolated as completely as possible and environmental conditions were assumed to be constant. There was as yet no appreciation of the dynamic relationships between the organism and the environment. Another precondition for understanding the development of Freud’s thinking is acknowledgment of his indifference to the rules of semantics. He used language according to his needs, as an artist uses his materials. Precise use of a term had little meaning for Freud; it was the context that mattered. It is thus essential for those who wish to master the subject to tolerate the ambiguities rather than try to eliminate them.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/299720-freud-s-on-narcissism-an-introduction">See more</a>

Share via Back to My Mac

Slice ePub May 27, 2014
<p>Back to My Mac is one of the most powerful remote-services features ever built into in an operating system. Introduced in Leopard, Back to My Mac letsyou easily connect two computers, even ones separated by the Internet and intermediate network hardware, and then share files ora screen between them without entering additional passwords. </p><p>In this book and chapter, I focus just on screen sharing. But Back toMy Mac can be used for any Bonjour service, like remote administration of an AirPort base station with the MobileMe version of Back to My Mac, although most other services are too obscure for most people.</p><p>Back to My Mac requires an active iCloud or MobileMe account.</p><p>Back to My Mac uses either iCloud or MobileMe as glue to bind together different Macs on the Internet. To use it, you must set up eachMac with the same iCloud or MobileMe account. Then, each computer uses the service to store connection information where the other Macs can access it.</p><p>Heres the how the service works:</p><p>The router: If the computer is connected to the Internet via a router that assigns network addresses, Back to My Mac asks the router for configuration information. There are requirements for how the router and your network are configured, but most setups should meet those. If you cant get Back to My Mac to work, see Back to My Mac Connection Problems.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/362983-take-control-of-screen-sharing-in-lion">See more</a>
