The clarity and definitiveness of Freud’s writings in English camouflage the contradictions and ambiguities of the German original. The Standard Edition obscures the spirit as well as the content of Freud’s ideas by transforming what is essentially a human science (a branch of knowledge much closer to hermeneutical-spiritual knowing) into something that approximates natural science.
