He writes, “As I see it, the whole problem of the Freudian epistemology may be centralized in a single question: How can the economic explanation be involved in an interpretation dealing with meanings; and conversely, how can interpretation be an aspect of the economic explanation?

In due course Kant made Descartes’s distinction between matter and mind the basis of his own influential system of philosophy.

If you like, he deconstructs the idea of purpose into that of drive, and then uses drives to reconstruct unconscious meaning. This is why “energetics” and interpretation go together in his work; they are inseparable. However, because Freud does not accept the Kantian categorization of purpose as a nonnatural one, he has no difficulty in regarding his interpretive theory as a development within, rather than without, natural science. In psychoanalysis, to interpret human life, to study its meanings, we consider the purposes of human life.
