For a greater part of its history it has been assumed that a psycho-analytic interpretation had as its function the rendering conscious of that which is unconscious. The relatively simple division of elements into conscious and unconscious has proved extremely fruitful, but it no longer provides a satisfactory criterion of an interpretation to regard it as either making or failing to make that which is unconscious conscious. The patient whose transformations are effected in the medium of hallucinosis might almost have as his motto “actions speak louder than words” with its hint of rivalry as an essential feature of the relationship. Rivalry is an important element but its significance depends on the particular constant conjunction or configuration of which it is a part. “Rivalry” signifies a constant conjunction but the constant conjunction it signifies is not the relevant one in this context.
