This essay explores the "unconscious" meaning of the metaphors in which psychoanalytic theory is stated. In other words, the psychoanalytic method of interpretation is turned back on the theory itself. Considered are Freud's theories of sexuality, pleasure-unpleasure, masculinity-femininity and the metapsychology. The roots of these theories are located in Freud's intellectual "childhood" in a nineteenth"",century system of values and traced from that source through major portions of his later work.
