Although every patient has his or her own “idiosyncrative narrative,” any clinician will recognize regularities or “master narratives” in the particular story and dynamics of a patient. To deny this, and to act as if we approach each new patient as a tabula rasa, would be naïve. (p. 581) They conceive that these regularities or master narratives arise intrinsically and independently from the patient’s mind, not shaped by or influenced by the analyst, an immaculate creation.

Ricoeur attempts to prove that the dichotomy of energetics and hermeneutics dominates Freud’s entire oeuvre—from the “Project for a Scientific Psychology” (1895) right to the “Outline of Psychoanalysis” (1940a).
