Which may be summarized as changes in the normal distribution over the nervous system of the stable amounts of excitation (49). 36 CHAPTER FOUR In other words, the functional disorders of the nervous system characteristic of hysteria influence the mind as well as the body. We encounter many of the same confusions in a later paper on Freud's purported psycho-physical interactionism (Silverstein, 1989). He writes, for example, that It was Freud's dualistic interactionism which allowed him to the develop the idea of "conversion" in explaining hysteria, the concept that psychical conflicts could be symbolically represented in motor or sensory manifestations (1093).
We are thus left with Andersson's claim. However, Solms and Saling raise an objection against it, which requires consideration. 33 This passage can be interpreted in several different ways. Solms and Saling seem to take Freud to be asserting that material processes in one's central nervous system do not determine whether one is conscious or unconscious of a 'corresponding' mental token occurring in one's mind. In other words, they take Freud to be claiming that it is something outside the central nervous system that determines this.
This is particularly evident in the case of the crucial concluding ~en~nce. Whereas the Standard Edition says that psychoanalysis 'explains the supposedly somatic concomitant phenomena as being what is truly psychical', which might be read as stating that 'those phenomena alleged by others to be somatic have been shown by psychoanalysis to be truly psychical rather than somatic', the fresh translation states: 'Psychoanalysis believes the alleged somatic accompanying processes to be the real psychic ones' thus claiming a relation of identity between somatic and mental events.
