My own speculation is that Erikson’s ambivalence about his own Jewishness, his shame, guilt, and possible hatred of himself as a Jew are being expressed in these passages, just as is his ultimate rejection of Jewishness. The future theoretician of identity had difficulty in acknowledging and identifying with his own Jewish mother and Jewish stepfather, Homburger. Too cosmopolitan and sophisticated to become a ghetto Jew, he could not accept the uncertainties that resulted from “Jewish relativism” in the area of psychological knowledge and ethical values.

Freudian terminology has penetrated into everyday speech. Freud’s words have evolved into a universe of their own; his language has decisively shaped our conception of subjectivity, despite its uncertain destiny. Language was central in understanding Freud’s theoretical orientation; the repercussions of Freud’s words were vast for those engaged in therapeutic endeavors and in humanistic enterprises. Thus, how Freud was translated can largely determine how he was read and how his ideas were applied.
