Freud's theory of the connection between consciousness and its objects is thus mechanical rather than humanly meaningful. "Cathexis" is a concept implying the amount of psychical energy attached to an object, an idea or ideas, or a body part. Freud believes that this energy is at least theoretically measurable, that it can be condensed or displaced from its original objects to others, and that it explains such things as mourning or self-preoccupation. In mourning, the subject has withdrawn psychical energy from the outside world, hypercathecting the fantasied lost love object instead (Freud, 1917).
As Frank J. Sulloway (1979) points out, the Project was an early attempt at physical (neurophysiological) reductionism. In his later work, Freud, as a "biologist of the mind," leans more toward biological and evolutionary reductionism—though he never abandons the neurophysiological principle of constancy upon which all of his later work rests. As Sulloway's monumental intellectual biography convincingly ar gues, the Project is not, as some Freud scholars have insisted, merely an early neurological document which was abandoned by its author shortly after be ing written in favor of a theory of the mind which was purely psychological.
For Freud, everything is part of a unified system. The eco nomic hypothesis (energy flow, inhibition, and displacement in the psyche) is the most experience-distant part of Freud's theory; yet it lies behind the topographical hypothesis (conscious, unconscious, and preconscious areas of the psyche), the dynamic hypothesis (psyche explained by opposing men tal forces), and the structural hypothesis (ego, superego, and id). The eco nomic hypothesis is, in a sense, the engine that makes the Freudian machine go.
