absurd intellectual

In our interpretation of intellectual thus far we have come upon the element of absurdity in the intellectual-content so often that we must no longer postpone an investigation of its cause and significance. We remember, of course, that the absurd intellectual has furnished the opponents of intellectual investigation with their chief argument for considering the dream nothing but the meaningless product of a reduced and fragmentary activity of the mind.The appearance of it has been caused only by the fact that a perfectly permissible mode of speech – in the case of which we are accustomed to ignore the absurdity that happens to exist between its parts – has been faithfully represented in the intellectual.
