The Hypotheses Quotient
After reading the critical comments by Dr. Brandt, Dr. Ettin, and Dr. Schaeffer, I deeply regret that I selected two of Freud’s theories for the demonstration of the calculation of the Hypotheses Quotient (HQ), because I think that almost all the critical remarks are related to the example (Freud) and not to the general problems of the HQ. Therefore, I shall divide my reply into two parts: (1) the HQ in general and (2) the HQ of Freud’s theories.
