Freud in German means
(c) Sauteed lightly with olive oil
(d) "The young eagle, a rank impostor, fled the Reich."
(e) The same thing "it" means in English.

I would guess (e) because of the quote marks. My reasoning: It is obvious that Freud is greater than the sum of his disciples (d), and I would argue that(a) is archaic, and (b) is accurate only if one approves of Beethoven's translation of Schiller. So that leaves (c) and (e), and the former is too York 40s rather than New York today. The real question is whether "it" is (1) the id, (2) Freud as a proper noun, i.e. a signifier with surplus meaning, or (3) the universal pronoun.
