Explanation

This sentence is itself rife with ambiguity, so the best way to tackle it is to hunt down the most revealing clue words. Arguably the most important giveaway word in the whole two sentences is the word gospel, which is itself tricky because its primary definition has religious connotations.

In fact, a secondary definition of gospel is “accepted fact,” or “agreed-upon truth.” Another crucial word is tenet, which also signifies an “accepted principle.” Finally, the word even is an important pivot that informs you of the relationship between these words and the second blank, which is where you should start.

Even tells you that you should be surprised. You should be surprised that certain tenets that some might deem ______ are not accepted as
gospel. In other words, the blank should signify something crucial, or critical, to the general philosophy of psychoanalysis. Moving to the third blank, you see another “even,” once again indicating something contrary to expectation. You would expect the people very experienced in the field, or the most seasoned practitioners, to subscribe most strongly to the central tenets of the field.

Now return to the first blank. You learned in the second sentence that there is disagreement in the field, even between the most experienced practitioners, about the fundamental tenets of the practice of psychoanalysis. In other words, the field is subject to great debate, or rife with contention.


Rife with contention, critical, seasoned practitioners.
