    Can I replace 'that' with of?

    Schopenhauer theorized that individuals seek partners who share certain interests and tastes, while at the same time looking for a "complement" or completing of themselves in a partner, as in the cliché (that) "opposites attract".

    Thanks!

    If you mean the first "that" -- no. If you mean the second "that" -- no, but "that" is not needed there.
