Here the sentence:
It has strong, if partial, analogies--family resemblances--with the screen memory, the dream, and the neurotic symptom: . . .
I'm not quite sure what "if" here means. Is it another way to say "if not" ? Thanks.
I am not a teacher.
No, if "if" actually meant "if not" the phrase would mean the analogies are not partial but they are strong.
I think it means "albeit". Though they are only partial, they are nevertheless strong...
