This is not a statement. Please provide the full sentence. Also, the actual term you want translated should be the heading of the question. Frankly, there does not seem to be a problem with the bit you've quoted.

american novelist poe's statement
Explanation: identification means attribution to yourself (consciously or unconsciously) of the characteristics of another person (or group of persons)
Therefore it means that the 'reasoner' understands what the 'opponent' feels/thinks.
