Hello,

"Warranted" in the sentence below (source: Becoming Freud, A. Phillips) seems to be meaning "justified". Please let me know what you think.

"In Freud’s view we are defensive creatures simply because
we have so much to defend ourselves against; our fears of the
external world are second only to our fears of the internal
world of memory and desire, and both are warranted."

Thanks a lot.
