Dream after a Century: Symposium 2000 on Dreamsby Melvin R. Lansky (Editor)
There is a plurality of views in psychoanalysis today, and at best, such diversity reflects a freedom from domination by any one school of thought, a freedom that respects different approaches, allowing them to flourish and develop. This plurality is well represented in the papers in this volume, which were presented at Symposium 2000 "The Dream After a Century," and take a wide range of stands towards the status of the dream. They are first and foremost clinical papers, each of which illustrates the author's technical stance toward dreams in the context of that author's own clinical evidence. The choices in the handling of the dream made by each clinician, reveal, implicitly or explicitly, the position that clinician takes toward theory and its relation to clinical work. The present format allows the reader access to what distinguished practitioners of different psychoanalytic persuasions actually do, and also allows for interchange between the authors themselves and the audience at the Symposium about the implications of their presentations.
