ABOUT THE BOOK

If you've ever woken at dawn (or, ahem, 3am) to scribble wildly in a dream journal, convinced that you've just written the world's most heartbreaking poem or unlocked the secret of perpetual motion, you know how powerfully real your night visions can seem. If by lunchtime that day, however, you realize what you've written is not only drivel but completely incomprehensible, you are not alone.

But take heart: your dreams are not only entertaining (or utterly terrifying), they are vital to your psychological health. Dreams allow us to process traumas, prepare ourselves mentally for tasks, reveal our buried wishes and loves and loathings. Reading Dream Psychology and maybe even Freud's The Interpretation of Dreams (if you're feeling adventurous) can validate the importance of our dreams to our entire mental well-being. While not all of us may have access to a psychoanalyst, we can all trace patterns in our dreams if we are diligent about making a record of them. And if we can find a generous listener, we can express our thoughts about our dreams and incorporate the other person's insights into our idea of ourselves.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK

Dream Psychology leads the reader through the important aspects of dream interpretation. In the first chapter, Freud makes the argument that dreams do mean something. They are not just trivial, as other philosophers have said. Even when ancient religions tried to explain dreams by creating myths featuring divine beings, they still understood that dreams could tell the dreamer something important about themselves or their environment.

Freud demonstrates this hypothesis by investigating a dream of his own, which seems insignificant at first. Upon examination, the dream reveals to Freud some aspects of his waking life that have been troubling him. It is important to note that while Freud does assign a few key one-to-one replacements of a dream image with a waking one, i.e., “the King or Queen symbolizes the parent,” the process of dream interpretation is much subtler than a “dream dictionary” would have one believe. It requires the dreamer to talk about the dream with an analyst, who then looks for connections between the conscious and the unconscious. The symbols only direct the dreamer and the interpreter toward more associations; they do not mark the end of the interpretation.
