In this groundbreaking work, Sigmund Freud explores why we dream, what we dream about, and what dreams really mean.

Between 1915 and 1917, Sigmund Freud delivered a series of well-received lectures at the University of Vienna on his theories of psychoanalysis. Nine of them focused on Freud’s theories about dreams—what they are and what they mean. The content of these lectures are presented in Dreams.

Freud covered a lot of ground in his lectures, focusing first on the general difficulties involved in studying dreams, then on the many aspects of dream interpretation, specific symbols and examples of dreams, and the dream as a wish-fulfillment. Finally, he addresses the doubts and criticisms commonly expressed about his theories.

    " Some of his ideas seem to miss the mark. But he deserves tremendous credit for paving the way for psychological analysis of the unconscious during sleep. He believed mainly in wish-fulfillment as the sole and only purpose of dreams, however I personally believe it to be only a fraction of the true meaning of dreams. Great read for anyone interested in Psych. "

    " While I don't believe in his theories generally, I picked a copy for $6 at Indigo; I do believe *some* people are influencing their dreams in this manner and read it from a purely academic/philosophical perspective. "

Sigmund Freud (1856–1939) was an Austrian psychiatrist who founded the psychoanalytic school of psychology.
