Dream analysis is a distinctive and foundational part of analytical psychology, the school of psychology founded by C. G. Jung and his successors. This volume collects Jung’s most insightful contributions to the study of dreams and their meaning. The essays in this volume, written by Jung between 1909 and 1945, reveal Jung’s most essential views about dreaming–especially regarding the relationship between language and dream. Through these studies, Jung grew to understand that dreams are themselves a language, a language through which the soul communicates with the body. The essays included are “The Analysis of Dreams,” “On the Significance of Number Dreams,” “General Aspects of Dream Psychology,” “On the Nature of Dreams,” “The Practical Use of Dream Analysis,” and “Individual Dream Symbolism in Relation to Alchemy” (complete with illustrations).

New to this edition is a foreword by Sonu Shamdasani, Philemon Professor of Jung History at University College London.

  1. Dreams not only as wish fulfilment Carl Jung says he has analysed more than 2.000 dreams per year, a very impressive number by anyone’s standards. In his Dreams book, which a very good collection of many of his dreams experiments, he is after demolishing some Freudian’s dreams concepts, mainly the one which asserts that the purpose of dreams is to fulfill infantile sexual wishes repressed in the unconscious, which don’t find adequate outlet trough conscious activities.To add content to this dispute, one has only to have in mind that Jung was a very ardent disciple of Freud in the beginning of his career, but the relationship turned sour after 1914 in the figthing for prestige at the foundation of the Psychanalisys in the beginning of the 20th century.In Jung’s view, dreams are not only wish fulfillers, but they are also compensatory vis-a-vis our daily conscious life. So, the purpose of them is to balance our conscious and unconscious life. So, if life is good, dreams are bad and vice-versa. At the end of his life, Jung said in one of his testimonials that by means of a very representative dream he closed a circle, which meant he got a balanced mental life between unconscious and consciousness.
