Dreams

October 31, 2013 on 4:33 am | In Dream Types | 3 Comments

Author, psychiatrist and scholar, painter, world traveler, and above all visionary dreamer, Carl Jung was one of the great figures of the twentieth century. A comprehensive compilation of his work on dreams, this popular book is without parallel. Skilfully weaving a narrative that encompasses all of his major themes – mysticism, religion, culture and symbolism – Jung brings a wealth of allusion to the collection. He identifies such issues as the filmic quality of some dreams, and the differences between ‘personal dreams’ – dreams that exist on the individual level – and ‘big dreams’ – dreams that we all experience, that come from the collective unconscious. Dreams provides the perfect introduction to his concepts to those unfamiliar with Jung’s work. Perfectly illuminating his user-friendly approach to life, Dreams is the ideal addition to any Jung collection.

  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.

  3. If you ever wanted to take a view into dream Psychology this is your text. This is an amazing text and I will not ruin the surprises inside its cover but its ability to bring to light the most prevalent of the West’s archetypes in the subconscious is astounding. This is for the avid dreamer who wishes to begin to understand what all of your dreams represent. Do not expect a kind of glossary for dream symbolism such text is worthless in our Global Village. Expect however a firm footing in the patterns prevalent in dream. If new to Jung read first.
