DREAMS AND SYMBOLS by Leopold & Rollo May Caligor


Email this review


Twenty years ago, or even further back in Jungian times, this might have seemed a more relevant and significant contribution--an assessment of dreams as a medium of presenting to the individual his unconscious and symbolic life. Newer evidence is accumulating that the process of dreaming is a basic biological function of the organism and the content of the dream may be a phenomenon superimposed upon the basic biological need to dream. When considered as such, dreams become much less mystical and to a degree less precious than one would gather from the material presented here. A very serious reality is whether this study breaks any new ground or contributes significantly to the already voluminous existing literature.
