  • Summary of other dream theorists. The focus of the book was on the second and third theory.
  • Under this theory, human beings would not dream if these internal and external disturbances did not occur while sleeping.
  • These “facts” are debatable in my opinion. Does this mean that dream content contains repressed feelings. To expand on this theory further, humans do not dream of traumatic events in their lives until other events start to over shadow them.
  • Expanding on this further, dreaming can be considered the way in which the humans heal the sore spots in their minds. Is the implication that the content of dreams indicative of the dreamers internal character?
  • A example of this would be the dreamer finding money in the street. The dreamers mind then adds the action of picking up the money.

  • 3 theories of dreams
    • A person’s psychological functioning changes during sleep, but otherwise remains entirely intact.
    • A lessening of psychological activity while sleeping, what is left is material for dreams.
    • Dreams are reserved for “special” psychological activity which can not be totally accessed while awake.
  • All Psychological Functioning remains intact while sleeping
    Flawed theory
    Would this be the case when psychological functioning is placed in a condition to which it is not adapted (i.e. sleep).
  • A lessening of psychological activity while sleeping.
    Dream material comes to the dreamer while sleeping.
    Dreams are reactions to slight sleep disturbances, from both within and from outside of the dreamer.

    • Issues that have been fully resolved never appear in dreams.
    • Dream content are usually waking events that have not attained adequate recognition on the part of the dreamer.
  • A lessening of psychological activity while sleeping.
    • Dreams are a psychological reaction of these events that reach the conscious level while sleeping.
    • These events affected the dreamers senses more than they affected their minds.
    • The less that these events affect the dreamers consciousness, but the more it affected the senses, the more likely it is that it will become dream material.
  • A lessening of psychological activity while sleeping.
    If we could not dream we would all become mentally disturbed due to the large amount of unsolved thought bouncing around in our minds.
  • Dreams are reserved for psychological activity which can not be accessed while awake.
    Dreams are “free play” of the mind.
    Dreams are the way in which the mind refreshes itself.
    Dreams are a defense against the commonality of waking life.
  • Dreams are reserved for psychological activity which can not be accessed while awake.
    Dreams are free of all reality, but uses material from the dreamers waking life.
    The dream expresses itself in visual images, not the thoughts or actions of waking life.
  • Dreams are reserved for psychological activity which can not be accessed while awake.
    However, dreams do not stop at the visual images. The dreamers thoughts give rise to actions in dreams.
