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.

'Not the least of Jung's services to his time was his demonstration of how the dreaming process in man, far from being archaic and redundant, was more relevant than ever.' - Laurens van der PostFrom the Back Cover:
'He taught himself and men how to read the language of dreams as if they were the forgotten language of the gods themselves.' - Laurens van der Post
What happens when we dream? What do dreams mean? Can we learn anything from them? In answering such questions the visionary thinker Carl Gustav Jung revolutionized our understanding of dreams and their significance. Jung - who claimed to analyse around 2,000 dreams a year - believed that attending to our dreams is vital if we are to attend to our true selves. 'Because dreams are the most common and most normal expression of the unconscious psyche,' he argued, 'they provide the bulk of the material for its investigation.' From his 1909 guide to dream analysis to his detailed advice on dream symbolism over forty years later, Dreams includes all his most important writings on the subject. It offers a fully illustrated survey of the subject that is without parallel.
