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.

'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.
