  Dream Interpretation from Primitives
to Sigmund Freud and C.G. Jung

By Jean Chiriac

This ebook is a comprehensive description of dream interpretation techniques from primitive times to Sigmund Freud and C. G. Jung. We start with a study of the dream and its significance with shamans and warlocks in primitive cultures. We shall then make a step further in order to study the Old Testament's outlook on dreams. Are you acquainted with the Joseph and the Pharaoh story? Have you ever wondered how Joseph was able to interpret symbolic dreams or what his unusual capacities and senses were to penetrate their significance? This is the topic of the second chapter.

The next step is the presentation of Artemidor's book - 'The Interpretation of Dreams' - formulating the principles of dream interpretation in Greek-Roman antiquity. We shall finally be able to study the methods of interpretation of Sigmund Freud and C. G. Jung, the two great psychoanalysts once again bringing to the fore the dream and its hallucinating message.
