Contemporary Approaches to the Understanding of Dreams
Anthony Shafton - Author

A comprehensive survey of contemporary approaches to understanding dreams. If you can have only one book on dreams, this is the one to have.
"Dream Reader by Anthony Shafton is a book so unique in its combination of scholarship, clarity, and down-to-earth feeling about dreams that I find it hard to fully express the excitement and satisfaction I felt on reading it.

Exploring the Religious Meanings of Dreams in Modern Western Culture

The Functions of Dreaming
The Functions of Dreaming (March 1993)
Alan Moffitt - Editor
Milton Kramer - Editor
Robert Hoffmann - Editor

"Understanding dreaming is essential to a comprehensive account of the nature of the mind. After all, we spend a third of our lives sleeping; as the chapters of this book amply demonstrate, important mental activity goes on during sleep, and psychology cannot be complete as long as it ignores the mind asleep and dreaming. The editors have done a commendable job of bringing together a wide variety of views of the 'elephant of the dark.' I found re...(Read More)

Dreams and Professional Personhood (July 1991)
The Contexts of Dream Telling and Dream Interpretation among American Psychotherapists

This is a significant contribution to the public's understanding of the importance of dreaming."-- Jeremy Taylor, Association for the Study of Dreams; author of Dream Work

"The discussion o...(Read More)
To Catch A Dream
To Catch A Dream (January 1991)
Explorations of Dreaming

"This is a very readable book on dreams which is solidly based from beginning to end on the best theoretical and laboratory evidence on dreams available today. As Koulack says, dreams are recollections of past events which are encapsulated in the sleeping state. As such, they are very difficult to study scientifically; Koulack has developed a solid reputation as a dream researcher and theoretician during the course of his work which now spans more...(Read More)
