What do we do with dreams?

Emeritus Professor Russell Meares

This talk puts forward some ideas towards an answer to this question. The discussion involves observations from two pioneers of dream research, Maury and Hervey de Saint-Denis; a dream of Jung, commented on by Freud; a dream of the physicist Otto Pauli, interpreted by Jung; speculations about a snap-shot dream; the archetypal image; certain neurophysiological findings.
What emerges from this discussion is the notion that we treat sessions as we would a dream, and dreams as we would a session. In both situations a co-ordination of the real and the symbolic is required. In both, analogical responsiveness is used. The objective, in both cases, is to work towards the creation of a personal story, having mythopoetic qualities.
