This is a nice all-embrasive book on dreams. It covers the history of the experience of dreaming. Andthose who have done research on dreams. It is not an interpretative guide to ones dreams, but might be a good adjunct. ( )

This well researched volume covers all of the aspects of dreams in the arenas of art, religion, philosophy, psychology, and politics in history as well as the present day. By far the most detailed analysis of dreams covers the Twentieth Century, the time of Freud and his many pupils, whose work changed our approach to mental illness from one of revulsion to one of investigation and treatments. The book is well footnoted with an extensive bibliography, making it a reference work for anyone interested in dreams, whether of a scientific nature or more inspirational. ( )

"A MASTERPIECE ON DREAMS...This book is a singular resource.... If it inspires you to remember your dreams, this book will change your life. If it inspires you to act on your dreams, this book will change the world."
--Henry Reed
Author of Getting Help from Your Dreams
and Dream Solutions
In this brilliantly researched and thorough study, internationally recognized dream authority Robert L. Van de Castle examines the vital role that dreams have played throughout history, from the dreams of ancient Sumerian kings to the pioneering dream research of nineteenth-century psychologists. Our Dreaming Mind delves into the most provocative experiments that scientists are conducting on the dreaming mind in this century and surveys ongoing dream experiments: dreams and sexual arousal, the impact of pregnancy on dreams, the connection between dreams and creativity, and the possibility of paranormal dreams.
"In Our Dreaming Mind, Robert Van de Castle pulls decades of accumulated wisdom together in a sweeping panorama unsurpassed in the literature for its scope, its insight, and its ability to captivate its readers.
--Stanley Krippner
Director of The Saybrook Institute
Editor of Dream Time and Dream Work
"IMMENSELY READABLE...A monumental history of dreams."
--Publishers Weekly
"Our Dreaming Mind is really a dream come true--the most comprehensive, authoritative, and inspiring book on dreams I know about. At heart, this book is about human consciousness and our place in the universe. A magnificent contribution."
--Larry Dossey, M.D.
