A selection of Jung's writings about dreams. As it includes articles from various parts of his career, some are more critical of Freudian ideas about dream analysis than others and there is rather a lot of overlap between the articles. It gets quite technical, and the comparisons to alchemy did get quite wearisome in the latter part of the book. ( )

Not only in dreams: About God, Jung said, I don't believe, I know. As soon as you read 'Dreams', you will have a complete sense of his amazing insights, not only on the subject matter, but on the complete human pysche. And this includes, as I tried to hint at from the very beginning, the very meaning of our existence. Perhaps there would not be a Jung today, if there had not been a Freud preceding him. But a completely ignorant educated man here says, having read them both, that Jung's proposal is far more clever, ellaborate, comprehensive and convincing. Jung was a unique scholar, he had a very distinctive ability to blend a lot of knowledge from seemingly unrelated areas of science into pyschology. His biography is an essential starting point to understand how he managed to develop this quality, which I think was key to his original thinking. 'Dreams' is a book of rare brilliance. Thanks to Jung, for providing a 'basis' for all things.

Classic work by Jung. A fairly complex read, incorporating psychology, science, mythology and folklore into the interpretation of dreams. ( )
