Why do we dream? Why are dreams often bizarre? Do dreams have symbolic meaning? What are the principles of psychoanalytic dream interpretation? Is dream interpretation the “royal road to the unconscious”? The aim of this course is to examine Sigmund Freud’s theory of dreams, and to learn why it became central to the theory of psychoanalysis.
