Review by:
Leon L. Altman

The reader of this volume will discover in it an exposition of Freud's aberrations with regard to the process of dreaming, his unsound reasoning on the dynamics of the dream, and the unfruitfulness of his emphasis on the unconscious. Beneath the headings of Dream Thoughts and Theories, The Dreams of Childhood, and Clinical Applications followed by a Dream Symposium over twenty contributors present their views under the aegis of the Scientific Proceedings of the American Academy of Psychoanalysis. The contribution of Roger Bastide, Professor of Social Anthropology at the Sorbonne, on Dreams and Culture is learned and of some interest.

Since the account most of the authors give of the dream and its place in the psychoanalytic process differs so widely and so fundamentally from Freud's, one wonders why they are not equally emboldened to change the name of the discipline under which they operate.
