Dream Interpretation

Otto Rank

Since the last collective review (Jahrb. der Psa., VI, S. 272) two new editions of the "Traumdeutung" (4. Aufl. 1914 and 5. Aufl. 1919) have appeared as well as Freud's "Vorlesungen zur Einführung in die Psychoanalyse", of which the second part is devoted to the exposition of the dream. Since these works contain important extensions of the theory of dream interpretation, and also all the recognised advances in the literature of the subject, it seems appropriate to use the clue supplied by Freud's expositions for following out the further development of the theory of dreams.

We will preface our remarks by a pronouncement of Freud's, taken from the last edition of the "Traumdeutung" (23, S. 409) a pronouncement which states nothing essentially new, but nevertheless throws a characteristic light on the deepening understanding of the dream through psycho-analysis, as well as on the significance of this for the history of man and civilisation.
