The Biology of Dreaming: By Ernest Hartmann. (Boston State Hospital Monograph Series, no. 2.) Springfield, Ill.: Thomas, 1967. Pp. 206.

Review by:
W. H. Gillespie

As its title implies, Ernest Hartmann's monograph is concerned less with the psychological aspects than with the neurophysiology, endocrinology and biochemistry of what he distinguishes both from the waking and the sleeping states by calling it the D-state. The book is well written, scholarly and extremely well documented, with 656 references, and it will therefore be of great value to students of this new subject. Psychoanalysts who wish to keep abreast with ongoing research having so close a relation to the psychology of dreams and the primary process will find it helpful, but may at this stage feel that Charles Fisher's extensive review (J. Am. psychoanal. Ass., 1965) is adequate and more specifically orientated to their interests.
