Wolfgang Lauschner

In Dream Work and Remembering in the Light of Dissociation and Reassociation Processed in the Preconscious, the author contends that the mechanisms of dream work can be traced back to a process of alternation in the psyche between dissociation and reassociation. Drawing on findings from stimulation experiments in a sleep lab, the author first discusses dissociative processes in dreams. He marshals evidence suggesting that block-ading (of concise meaning) and sequentialization qualify for definition as dream work mechanisms, alongside fragmentation. Indissolubly bound up with the dissociation process is a process of reassociation, in which the fragments are reassembled into a whole. The author sees dissociation and reassociation as operations of the preconscious and the unconscious. An initial attempt is made to extend these findings to remembering and memory.

The author appeals to the work of Maurice Halbwachs to substantiate his thesis that the external world is an indispensable, actualizing, reassociation factor, making memory possible in the first place.
