Nightmares and the Dream Self
Lecture no. 14 from the course: Understanding the Dark Side of Human Nature
Taught by Professor Daniel Breyer | 28 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses
Who are we in the worst of our dreams? Explore why Freud believed our dreams reveal important aspects of ourselves—both the conscious and unconscious. Learn how Augustine coped when he dreamed of actions that went against his most profound beliefs. Even when we have no idea how to interpret a particularly disturbing dream, it still becomes an opportunity for learning about ourselves.
