Dream Psychology: Psychoanalysis for Beginners is a work by Sigmund Freud published in 1920.

For Sigmund Freud, dreams have a meaning and it is possible to interpret them and extract information about the person from them. In this book, Freud exposes how the interpretation of dreams can reflect the desires of the unconscious.

"In what we may term "prescientific days" people were in no uncertainty about the interpretation of dreams. When they were recalled after awakening they were regarded as either the friendly or hostile manifestation of some higher powers, demoniacal and Divine. With the rise of scientific thought the whole of this expressive mythology was transferred to psychology; to-day there is but a small minority among educated persons who doubt that the dream is the dreamer's own psychical act."

This book edition is based on the translation by Eder, M. D., The Games A. McCann Company, 1920 New York. with an introduction by AndrΓ© Tridon.

The best Dream Psychology quotes

If we subject the content of the dream to analysis, we become aware that the dream fear is no more justified by the dream content than the fear in a phobia is justified by the idea upon which the phobia depends.

193

Every one has wishes which he would not like to tell to others, which he does not want to admit even to himself.

193

We are what we are because we have been what we have been.

191

Dreams tell us many an unpleasant biological truth about ourselves and only very free minds can thrive on such a diet. Self-deception is a plant which withers fast in the pellucid atmosphere of dream investigation.

191

If we avail ourselves for a moment longer of the right to elaborate from the dream interpretation such far-reaching psychological speculations, we are duty bound to demonstrate that we are thereby bringing the dream into a relationship which may also comprise other psychic structures.
