Abstract

The author tests the theories of Freud, Jung, and Adler on the function of dreams against the new facts revealed by laboratory research on sleep and dreams. None of these theories is reinforced and many of their components are disproven by the discoveries of sleep laboratories. As a result of this review the author questions whether dreaming has a special function. He believes that cognition, which never ceases while we are alive, does not change its function through the various states of mind, but its level of organization shifts from state to state.
