On Freud's "Interpretation of Dreams"


Summer 2012 quarter

Kathleen Eamon philosophy
Fields of Study
literature, philosophy, psychology and writing

In this intensive five-week program, we will read Freud's Interpretation of Dreams in its entirety, using textual analysis, writing, and conversation to understand what it means to claim that the "interpretation of dreams is the royal road to the unconscious," watching closely how Freud forges a new path between physiological-scientific explanations of dreams, on the one hand, and mythic, religious, and popular belief in their deep meaning, on the other.  This work is foundational not just in psychology and philosophy but also in understanding contemporary approaches to film, aesthetics, and literature.
