Thousands of years before Freud and Jung, the role of dream interpreter was an established profession. The Jews regarded “visions in the night” as an important source of divine guidance.
Visions in the Night examines ancient, medieval and modern literature for insights into the nature of dreams, illuminating a Jungian approach to the role of dreamwork in the analytic process. Covitz shows that the ancients had very positive methods for studying dreams as a tool of psychological transformation and healing.
Included in this book is the author’s translation of an important sixteenth-century text on dream interpretation, and a discussion of case material from his analytic practice. Second edition, revised.
