A four-part series of posts exploring the reasons people interpret their dreams and providing broad overviews of three different styles of dream interpretation.

A four-part series of posts exploring an uncommon yet fruitful way of looking at meaning in dreams and the complex relationship between nature, art and deception that an interpreter of dreams is faced with. Includes a critique of psychoanalytic theory.

A page with updates. Pretty much what it says on the tin.
