Synopses & Reviews
In The Dreaming Universe author Fred Alan Wolf examines the psychological and scientific elements of this most personal yet most enigmatic of human processes. By linking research ranging from the ancient Greek "dream temples" and modern experiments in telepathy, REM, and lucid dreaming to his own research on human consciousness, he theorizes that dreaming is the basis for consciousness, and that it is through dreaming that we are able to manifest a sense of ourselves.
Stanley Krippner Professor of Psychology, Saybrook Institute, Coauthor of Dream Working and Dream Telepathy Just when we thought that everything about dreams that could be written had already been published, along came Fred Alan Wolf with The Dreaming Universe.

Some readers will be outraged by Wolf's proposals, others will be ebullient, but not one of them will be bored.
