The Dream and Its Amplification, by Nancy Swift Furlotti and Erel Shalit (Eds.)
Fischer King Press
Amplification means seeking parallels. “In the case of a word which you have never come across before, you try to find parallel text passages… where the word also occurs… If you make the new text a readable whole, you say, ‘Now we can read it.’ That is how we learned to red hieroglyphics and cuneiform inscriptions and that is how we can read dreams.” C. G. Jung, The Tavistock Lectures
The Dream and Its Amplification unveils the language of the psyche that speaks to us in our dreams. We all dream at least 4-6 times each night yet remember very few. Those that rise to the surface of our conscious awareness beckon to be understood, like a letter addressed to us that arrives by post. Why would we not open it? The difficulty is in understanding what the dream symbols and images mean.
Through amplification, C. G. Jung formulated a method of unveiling the deeper meaning of symbolic images. This becomes particularly important when the image does not carry a personal meaning or significance and is not part of a person’s everyday life.
Fourteen Jungian Analysts from around the world have contributed chapters to this book on areas of special interest to them in their work with dreams. This offers the seasoned dream worker as well as the novice great insight into the meaning of the dream and its amplification.
