Book review The Twenty-four Hour Mind – The Role of Sleep and Dreaming in Our Emotional Lives by Rosalind D. Cartwright

Michael Schredl

Abstract


The theory Rosalind Cartwright is presenting in her book is a big milestone in the dream research field because her arguments, drawn from psychological dream research and sleep medicine research, underline the importance of the nocturnal mental processes (NREM and REM dreaming) in the twenty-four hour mind. It is a very instructive book and hopefully stimulates more research into the function(s) of dreaming.
