Example text

Freud, for example, imagines that unconscious instinctive wishes are the ultimate generators of dream images (see chapter 4). But, so long as the unconscious is viewed as a repository of biological entities, its integration with thought or image justifiably will appear to contemporary cognitivists as exceedingly difficult. However, where "the unconscious" simply designates a set of verbally formulated propositional structures of which the person is unaware, but which must be postulated to encompass the person's behavioral and experiential repertoire, then there should be little difficulty in having unconscious motives affect verbal or imaginal outputs.

Freud saw that you could have dreams, and science too. The marriage of these two passions in Freud's mind has been one of the most fruitful unions in our brief history as thinking beasts. Freud's system developed, and long was nurtured, outside the boundaries of traditional psychology. It is symptomatic of the state of twentiethcentury academic psychology, which at almost every choice-point in its mazelike history has taken the shorter path or smaller view, that only in recent years has it begun to appreciate the audacity of Freud's enterprise.

Wish-fulfillment is, on this view, only a particular endpoint in a more general explanatory model selected by Freud. It is the model which permits the analysis of those operations of the sleeping mind Freud calls "dream-work" mechanisms. And it is the model which underlies the comprehensive dream psychology Freud develops in chapters V-VII of The Interpretation of Dreams. From this perspective, "wish-fulfillment" turns out to be something of a red herring. The seeming arbitrariness with which Freud pushed his explanatory model to achieve that particular result often has been used as a basis for rejecting, or misconstruing, Freud's whole effort at explaining dreams.
