A History of the Dream: Fate and Destiny from Gilgamesh to Jung

The dream is a muthos, a mouth that gives expression to the voice of fate and destiny. A story of the dream is told from the ancient dreams of Gilgamesh and Nebuchadnezzar to the Greek discourse; from Freud and Dora on to Jung's final dream.

By tracing the dream and the image, we follow man's grand opus of turning pre-destined fate into prospective destiny, until hubris may again endanger the future.
