Dreams, Illusion, and Other Realities by Wendy Doniger O'Flaherty - Read Online

The Western assumption that dreams are softer more subjective, false, private, transient, and illusory than the hard facts of waking life which we think of as objective, true, public, permanent, and real is an assumption that is not shared by Indian texts devoted to the meaning of dreams. Indian medicine and philosophy do not recognize the distinction between two aspects of dream analysis that is made by Roger Caillois, who speaks of "two types of problems concerning dreams that have always puzzled men's minds.
