The Educational Value of Dreams
By considering dreams as metaphors and imaginal expressions of their
feelings and concerns, students can move from concrete to more
abstract, symbolic ways of thinking. This will not only give them a greater
understanding of Art and Literature but, in addition, will aid them in many
different subject areas.
The application of metaphor and analogy will enhance the power of their
memory and will also improve communication skills, particularly in
scientific disciplines where abstract concepts need to be conveyed
clearly and concisely.
