Description - Children's Dreaming and the Development of Consciousness by David Foulkes

This text argues that dreaming as it is normally understood - active stories in which the dreamer is an actor - appears relatively late in childhood. This true dreaming begins between the ages of 7 and 9. David Foulkes argues that this late development suggests an equally late waking self-awareness. Foulkes offers a spirited defense of the independence of the psychological realm, and the legitimacy of studying it without either psychoanalytical over-interpretation or neurophysiological reductionism.
