Sigmund Freud’s Die Traumdeutung was written in 1900. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of this occasion, the authors gathered in the present volume investigated the state of the art of dream study from a decidedly cultural study point of view. Bearing this in mind, the reader should be aware of a possible misunderstanding in this context. In the modern western, “post-freudian” perspective dreams are usually regarded as the private and internal experiences of an individual without any objective reality. They are caused by the body or the psyche of the dreamer and are of relevance with regard of the individual and its past experiences.

Members of non-western or past cultures which are the focus of this book regard dreams as important messages, sent by external supernatural forces. These messages can foretell the future and are able to determine, for good or bad, the life of the dreamer, his family, his clan or even his nation. The following papers discuss in detail the possible consequences of such alternitive views on dreaming.
