Private Myths: Dreams and Dreaming
Every night we enter a mythic realm, a dark, primordial world of fear and desire. What this world offers, Anthony Stevens suggests, may well be the key to understanding our waking mysteries - ourselves, our society, and our history. A prominent psychiatrist and practicing Jungian analyst, Stevens views dreaming from both psychological and neurological perspectives to show how dreams owe their origins as much to our evolutionary history as a species as to our personal history as individuals.
A work rich in symbolic and scientific insight, Private Myths traverses the course of dream interpretation from distant hunter-gatherer times to the present. This analysis is as authoritative as it is wide-ranging, including discussions of the biology of dreaming and the discovery of REM sleep, elaboration of the latest neuroscientific techniques in sleep research, and an assessment of the century-long legacy of analytic practice to dream interpretation. In a close look at the actual processes of dream formation, Stevens relates "dream work" to other creative capacities such as language, poetry, storytelling, memory, play, symptom-formation, magic, and ritual. He draws on his many years of experience to analyze key historical dreams, such as Freud's dream of Irma's injection and Hitler's dream of being buried alive, and enriches this discussion with analyses of his own and his patients' dreams.
Remarkable in its breadth, Private Myths makes the principles of dream interpretation accessible to scientists, the findings of dream science accessible to analysts, and the discoveries of both available to anyone intrigued by the mysteries of dreams and dreaming....
Бодрствование и сон
Книга профессора А.М.Вейна посвящена важной и малоизученной проблеме: роли и значению сна и бодрствования в жизни человека. В ней рассматриваются причины, вызывающие сон и бодрствование, и механизмы этих состояний, а также регулирование смены сна и бодрствования.

The Insomnia Solution : The Natural, Drug-Free Way to a Good Night's Sleep
Book DescriptionInsomnia. It?s a nearly universal affliction that keeps millions of Americans up at night. But now there?s help: Michael Krugman?s Sounder Sleep System?. In this revolutionary book, Krugman shows readers that insomnia is not just a nighttime affliction, but a 24-hour-a-day condition resulting from daytime stress that persists into the night, delaying the onset of sleep and making it shallower and less restful.
To relieve stress and ensure sounder sleep, Krugman offers a two-pronged program of gentle, physical techniques, called mini-moves?, based on traditional and modern self-healing methods. Brief, daytime mini-moves offset stress and make life more peaceful?the perfect prelude to sounder sleep. Nighttime mini-moves, done while lying quietly in bed, make it easy to fall asleep at bedtime and to recover from unwanted awakenings later in the night.
Readers can personalize the plan, which consists of a combination of 18 mini-moves. Presented in a profusely illustrated, step-by-step format that makes learning fun and effective, THE INSOMNIA SOLUTION will help millions of readers to sleep easier....

The Sleep Revolution
We are in the midst of a sleep deprivation crisis, and this has profound consequences – on our health, our job performance, our relationships and our happiness. In this book, Arianna Huffington boldly asserts that what is needed is nothing short of a sleep revolution. Only by renewing our relationship with sleep can we take back control of our lives. Through a sweeping, scientifically rigorous and deeply personal exploration of sleep from all angles, Arianna delves into the new golden age of sleep science that reveals the vital role sleep plays in our every waking moment and every aspect of our health – from weight gain, diabetes, and heart disease to cancer and Alzheimer’s. In The Sleep Revolution, Arianna shows how our cultural dismissal of sleep as time wasted not only compromises our health and our decision-making but also undermines our work lives, our personal lives and even our sex lives. She explores all the latest science on what exactly is going on while we sleep and dream. She takes on the dangerous sleeping pill industry and confronts all the ways our addiction to technology disrupts our sleep. She also offers a range of recommendations and tips from leading scientists on how we can achieve better and more restorative sleep, and harness its incredible power. In today's fast-paced, always-connected, perpetually harried and sleep-deprived world, our need for a good night’s sleep is more important – and elusive – than ever. The Sleep Revolution both sounds the alarm on our worldwide sleep crisis and provides a detailed road map to the great sleep awakening that can help transform our lives, our communities and our world....
