A specially intrinsic connection

Freud acknowledged in The Interpretation of Dreams that there were many kinds of dreams, including those whose meaning was transparent: ‘While some dreams completely disregard the logical sequence of their material, others attempt to give as full an indication of it as possible.’15 However, it was the more complex, perplexing dreams that most drew his psychological attention. He argued that although such dreams defied easy understanding, this did not mean that they were without their own logic; indeed, they bore within their momentum an intrinsic connective reasoning.
