Victorian Theory

Although outdated and in some cases completely ludicrous, I was impressed with the Victorian Dream Theories we read. These theorists made more or less logical conclusions based on what they had to go on. Having nightmares? Did you eat that rarebit for dinner? 2+2=4.

I feel for them, a little. When we read these in class, we all got a laugh out their silly notions, having just learned all these fancy modern theories. I give these men credit for making logical (if not entirely soundly logical) conclusions about the nature and causes of dreaming. They got the ball rolling, and gave those that came after something to debunk, and something for us to laugh and wink at in class.
