Lucid Dreaming: New Perspectives on Consciousness in Sleep

Endlich ist mal ein lesenswertes neues Buch über das Klarträumen erschienen.  Auf 691 Seiten findet man die neuesten Erkenntnisse aus den unterschiedlichsten Disziplinen, Weltbildern und Herangehensweisen. Der Preis ist mit 108,95€ für die gebundene Ausgabe bzw. 74,26€ für die Kindle-Ausgabe schon etwas happig. Vielleicht findet man es früher oder später in der Unibücherei...

Aus der Buchbeschreibung bei Amazon:
The first set of its kind, Lucid Dreaming: New Perspectives on Consciousness in Sleep provides a comprehensive showcase of the theories, research, and direct experience that serve to illuminate how certain people can maintain conscious awareness while dreaming. The text is organized into two sections, covering science, psychology, and education; and religious traditions, creativity, and culture. Contributors to this two-volume work include top dream experts across the globe—scholars sharing knowledge gained from deep personal explorations and cutting-edge scientific investigations.Topics covered include the neuroscience of lucid dreaming, clinical uses of lucid dreaming in treating trauma, the secret history of lucid dreaming in English philosophy, and spiritual practices of lucid dreaming in Islam, Buddhism, and shamanic traditions. The work also addresses lucid dreaming in movies including The Matrix and literature such as the fiction of J.R.R. Tolkien and explains how modern video gaming enhances lucidity. This set serves as an ideal text and reference work for school libraries and academic courses in anthropology, psychology, religious studies, and cognitive science as well as for graduate-level study in holistic education—an increasingly popular specialization.
