Abstract:
The aim of this thesis was to critically evaluate Hall and Van de Castle's (1966) content analysis system (HVCAS), which has become the dominant method of researching dream report content. In keeping with their idea of 'Normative' dream report content statistics were for UK-based dreamers were developed. The conclusion of this study was that dream emotion was not adequately accounted for, and that when the dominant emotion in dreams was used as an Independent variable, many of the socalled ubiquitous sex differences reported in normal dream report content were unsupported. Rather what determined many of the finding was whether the dream was predominantly pleasant or unpleasant.
