Manifest Dream

Manifest Dream (or Manifest Dream Content)


Manifest dream is Sigmund Freud‘s expression for the dream as it is dreamed, remembered, and reported, prior to any analysis. The psychoanalytical view is that the true significance of the dream is disguised by the manifest dream content. The goal of psychoanalysis with respect to dreams is to uncover their real meaning, expressed in what Freud called the latent dream.
