Papers by Ernest Hartmann M.D.

Hi, this is Dr. Ernest Hartmann. I have been asked repeatedly to make my work more accessible online. So here are some recent published papers, as well as a few unpublished talks in the form of Powerpoint presentations. They deal with dreaming, daydreaming, Boundaries in the Mind (Thick and Thin Boundaries) and some related topics.  My two most recent books are The Nature and Functions of Dreaming ( Oxford 2011) and Boundaries: A New Way to Look at the World (CIRCC 2011). If you are interested especially in dreams, there is a lot of good material at
