In his book The Dreaming Brain, he proposed that dreams do actually provide clear and meaningful themes along with conflictual issues that may be of value to the dreamer. He agreed with Jung that dreams have transparent meaning, and he disagreed with Freud that dreams have a latent or hidden meaning.
