Les rêves et leur interprétation : systèmes interprétatifs culturels et interprétation psychanalytique

Abstract : This thesis focuses on the interpretive process associated with the dream and its cultural roots. If the interpretation of dreams is one of the major access routes to the unconscious, it is also a specific characteristic to some cultures. If the unconscious psychic processes are universal because they are specific to a person, specific to the human dimension, the cultural anchoring of the “dreamer” is circumstantial. The exploration has been done in Mauritius from interviews in the different religious communities of the island. This research addresses the "cultural inscription of dreams” in different theories and the field search; "the dream and its interpretations" in psychoanalytic and ethnological perspective to establish a framework for the concept of "pre- interpretive"; the methodological issues regarding this research and the treatment and analysis of 9 interviews. The process of the dream, from its development to its interpretation, is formed from a pre-interpretive which is in the dream when for the dreamer there is a possible dream interpretation system, whether it is psychoanalytic or cultural. This cultural prior and necessarily shared is a part of the dream elements, as well as the diurnal items, souvenirs etc. mentioned by Freud. This thesis opens to the consideration of a cultural basis within the work of a clinical psychologist in another culture.
