A COGNITIVE MODEL OF DREAMS There is no doubt that some dreams seem to be clear-cut wish fulfillments.

Both of these studies supported the psychoanalytic propositions that depression was a form of inverted hostility and that depressed patients evidenced a wish to suffer. I argued in my dissertation that Beck struggled during these years, however, to reconcile in his own mind the two worldviews of psychoanalysis and experimental science (Rosner, 1999). While he had been trained to raise psychoanalytic theory above the level of doubt, the epistemology of experimental science was requiring him to trust data rather than theory.

He argued that his new clinical approach, what he was calling “Cognitive (Insight) Psychotherapy,” reflected more accurately the clinical and experimental data he had collected (Beck, 1967, p. 318). The 1967 book marked Beck’s first public admission that he was moving away from psychoanalysis toward a new cognitive therapy, and his dream research and the epistemology of experimental science played central roles in that journey. BECK’S 1971 “COGNITIVE PATTERNS IN DREAMS AND DAYDREAMS” IN CONTEXT Beck devoted much less time to dream research after the publication of his 1967 book on depression.
