Jung and Freud had a disagreement if the dream had a façade or not. Jung argued that dreams are natural productions, thus there was no reason to assume that it was meant to deceive.
I was never able to agree with Freud that the dream is a “façade” behind which its meaning lies hidden—a meaning already known but maliciously, so to speak, withheld from consciousness. To me dreams are a part of nature, which harbors no intention to deceive, but expresses something as best it can, just as a plant grows or an animal seeks its food as best it can.
Carl Jung, Memories, Dreams, Reflections, pp. 161–162
Much as I admire the boldness of [Freud’s] attempt, I cannot agree either with his method or with its results. He explains the dream as a mere façade behind which something has been carefully hidden. There is no doubt that neurotics hide disagreeable things, probably just as much as normal people do. But it is a serious question whether this category can be applied to such a normal and worldwide phenomenon as the dream. I doubt whether we can assume that a dream is something other than it appears to be. I am rather inclined to quote another Jewish authority, the Talmud, which says: “The dream is its own interpretation.” In other words I take the dream for what it is. The dream is such a difficult and complicated thing that I do not dare to make any assumptions about its possible cunning or its tendency to deceive. The dream is a natural occurrence, and there is no earthly reason why we should assume that it is a crafty device to lead us astray. It occurs when consciousness and will are to a large extent extinguished. It seems to be a natural product which is also found in people who are not neurotic. More over, we know so little about the psychology of the dream process that we must be more than careful when we introduce into its explanation elements that are foreign to the dream itself.
Carl Jung, Psychology and Religion, CW 11, par 41
In my experience, dreams are indeed a natural expression of the self-regulating psyche and, despite their cryptic appearance, they are the clearest expression of inner dynamics. Lacking the ability to understand dreams does not make them incoherent, just as not being able to read a foreign language is no reason to dismiss what is expressed.
[Dreams] do not deceive, they do not lie, they do not distort or disguise… They are invariably seeking to express something that the ego does not know and does not understand.
Carl Jung, Development of Personality, CW 17, par 189
What Freud calls ‘the dream façade’ is the dream’s obscurity, and this is really only a projection of our own lack of understanding. We say that the dream has a false front only because we fail to see into it.
Carl Jung, The Practice of Psychotherapy, CW 16, par 319
My personal practice has convinced me that the case made by Jung is most accurate. This is why I always approach dreams as objective psychic facts and I treat them as such. If the dreamer brings me a terrifying nightmare, then the reality of the psyche is that things are not going well, no matter how the dreamer argues that there is no issue in his life.
