Croyances et représentations enfantines du rêve

Abstract : A study has been carried out among 5-to-10-year-old children and students to determine evolutions about dream beliefs. Four dimensions are revealed : generality, materiality, personal control and surnatural characteristics of dreams. Results showed that some beliefs increased with age and are affected by sexual identity. We propose a double perspective, rational and non rational, and we discuss the status of dualisms mentioned usually in the study of fictional mental states (unreal-real, private-public, internal-external).
