dc.description.abstractThis thesis seeks to connect dreams and rituals through their analogous pscyho-cultural functions as agents of (re)order during both epochal and daily liminal phases of life. Further, it attempts to describe dreaming as psychologically vital for mediating experience through the cognitive process of schematization while making the claim that Western postmodernity’s rejection of dream ideology and the resultant societal rejection of belief in their metaphysical significance has withered their psychological benefits. This connection will be made through the qualities of liminal experience and rites of passage at the macro and microcosmic scale, the process of schema formation through ritualistic belief and practice, and an ethnography of a postmodern, urban population of young adults and their process of documenting and discussing their dream ideations.
