Science and Human Behavior“The principal realm of the symbol is the dream which occurs when we are asleep. This is a species of private event which is extremely difficult to study and is, therefore, the subject of much conflicting discussion.

Controlling variables may sometimes be discovered in the immediate environment or in the recent history of the individual.” (p. 293)
