Dreaming and the Dialectics of Self-Experience Among the Tzotzil Maya of Highland Chiapas, Mexico
This chapter focuses on the connection between “disavowed volition” and dreaming among the Tzotzil Maya of the highland Chiapas, Mexico. It studies the social and psychological dynamics of “dream investiture” and shows the ways basic epistemological and ontological assumptions toward dream experience lead to a culturally distinct approach to self-assertion and wilfulness.
