Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Frederik Willem van Eeden (April 3, 1860, Haarlem - June 16, 1932, Bussum) was a late 19th century and early 20th century Dutch writer and psychiatrist. He was a leading member of the Tachtigers, and had top billing among the editors of De Nieuwe Gids (The New Guide) during its celebrated first few years of publication, starting in 1885. In 1880 Van Eeden studied English at Leiden University where he pursued a bohemian lifestyle and wrote poetry. Whilst living in the city, he coined the term Lucid dream in the sense of mental clarity, a term that nowadays is a classic term in the Dream literature and study, meaning dreaming while knowing that one is dreaming. In his early writings, he was strongly influenced by Hindu ideas of selfhood, by Boehme's mysticism, and by Fechner's panpsychism.show more
