About Marcus Kuchenbecker, M.A.

Marcus Kuchenbecker finished his M.A. (Magister Artium) university degree in Social Psychology, Philosophy and German Linguistics in 2010 at the Leibniz University in Hannover, Germany. Although he is working on a graduate thesis in the field of Social Psychology (esp. dream research) he currently holds no academic job position. Therefore he can be regarded as an inspired "(lucid) dreaming enthusiast" on a scientific level.
His special interests cover psychoanalytical dream research, methods of treating nightmares by dream lucidity, philosophical implications of the (lucid) sleep dream state (metaphysics and epistemology), theories of consciousness/awareness, methods of inducing dream lucidity technically as well as aspects of practical use of dream lucidity.
Besides he is a practical lucid dreamer himself and is recording and analyzing his personal dream reports professionally for several years.

His favourite sleep dream? Might be the first one he recalls (think it was his birth…) but he also enjoys flying in sleep dreams a lot, too…

My notes on the IASD

I would like to contribute my part of practical dream experience and scientific knowledge and share my psychological and philosophical ideas in the study of dreams.
I joined IASD because it seems to be the only international and interdisciplinary scientific organization fully dedicated to all aspects of dream research and dreamworking and without a specific doctrine (and last but not least it is a place where the topic of lucid dreaming is taken seriously… by university graduates).

 List of dream-related publications and/or web sites where my work is featured.

No official publications in English so far, work is in progress... Possibly it will then be published on:
IJoDR (International Journal of Dream Research)
