Sleep and dreams of the blind
Languages of publication
istnienia ludzkości i interesuje do chwili obecnej nie tylko z powodu wątku tajemniczości, lecz także ze stricte naukowego puntu widzenia, po to, aby przybliżyć się do poznania fenomenu człowieka. W ramach przywołanej problematyki zagadnienie snu osób niewidzących od urodzenia wydaje się równie znaczące i fascynujące, dlatego też w treści artykułu zaprezentowano dylemat snu w kontekście ogólnym, w kontekście zidentyfikowanej już specyfiki snów osób niewidzących od urodzenia oraz na przykładzie zrealizowanych badań własnych, obejmujących cztery osoby dorosłe (dwie kobiety i dwóch mężczyzn) doświadczające konsekwencji niewidzenia od urodzenia.

One can risk a statement that the problem of sleep has been of interest almost since the dawn of human existence. It remains interesting up until now, not only because of a thread of mystery, but also from the strictly scientific point of view and in order to get closer to the understanding the phenomenon of human being. The issue of sleep inpeople who were born blind seems equally significant and fascinating,. Therefore, the article presents the dilemma of sleep both from a general perspective and alsoin the context of dreams of people who were born blind. Four adults (two women and two men) experiencing the consequences of being blindfrom birth took part in the study.
