    Abstract

    Book synopsis: Man must sleep and sleep about a third of his life. But this time is well used, because sleeping serves the regeneration of mind and body. But the seemingly simple questions "Why do we sleep?" And "What are we dreaming of?" Scientists are still puzzling to this day. The basic need for sleep is associated with problems for many people: sleep behavior and habits have radically changed, sleep disorders have become a mass phenomenon. With its demand for spatial mobility and temporal flexibility, globalization has not only revolutionized the working world, but has also increasingly forced its rhythm to human biorhythm and our sleep needs. Against the background of these developments, sleep becomes an ever more precious commodity and the key to the well-being and performance of the individual and the whole of society. The band offers insights into the mysteries of the night: it deals with the biomedical and neurological processes in our sleeping body and brain. He asks about the nature of fatigue and sleep, and shows how we find sleep or fight against our sleep needs. It deals with the effects of social changes and scientific research on our sleep behavior and the change in our understanding of our dreams. The book makes it clear that the human basic constants sleep and dream were and are subjected to strong cultural and historical changes.
