  2. This book deepened my understanding of Julian Jaynes s theory It was also very interesting to read Jaynes s ideas on areas not covered in his book, such as the development of consciousness in children, the mentality of tribes, and the nature of dreams and the self This is a must read for anyone seriously interested in the bicameral mind theory I ll be coming back to it again and again.


  3. Best is the essay on pain Illuminating some the discussions Very redundant though Nice, but no new insights unfortunately.


  4. Yes, I ve just started this book, BUTIf Julian Haynes is as pivotal to your life as he has been to mine you ll understand.I ve been wondering for years if there has been work that is relevant to Jaynes.This book answers my questions complete with many many references.If you are interested in Julian Jaynes, this is a book you will want.So far every page has been a mind bomb.I will add to this review as I progress through the book.f
