Review

Praise for Julian Jaynes's Theory

"... A theory that could alter our view of consciousness, revise our conception of the history of mankind, and lay bare the human dilemma in all its existential wonder." ― James E. Morriss, in ETC: A Review of General Semantics

"... [O]ne of the most thought-provoking and debated theories about the origin of the conscious mind." ― Andrea Cavanna, M.D., in Consciousness: Theories in Neuroscience and Philosophy of Mind

"[Jaynes's] proposal is too interesting to ignore." --David Eagleman, Ph.D., in Incognito: The Secret Lives of the Brain

"... I sympathize with Julian Jaynes's claim that something of great import may have happened to the human mind during the relatively brief interval of time between the events narrated in the Iliad and those that make up the Odyssey." --Antonio Damasio, Ph.D., in Self Comes to Mind

"... Scientific interest in [Jaynes's] work has been re-awakened by the consistent findings of right-sided activation patterns in the brain, as retrieved with the aid of neuroimaging studies in individuals with verbal auditory hallucinations." --Jan Dirk Blom, M.D., Ph.D., in A Dictionary of Hallucinations --This text refers to the paperback edition.
