Review

Praise for Julian Jaynes's Theory

"Julian Jaynes's theories for the nature of self-awareness, introspection, and consciousness have replaced the assumption of their almost ethereal uniqueness with explanations that could initiate the next change in paradigm for human thought." -- Michael Persinger, in Reflections on the Dawn of Consciousness

"... 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

"Some of Jaynes's original ideas may be the most important of our generation." -- Ernest Rossi, in Psychological Perspectives

"Neuroimaging techniques of today have illuminated and confirmed the importance of Jaynes's hypothesis." -- Robert Olin in Lancet

"... One of the clearest and most perspicuous defenses of the top-down approach [to consciousness] that I have ever come across." -- Daniel Dennett, in Brainchildren

"Julian Jaynes is a scholar in the broad original sense of that term. A man of huge creative vitality, Julian Jaynes is my academic man for all seasons." --Hubert Dolezal, in The MacLeod Symposium

"... One of the clearest and most perspicuous defenses of the top-down approach [to consciousness] that I have ever come across."
Daniel Dennett, in Brainchildren

"... 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, in Self Comes to Mind

"Julian Jaynes is a scholar in the broad original sense of that term. A man of huge creative vitality, Julian Jaynes is my academic man for all seasons." --Hubert Dolezal, in The MacLeod Symposium

Product Description

**Updated with a new, never before seen 30 page radio interview with Julian Jaynes.**

Princeton University psychologist Julian Jaynes's revolutionary theory on the origin of consciousness or the "modern mind" remains as relevant and thought-provoking as when it was first proposed. Supported by recent discoveries in neuroscience, Jaynes's ideas force us to rethink conventional views of human history and psychology, and have profound implications for many aspects of modern life. Included in this volume are rare and never before seen articles, lectures, interviews, and in-depth discussions that both clear up misconceptions as well as extend Jaynes's theory into new areas such as the nature of the self, dreams, emotions, art, music, therapy, and the consequences and future of consciousness.
