A Fascinating Review of Jaynes's Theory,
This review is from: Reflections on the Dawn of Consciousness: Julian Jaynes's Bicameral Mind Theory Revisited (Hardcover)
Since Julian Jaynes (RIP) wrote his classic "The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind", further evidence in support of Jaynes's theory has come to light. Notably, the study of Chinese culture and specifically the evolution of their "personation" ceremonies.
Not only does this book cover this, but it covers other academics' thought regarding Jaynes's hypothesis. The collection of essays, and the simple fact of the support that Jaynes has had from respectable academics is itself impressive.
