The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind, (original 1976; edition 1976)
Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0618057072, Paperback)
At the heart of this classic, seminal book is Julian Jaynes's still-controversial thesis that human consciousness did not begin far back in animal evolution but instead is a learned process that came about only three thousand years ago and is still developing. The implications of this revolutionary scientific paradigm extend into virtually every aspect of our psychology, our history and culture, our religion -- and indeed our future.
