I just read Julian Jaynes "History of Consciousness etc" and I am
wondering were his medical model (if you can call it that) of the
bichameral mind stands in relation to current theories of language and
brain physiology. Has he gained credibility with the "establishment" or
is he considered a crack pot? What do you think is right or wrong about
his theory of mind? I can see how he might appeal to an individual with a
Jungian disposition but where does he stand with the rest of us? Is the
bichameral mind theory good anthropology?
