On the About Julian Jaynes page it says he gave a lecture at the Wittgenstein Symposium in Kirchburg.
It is Kirchberg.

I was there. It was a wonderful lecture. It is a pity that his work has not had a deeper impact. I still believe he was basically right (and certainly his prose was brilliant).

I did ask him, by the way, whether he thought it possible that the Aborigines in Australia were not conscious as late as the 18th or 19th century. He said he was not sure and that it would be worthwhile to investigate. Well, I never did and probably no one else.

Thank you.
Dan
