Hi,

Many years ago I read a large summary of The Origins of Consciousness, it completely changed and improved my perspective and outlook on life. I'm now wanting to further explore the concept, but more importantly, I want to introduce it to friends and family that haven't been exposed to it yet.

So I was hoping to get some advice. When introducing someone to the bicameral mind hypothesis, which book will be more palatable for them, and have a larger impact? The original by Jaynes himself, or the Reflections on the Dawn of Consciousness?

Any information would be great :)

Thanks :)

Go for the original. It is not only a presentation of a highly original theory but also great reading. The other books are good and interesting but not as much fun.
