Memorial Day Sale!

Now through Monday, May 29th, enjoy 20% off our latest book, Conversations on Consciousness and the Bicameral Mind when you order from the JJS website:

Conversations on Consciousness and the Bicameral Mind

Including in-depth interviews with Stanford anthropology professor Tanya Luhrmann, UC Berkeley psychology professor emeritus John Kihlstrom, and many others, this book answers the most common questions people have about Jaynes’s theory and extends the theory into many new areas.

(If you live outside of the U.S., your best option is still to purchase the book through your country’s Amazon website or via special order from your favorite bookstore.)

If you’re already enjoyed the book, please help others discover it by writing a positive review on Amazon, Goodreads, or the Julian Jaynes Society website.
