The French, Spanish, and German versions of The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown in the Bicameral Mind are out of print, but can occasionally be found online on Amazon.com, E-bay, etc., as well as through some libraries.

The book is still in print in both English and Italian.

The foreign language translations of The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind are as follows:

Thank you for answering!

I already knew that and bought an English version that I'm slowly trying to integrate ;-)

I'll continue searching.
