  • The 'Other' Psychology of Julian Jaynes

    Ancient Languages, Sacred Visions, and Forgotten Mentalities
    (Author)

    Brian J. McVeigh, a student of Jaynes, points out the blind spots of mainstream, establishment psychology by providing empirical support for Jaynes's ideas on sociohistorical shifts in cognition. He argues that from around 3500 to 1000 BCE the archaeological and historical record reveals features of hallucinatory super-religiosity.
