Stefan Pernar of Singapore will be speaking on "The Emergence of Gods in the Bicameral Mind" at the 2009 Toward A Science of Consciousness Conference in Hong Kong in June. Leiden University philosophy professor Jan Sleutels, whose essay "Greek Zombies" appears in Reflections on the Dawn of Consciousness, will also be speaking on recent changes in human consciousness.

"Reflections on the Dawn of Consciousness"
Our new book on Julian Jaynes's theory has now been sent to readers in 27 countries. It has been purchased by numerous libraries, including Harvard University.
For those of you in the United Kingdom and Europe who have not yet purchased a copy, now is a good time to take advantage of the weak dollar. For Euros it is equivalent to getting the book at a 25% discount; for British pounds, more than a 30% discount. This offsets the cost of international shipping.
To order the book, go to: www.julianjaynes.org/book
