Julian Jaynes

Julian Jaynes was an American researcher in psychology at Yale and Princeton for nearly 25 years and best known for his 1976 book The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind. His career was dedicated to the problem of consciousness, “…the difference between what others see of us and our sense of our inner selves and the deep feelings that sustain it. … Men have been conscious of the problem of consciousness since consciousness began.” Jaynes's solution touches on many disciplines, including neuroscience, psychology, history and analysis of ancient texts. Jaynes was born in West Newton, son of Julian Clifford Jaynes, a Unitarian minister, Clara Bullard Jaynes, he attended Harvard University, was an undergraduate at McGill University and afterwards received master's and doctorate degrees from Yale University. He was a close friend of Edwin G. Boring. Jaynes spent several years in prison for refusing to participate in the second World War. During this time period Jaynes made significant contributions in the fields of animal behavior and ethology.

After Yale, Jaynes spent several years in England working as an playwright. Jaynes returned to the United States and lectured in psychology at Princeton University from 1966 to 1990, teaching a popular class on consciousness for much of that time, he was in high demand as a lecturer and was invited to lecture at conferences and as a guest lecturer at other universities. In 1984, he was invited to give the plenary lecture at the Wittgenstein Symposium in Kirchberg, Austria, he gave six major lectures in 1985 and nine in 1986. He was awarded an honorary Ph. D. by Rhode Island College in 1979 and another from Elizabethtown College in 1985. He died at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, on November 21, 1997. In his book, Jaynes reviews what one of his early critics acknowledged as the “spectacular history of failure” to explain consciousness – “the human ability to introspect”. Abandoning the assumption that consciousness is innate, Jaynes explains it instead as a learned behavior that “arises... from language, from metaphor.”

With this understanding, Jaynes demonstrated that ancient texts and archeology can reveal a history of human mentality alongside the histories of other cultural products. His analysis of the evidence led him not only to place the origin of consciousness during the 2nd millennium BCE but to hypothesize the existence of an older non-conscious “mentality that he called the bicameral mind, referring to the brain’s two hemispheres”. Jaynes wrote an extensive afterword for the 1990 edition of his book, in which he addressed criticisms and clarified that his theory has four separate hypotheses: consciousness is based on and accessed by language, he expanded on the impact of consciousness on imagination and memory, notions of The Self, anxiety and sexuality. The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind was a successful work of popular science, selling out the first print run before a second could replace it; the book was a nominee for the National Book Award in 1978, received dozens of positive book reviews, including those by well-known critics such as John Updike in The New Yorker, Christopher Lehmann-Haupt in the New York Times, Marshall McLuhan in the Toronto Globe and Mail.

Articles on Jaynes and his ideas appeared in Time magazine and Psychology Today in 1977, in Quest/78 in 1978. Jaynes expanded on the ideas in his book in a series of commentaries in the journal Behavioral and Brain Sciences, in lectures and discussions published in Canadian Psychology, in Art/World. More than 40 years the book is still in print, it is mentioned in Richard Dawkins's 2006 work The God Delusion as "one of those books, either complete rubbish or a work of consummate genius, nothing in between! The former, but I'm hedging my bets." Jaynes's work on consciousness has influenced philosophers Daniel Dennett, Susan Blackmore, Ken Wilber, the bicameral model of the cerebral hemispheres has influenced schizophrenia researchers Henry Nasrallah and Tim Crow. The theory of bicamerality has been cited in thousands of books and articles, both scientific and popular, it inspired early investigations of auditory hallucination by psychologist Thomas Posey and clinical psychologist John Hamilton.

With further research in the late 1990s using new brain imaging technology, Jaynes's ideas received renewed attention and recognition for contributing to a rethinking of auditory hallucinations and mental illness. In the popular domain, the idea of bicamerality has influenced novelists Philip K. Dick, William S. Burroughs, Neal Stephenson and Robert J. Sawyer.. In 2009, American novelist Terence Hawkins published The Rage of Achilles, a re-telling of Homer’s The Iliad that imagines the hero’s transition from bicameral mentality to consciousness. In The Psychology of Westworld: When Machines Go Mad, Brian J. McVeigh analyzed how bicamerality was interpreted in the 2016 science fiction TV series Westworld. A 2007 book titled Reflections on the Dawn of Consciousness: Julian Jaynes's Bicameral Mind Theory Revisited contains several of Jaynes's essays along with chapters by scholars from a variety of disciplines expanding on his ideas. At the April 2008 "Toward a Science of Consciousness" Conference held in Tucson, Marcel Kuijsten (Executive Director

Campaign Against Nuclear Energy

The Campaign Against Nuclear Energy was established in Perth, Western Australia on 14 February 1976 by Friends of the Earth. CANE was a non-profit grass roots organisation whose aim was to stop the establishment of a nuclear power plant in Western Australia and to halt uranium mining and it operated out of the Environment Centre in Wellington Street, Perth; the Whitlam Federal government in 1974 had dedicated about A$7,000 per state to set up Regional Environment Centres. Perth's Environment Centre housed other groups including the Australian Conservation Foundation, the Conservation Council of WA, Friends of the Earth, the Campaign to Save Native Forests. A CANE group was established in Adelaide, South Australia. CANE's statement of objectives said it was: It opposed the development of Nuclear Power Stations, it supported the Nuclear! Non-Proliferation Treaty and opposed the proliferation and acquisition of Weapons of Mass destruction and linked WMD with nuclear power stations, it opposed foreign policies based on nuclear deterrence.

It supported attempts to establish regional nuclear free zones. It was opposed to the use of Australian ports by nuclear-armed vessels. CANE was opposed to the export of Australian uranium for other than biomedical purposes, it asked for the cessation of development operations. It urged the adoption of long range alternative energy policies designed to meet the legitimate needs of future generations, it emphasised that it was coalition of groups and individuals working for the ideal of a more ethical and equitable energy future. 1976 was CANE's initial year of protest. There were demonstrations at Perth Airport, Rockingham, against US nuclear armed carriers headed by Barrie Machin:, a lecturer at the University of Western Australia. CANE, under Barrie Machin's leadership, was active in its criticism of the Fox Report 1977, it was the first anti-nuclear organisation to draw attention to Aboriginal Land Rights and Uranium mining. Gloria Brennan, the first Aboriginal student at the Department of Social Anthropology at UWA, was invited to join CANE and lobby and inform Aboriginal communities in WA.

She did this successfully. Gloria died of cancer brought about from the fall-out from the Maralinga tests. CANE decided to hold major demonstrations in 1977, it set no goals about numbers since this could not be predicted. Newspapers varied in their estimates of the crowds. At the first rally in April, supporters marched from the Esplanade to Parliament House and the attendance was estimated at 600. At the second rally, on Hiroshima Day, attracted 3000 people and in November 10,000 people marched, larger than the anti-Vietnam rallies in Perth a few years earlier. Barrie Machin, as coordinator, first drew attention to the dangers of Nuclear Power stations as target for terrorists, the dangers of a link with the foreign policies of the US in a pamphlet titled: Accomplices to Armageddon. In 1977 Barrie Machin represented CANE on the WA steering committee for the Australian Democrats, stimulated by Don Chipp in response to the issue of Uranium mining. On the committee was Jack Evans who became a Senator for the Democrats.

I have been grossly disappointed with the attitude of the government on uranium mining.... The last straw on this issue was the action of the Deputy Prime Minister in launching a pro-uranium book with a statement by the Ambassador of Japan advocating the mining of Australian uranium; the breach of our promise to continue the Australian Assistance Plan. In 1978 with considerable help from Gloria Brennan Barrie Machin and other CANE members lobbied the Labour Party's National conference, their success was helped when Bob Hawke's son was manhandled by the police in Melbourne protesting against yellowcake. This was reported in all National newspapers at the time. See Brian MartinDisruption vs organisation Published in Social Alternatives, Vol. 2, No. 4, June 1982, pp. 42–43 The Premier Sir Charles Court proposed on 15 June 1979 that Breton Bay, 90 km north of Perth, Wilbinga, 70 km north of Perth as possible sites for a nuclear power station. On 4 July 1979 a Public Meeting was conducted jointly by CANE and FOE at the Perth Town Hall in response to the announcement.

Three speakers addressed the audience. The Government responded by attacking CANE; the West Australian newspaper on 25 August 1979 reported: "The Premier, Sir Charles Court, last night warned of a subtle new propaganda offensive against democracy. He said that the susceptibility of democratic governments to electoral pressure was being exploited as never before… Locally, mysteriously financed pressure groups were trying to force governments into irrational decisions through high powered arousal of emotions based on false evidence. Sir Charles said:'When you consider that governments make thousands of decisions a year on the basis of close-contact experience of what they are doing backed by outside top-level advice on critical matters, it is against the public interest to exchange this process for one of street-march campaigns and loaded opinion polls.'" Senator Ruth Coleman established another anti-nuclear group Women Against Uranium Mining and started collecting anti-nuclear information about nuclear acciden
