Welcome to another episode of the Bowie Book Club, where wild speculation and grasping for straws about Bowie’s favorite books has reigned supreme since 2016. This time we read a very entertaining tract about consciousness, hallucinations, poetry, religion and a crackpot theory that ties them all together - in short, what you expected to read in college as a liberal arts major. It's Julian Jayne's magnum opus - The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind.
Follow us! (Not in a creepy way)
