I've literally only seen söÿ pseuds express the slightest respect for this garbage book. It's like Fraser or Campbell in that respect, smoothbrain faux-intellectualism that no actual scholar takes remotely seriously.

Tardbros, *any* source will tell you that. You can even look it up on their Wikipedia pages. The Golden Bough for example was *never* accepted among serious scholars, and now less than ever. Likewise, Jaynes contradicts basic facts of neurology and history alike.

Not even the same anon, this is just pathetic.

it's a fascinating little book if you don't take it too seriously and approach it with an open mind

can't believe that this kind of appeal-to-authority idiocy happens on a board devoted to what's supposed to be an intellectual topic. "serious scholars" generally reject anything that contradicts their pre-conceived notions because they're human just like the rest of us. peer review sting ops have proven that the academics aren't some bastion of objectivity, they're just as biased as the common man. look at the history of sociobiology/evolutionary psychology, and you see it plain as day. the aforementioned field is literally just ethology (study of animal behavior as adaptive traits) applied to humans (animals like any other). the tabula rasa concept is incompatible with any decent understanding of biology, yet it persists, because the notion of inherent potential and tendency scares them like it does most people. "serious scholars" aren't divinely inspired and you're ignorant for deferring to them instead of referring to the facts
