The year 2018 marks a new year and a new book for discussion for the Merritt Island chapter of Passionate Rational Objectivists Promoting Exuberant Living(PROPEL):

"At the heart of theJulian Jaynesclassic, seminal book,The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind, is the author's still-controversial thesis that human consciousness did not begin far back in animal evolution but instead is a learned process that came about only three thousand years ago and is still developing. The implications of this revolutionary scientific paradigm extend into virtually every aspect of our psychology, our history and culture, our religion -- and indeed our future." -- Paraphrased from Amazon

Fans of Ayn Rand will enjoy this thought-provoking book as a supplement to her essay "The Missing Link" inPhilosophy: Who Needs It.

As usual, we will follow each monthly discussion with dinner at Ruby Tuesday.

PLEASE RSVP FOR THIS EVENT. WE PLAN TO MEET IN THE YOGURT SHOP SO CALL THE ORGANIZER AT HIS CELL PHONE AT (321) 544-7435 IF YOU HAVE TROUBLE FINDING US.
