Hypnosis in the Theory of the Bicameral Mind

Edoardo Casiglia
The Jaynesian, 2008, Volume 2, Issue 1.


At every induction the hypnotist is more amazed than the hypnotized about how easy and how rapid it is to induce modified consciousness, that special interpersonal relationship which - whether right or wrong - we call "hypnotic trance." We might wonder why humans are so predisposed as to enter such a state only on the request of another. It is my opinion that this question cannot be answered without taking into account anthropological reflections.
