We’re talking about Books That Make You realize, in our depths, we are all African. Are we a species at war with itself? What does our African unconscious reveal about all of us?
Dr. Edward Bruce Bynum is Sunday September 19th Books That Make You guest. He urges people to come together in his new book Our African Unconscious: The Black Origins of Mysticism and Psychology. According to Linda James Myers, Ph.D “What Bynum has accomplished in pulling together such a mammoth body of knowledge and research into one cogent volume and theme is remarkable…. A contribution of this magnitude seldom comes once in a decade.”
Author Edward Bruce Bynum offers a captivating and controversial viewpoint on the roots of our human existence, positing that all humans at their deepest core are variations on the African template, creating a shared identity and collective unconscious in all. He looks at both phenotypical types and psychic structures that form and identify us as human beings. Ideal for humanistic and transpersonal psychologists and those interested in African American art and culture, The African Unconscious is a blend of modern and ancient psychology that provides a relevant backdrop to humanity and our daily life. “I read with awe this passionate, brilliant, epic work. It is one of the most exhaustive and revealing studies of Black and human origins I have ever seen.” -Lee S. Sannella, M.D
Science, evolution, and deep religion all point us in the same direction. Ultimately, we must love each other or die.
