Pub. Date: 01/28/1999
Publisher: Teachers College Press
In what is being praised as an epic work and a unique contribution to the dialogue on African diasporic studies and the African origin of civilization, psychologist Edward Bruce Bynum has elegantly crafted a work which is truly groundbreaking and monumental in The African Unconscious: Roots of Ancient Mysticism and Modern Psychology.
Drawing his documentation and research from the fields of biology, physics, history, anthropology, archaeology, mysticism, psychology, and astronomy, Dr. Bynum demonstrates how all human beings are linked through a primordial African collective unconscious. Through this collective and common African origin, the genetic, psychic, spiritual, and cultural origins of our species are traceable in spite of apparent differences between peoples based on "race," language, cultural style, spirituality, and geographic location.
As a new millennium approaches this book will undoubtedly have far-reaching significance and applicability. In our quest to better the world in which we live new paradigms will be needed which offer bold new insights and ideas. Dr. Bynum's research on the African collective unconscious provides a starting point through which the wisdom of the ages contained within it can be unleashed for the betterment of humanity.
