In honor of Black History Month, Cosimo presents African Unconscious by Edward Bruce Bynum, with an introduction by Linda James Myers, as its celebrated Book of the Month.
Edward Bruce Bynum offers his viewpoint on the roots of human existence. He believes that all humans at their deepest core are variations on the African template. In effect, we possess a shared identity and collective unconscious. This magnificent work is a blend of modern and ancient psychology that provides a relevant backdrop to humanity and our daily life. Looking at phenotypes and psychic structures that form and identify us as human beings, this book is ideal for psychologists and those interested in African American art and culture.
