Summary:
"This book demonstrates how the experts in the cognitive sciences, including all fields of anthropology, misrepresent how symbols affect the neurological processes of the human brain. The author shows that the traditional belief that symptoms are inferior to symbols is erroneous, and that this belief has caused unspeakable cruelty and conflict the world over. The book details how, although traditional scholarship maintains that thinking symptomatically obstructs our ability to reach the root cause of problems, nothing could be further from the truth. The author brilliantly details how that mistaken understanding of the dynamics between symbols and symptoms has caused a confusion that impedes authentic and healthy behavior, leading to destructive decisions that have produced unparalleled harm in today's world. This book displays the destructive nature of symbolic thought and how that symbolic thought has affected human behavior in every area of human activity"--Provided by publisher.
