AFRICAN AMERICAN BEHAVIORAL SCIENTIST CONTINUES GROUNDBREAKING WORK


New York, NY --  Today's domestic and global conflicts have continuing threads that underlie them, not the least of which are issues over religion and race. These issues are informed by one enduring ingredient: symbolism.

Human behavior expert Edgar J. Ridley has added to his groundbreaking Golden Apple series examining the impact of symbols on human behavior. With the publication of his new work, The Golden Apple: Changing the Structure of Civilization - Volume 3 - Aftermath (available on Amazon), Ridley provides the capstone to the continuing critique of man's barbaric behavior, from antiquity to the present, and the reliance on symbolic thought to the detriment of symptomatic thought.

Ridley's discovery, the Symptomatic Thought Press® is expanded in this Volume 3 to address man's propensity for magical thinking, leading to the inability to face reality. Ridley states, "History cannot be told correctly unless we understand how homo sapiens, in antiquity, transitioned from symptomatic behavior to symbolic behavior, creating racism, superstition, and mythology in the world's cultures."
