Prof. Jerry Kroth introduces the idea of that the dark side of the human condition: war, genocides, tyrannies, terrorism, nuclear Armageddon may actually have an antidote. Is it possible we have a psychic immune system which operates outside of consciousness just like the physical immune system does? Kroth travels from evolutionary psychology to neuroscience , alpha males, baboons, Jane Goodall, and Jung in search of an answer. All from his latest book just published in Sept, 2016, entitled The Psychic Immune System: a hidden epiphenomenon of the body’s own defenses (Rowman & Littlefield)
