From the author of 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos comes a provocative hypothesis that explores the connection between what modern neuropsychology tells us about the brain and what rituals, myths, and religious stories have long narrated. A cutting-edge work that brings together neuropsychology, cognitive science, and Freudian and Jungian approaches to mythology and narrative, Maps of Meaning presents a rich theory that makes the wisdom and meaning of myth accessible to the critical modern mind.
Intense but worth it

This was a great in-depth journey through the psychoanalytic perspective. Peterson is greatly influenced by Jung (among others like Nietsche, Goethe, Dostoevsky, Biblical corpus etc.) and this book weaves its way through several of the sources of Jung’s, and in turn Peterson’s, thinking: Affective Neuroscience, Mythology, Religion, Alchemy, etc. It left me with more questions than answers, as any great book does, but it provided me with a framework through which seeking these answers (but first: formulating the right questions) is most achievable: that of the exploratory hero. Thanks Dr. Peterson! (And I wish you the best in your current recovery from poor health).
