Inhaltsangabe

Jordan B. Peterson's Maps of Meaning is now available for the first time as an audio download!  

Why have people from different cultures and eras formulated myths and stories with similar structures? What does this similarity tell us about the mind, morality, and structure of the world itself? 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.

Includes a PDF of Images from the book.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Unbelievable

This book is an absolute masterpiece. Also, it is way more accessible as an audio version. It is one hell of a book, but unspeakably helpful to create heaven on earth (speaking as an atheist)!

One of my favourites

I'm kind of a fan since his appearance at the H3H3 podcast.
This and his other book "12 rules for life" really go in depth and I recommend reading both / listening to both.

Even tho I bought the book physically - I enjoyed listening to the author reading the book. He really emphasizes on things that seem important to him.

Unfassbar

Peterson hat nach eigener Aussage jeden Satz mindesten 50 mal neu geschrieben und das merkt man auch. Nahezu jeder Satz enthält so viel Informationen das man, verliert man auch nur kurz die Aufmerksamkeit, unfassbar wichtige Dinge verpasst.

Ich hab schon 12 Rules vor Life 5 mal gehört, dieses Buch werde ich wohl 10 mal hören müssen.
Aber es lohnt sich.
Für die "westlichen" Menschen unserer Zeit gibt kein wertvolleres Buch.

New perspective

JBP is a man not always easy to understand. As a non English native speaker some examples of professional psychology stuff are pretty tough.

After having seen hours of his discussions on YouTube and after finishing his 12 rules for life (easier to comprehend) now maps of meaning gives a profound answer to the question whether he believes in god or is a Christian. If more religious people or "dogma members" adapted his style of a religious life, I would be a lot concerned about the world.
What really amazes me is his style of integration: it is not culminating in a "we against them"; almost every culture has contributed something of worth that can be integrated in this view which does not consider others and older generations as primitive and stupid.

Some people might criticize is style of citing people like C G Jung (and others) over and over again, reading lots of Bible verses and discussing alchemy.
Personally, I liked the interpretations of different narratives a lot.

When one thinks about meaning of life and what we should do here, JBP does a good job for people who can handle his eloquence and keep up with attention (not easy).
People who have always hated interpretation in school (" what does the author mean by XY?") might make their peace since almost everything comes readily interpreted (still to reflect on by oneself!).

I recommend this book to all individuals, who want to grow and thrive in this world, knowing that it won't be a a party all the time.

Dense with brilliant insights

Definitely not an overview, a scholarly work on the human mind, its motivation and its fears

Zu langatmig

ich schätze Jordan Peterson sehr und verfolge seine Inhalte auf Youtube - aber dies Hörbuch habe ich auch nach dreimaligen Anfangen nicht durchgehalten. Er sollte sich etwas kürzer fassen und weniger ausschweifend schildern. Schade für mich, denn das Thema interessiert mich...

Worst voice ever

Great content
Unbearable voice
Why did the editor not choose a professional speaker?
Otherwise good book
