Description

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.

Travail titanesque

Une œuvre d'une richesse vertigineuse, d'une importance capitale pour la recherche dans ce domaine complexe qu'est la psyché humaine.
Le sujet traité est complexe donc il faut de la concentration pour suivre efficacement. L'anglais est très bien articulé. Chaque mot de chaque phrase est choisi avec précision et nous guide dans la réflexion.
Je ne peux qu'être admiratif devant ce travail gigantesque. Je recommande ce livre audio.

Brilliant Seminal Work (Figures Unreadable)

Maps of meaning is a seminal work that for the first time integrates modern scientific reasoning with the worlds of mythology, religion, psychology, neurology, and philosophy. It explains how the underlying "animal" brain of homo sapiens has become the vessel for human cognition as we now understand it; and how culture and values, even unstated and not understood by those who carry them, are transmitted and disseminated from mind to mind, across society, and through time in the evolution of culture.

For most readers who are not students of arcane mythology and theology, much of the middle part of the book is a tedious academic treatment that beats the dead horse of the author's well proven thesis, but the author should be excused for the unrelenting assault in this magnum opus as the concepts he presents are scientifically and philosophically revolutionary and "extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence".

The Audible reading is well performed by the author, but a major problem with the Audible presentation is the poor quality of the accompanying pdf diagrams, many of which contain text or detail which is simply not legible. Why not redraw the artwork with high resolution images?

PDF Available on Actual Computer

I haven't finished the book yet (will revise review), but I couldn't respond to other reviews so I'm putting the info here. I couldn't find the PDF on my phone, but managed to find it on my computer in the browser. Check your library; under "Download," it should say "View PDF."

The lectures are many times better

I've watched all of the Maps of Meaning lectures of Dr. Peterson, plus most of his lecture series on Personality; I also listened to his Twelve Rules of Life audiobook. I liked all of them, so I thought this book might inspire me even more. Nothing could be further from the truth, alas.
It's too verbose, has no coherent structure (unlike the lectures) and the chapters are ridiculously long. I mean, 11 hours for one chapter; for the audio version at least more chapters would have been helpful.
If you want to get what he's thinking and saying, watch the Maps of Meaning lecture series, all of them, and skip this book.

His narration is great though. He reads with the same passion he lectures with, and probably writes with too. I find him one of the best narrators for serious works of literature I know, judging from his reading quotes from The Gulag Archipelago, the works of Dostoyevski, Orwell, and several others. He has a real knack for that, I think because he really understands those works and therefore knows which words to emphasize, where to sound appalled or angry, where to raise or lower his volume, etc. If he would narrate those works here on Audible, I'd probably buy all of those books, knowing I would get a great understanding of the works through listening to Peterson as narrator.

Life Changing Book

Having read both this and 12 rules for life has been extremely transformative for me. As a 27 year old man, I feel like I now have a path and a guide to lead a meaningful life. I will be listening to this audiobook for many years to come. Also, I am very happy that Peterson decided to do the narration, its like he is talking to me directly. :)

Enjoyed this one thoroughly

It took a few hours to settle into the style and pace of the book. Once Jordan settled into mythic narrative references and their psychological significance, the book sped along and it was very interesting. Would definitely recommend.

Unorganized, not disorganized.

I would have thought that Peterson, considering his audience, would have divided up the two big twelve and ten hour chapters into smaller, more contained chapters. It is dizzying to listen for a while, say forty-five minutes, and then come back another day. One review here had mentioned him rambling on and on. Unfortunately, I am inclined to agree. I had high expectations of Peterson's seminal work. It seems that unless you are willing to commit the day to listening, you should not purchase this title.

Peterson transitions between ideas almost seamlessly which may leave the listener (or reader I suppose) struggling to understand his point. At times, he appears to be wandering, and while not all who wander are lost, he appears so.

The text itself is rather terse, while also engaging and makes thinking of religion and psychology together far more connected, which is much appreciated. If you are not used to meticulous levels of logical structure and development of an idea, this may not be the title for you.

The headline of this review suggests that the book was never organized properly so as to become disorganized. I would have thought that Peterson's editors and first readers would have recommended against such large chapters.

Overall, I would not recommend this book, nor would I listen to it again. I am hesitant at this point to purchase his seemingly more structured work, 12 Rules for Life.

Helped me understand why people do bad things

This is a long book that took time to get through, because I wanted to understand it. It's contains some things that are comforting. For example:

1. Some people become so consumed with despair and and arrogance that they hurt others and themselves, but there is an antidote to that.

2. Our actions can be meaningful and can decrease the misery in the world, and bring comfort to others.

3. Religion teaches us the best wisdom of the ancients, and helps us find meaningful inner peace. Religious observance is wise, not foolish.

4. Life is going to be painful, but we can do things that make pain worthwhile or easier to bear for ourselves and others.

5. Sometimes a system of order can get too rigid or tyranical, but a hero can give up his comfort and go find a way to help heal the system. It will take courage and the cost will be high, but it can make the order whole again.

This book is full of wonderful things to know. It articulates the timeless value of ancient stories. It reaffirms the power of transcendent faith, which faith helps people grow and change for the better. It encourages me to more boldly seek to help build faith in the people around me.

Shocking. Shockingly good. Holy...

Jordan Peterson says this work is a tough read. I beg to differ.

After churning though what feels like ancient tomes of philosophy for the past months, listening to this feels absolutely exhilarating. Lets go through some points - 1. Penned in my native language (the awkward cadence of translation is not to be found here!) 2. Succinct scientific approach to some of the most mulled over epistemology and moral, and general philosophy questions of all time. Compared to the works of Nietzsche I've combed through - though absolutely packed with brilliance - the relative ease of understanding in this book feels like thick, viscous, pure intellectual heroine!!!! I do not say this lightly!

I love how Peterson nests Psychology with it's undoubtedly kindred discipline, philosophy. As a psychology major, hearing him use the terminology I've learned really helps integrate the knowledge into my sort of "mushy grey database". Eloquently put, yeah.

Sorry, needless to say I'm a bit excited over the book. Currently I'm 6 and 1/2 hours in, and going strong. Thank you so much for this insanely erudite and lucid work! Please though, you don't need to be so humble!

Amazingly told

this definitely shook and rattled my understanding of meaning. often required me to take a pause and think, sometimes hear a chapter over again upon reflecting the contents of it. great book and thank you Jordan B. Peterson for all your work.

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.

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.

Brilliant

I have a degree in Philosophy and Psychology and I've written my final thesis about the origin of the position of nihilism and I am so to speak an student of Jung and Nietzsche as well.

I write this because I think Dr. Peterson got most things exactly right and interpreted his sources correctly. His conclusions are brilliant and his stories catching. Well written and enlightening book!
