In identifying the root cause to this issue, Peterson embarks on a quest that spans over a large body of human knowledge, including psychology, philosophy and religious phenomenology, particularly emphasizing the myth and its archetypal characters as patterns of the human behaviour. Comparing Hegel and Peterson we find many correspondences.
Jordan Peterson's poignant and critical thoughts about modernity and modern society. The story of Scaredy Squirrel is a fun illustration of what Peterson was talking about, I actually flipped to the front to see if he had authored it. In Jungian psychology, hero identification has pathological consequences. Abstract: Entropy, a concept derived from thermodynamics and information theory, describes the amount of uncertainty and disorder within a system. None of this would've happened if Christianity was truly Gnostic. What's most refreshing about this book is that it's not pushing a particular ideology.

This book is difficult and may take a long time to read, but I am having a much easier time of it watching the lectures and reading the book alongside it and taking notes on each. But this a Manichean article of faith. Maps of Meaning is about the fundamental levels of the human psyche. In 2013, 29-year-old Edward Snowden shocked the world when he broke with the American intelligence establishment and revealed that the United States government was secretly pursuing the means to collect every single phone call, text message, and email.

Dr Peterson teaches an undergrad course based on this text that only has a couple of second year psych courses as prerequisites, so I figured I should be well-prepared to study, and understand, the book's contents.
