Maps of Meaning The Architecture of Belief

review Maps of Meaning The Architecture of Belief Ö eBook or Kindle ePUB Jordan B. Peterson ó 3 review Provocative new 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 togeth. When I first discovered Jordan Peterson last summer some months before his embroilment in the political controversy at the University of Toronto which made him a folk hero among the liberal right I was first struck by some of the similarities between his intellectual journey as he describes it and my own Like me Peterson earned a bachelor s degree in political science but found himself unsatisfied with the exclusively materialist models of political behavior which seem to dominate the discipline He became convinced as I did that in the uest to discover the material preconditions of socio political life the social sciences have lost sight of the degree to which material realities and indeed the very concept of reality The World as apprehended by human consciousness are a derivation of that seemingly supernatural nexus of meaning called the human being To say that political life is dominated exclusively by material self interest and arbitrary lust for power is simply bad anthropology and any political theory if it is to hold water must account first for the profound self excessiveness of human life as the fulcrum of our shared existence in polity or else trade only in platitudes and superficialities superficialities which if sufficiently internalized and elevated to the status of dogma by would be champions of progress can wreak havoc on the social order Peterson having turned to psychology and perhaps regarding it as ueen of the anthropological disciplines as theology was once ueen of the sciences regards extreme political ideologies like fascism and communism as collective manifestations of psychopathology Their appeal comes from their telling part and only part of a compelling mythopoeic story compelling because it reflects and invokes certain elements of the evolved and thus universal structures of value and meaning in the human psyche Their insidiousness lies in their inherently violent propensity for rigid and pharisaical commitment to the assertion of what is essentially an isolated fragment of human value experience over and above all others degrading and damaging the fullness of the human personality in the process Their political violence is an expression of a violently disrupted psychological euilibrium With murderous force Hitler and Stalin tried to sueeze reality into a cramped and distorted ideological box Reality prevailed of course but not before hundreds of millions of lives were snuffed out This is the danger of making an idol of a partial superficial truth Peterson would use the language of Jung and Neumann by claiming that political ideologues are under the possession of archetypesA militant feminist gazes into the impenetrable abyss of objective reality and sees only a malevolent patriarchal tyranny governing human affairs A Leninist sees only class oppression A fascist sees a primordial social purity corrupted by a plague of degeneracy These are radical simplifications of reality little ideational shelters in which the anxious can take refuge amidst the howling wilderness of the unknown which is truth the impossibly vast uroboric ring of chaos surrounding the cosmos the cosmos being the enclave of meaning value carved out of this pandemonium by human consciousness Simply put these ideologies are projections and the projectors are fixated on half truths The father can be tyrannical in his negative aspect but in his positive aspect he can be a benevolent protector and guide The outsider might be a threat to social cohesion but he could also be an emissary of light renewing the society he enters by bringing new insight from beyond the realm of established knowledge To understand the nature of the whole man one must understand that human beings view reality most fundamentally as forum for action rather than as place of things Modern empirical science which has or less successfully disentangled word concepts from material objects is a new and hard won development in our intellectual history The world of men was and remains in better part a world of meaning value and utility Things are regarded not as they really are but rather in terms of their significance for human life The great religious and mythological systems are not simply na ve theories of empirical science They are better described as formulas for action navigational charts of subjective valuation for the knower who straddles the line between known and unknown I m tempted to call them maps of meaning but I can t remember where that s from I hope this book has found its moment and that it can serve as an exorcist s manual for our apocalyptic demon haunted age

review Maps of Meaning The Architecture of Belief Ö eBook or Kindle ePUB Jordan B. Peterson ó 3 review 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 Jordan Peterson offers a. A few weeks ago my three year old daughter and I went to the library to check out some books Usually she heads right to the section with Curious George while I peruse the kids books looking for new and fun stories Lately she s been randomly grabbing books off the shelf and declaring she wants them Surprisingly they are usually uite good I don t recall if she grabbed it or if I did but we ended up with Scaredy SuirrelWe took it home and read it It was hilarious Poor Scaredy Suirrel is terrified to leave his safe tree and journey into the unknown He has all sorts of contingency plans for when and if he is threatened Of course when a bee flies by he forgets all his plans and dives out of his tree for safetyA funny kids book and nothing right Well at the same time we got this book I was working on Jordan Peterson s Maps of Meaning A good chunk of his book is about how humans live in the midst of two worlds the known and the unknown We learn and grow by encountering the unknown as scary as it is The story of Scaredy Suirrel is a fun illustration of what Peterson was talking about I actually flipped to the front to see if he had authored itI first heard of Peterson s book from a friend My friend reads a ton of books and has introduced me to many great writers On Facebook a while back he shared the ten most influential books he had read and this was one of them I added it to my list When I finally got a copy and set out to read it was a challenging and delightful feast Peterson draws on various fields from science to religion He brings them all to bear on his field psychology in a discussion of how mythology the stories we tell influence how we view the world To put it another way none of us sees the world objectively as if the world is just objects out there which we all perceive Instead we inherit maps of meaning from our ancestors which shape how we see the worldThere is a lot of good in this book The only drawback is that it could have been concise as Peterson tends to repeat himself and ramble at times Overall though this is a fantastic book

Peterson ó 3 review Inspired by the infamously titled video 'PhD gives up trying to reason with SJWs' I went down the rabbit hole of Dr Jordan Peterson's poignant and critical thoughts about modernity and modern society Unlike many modern academics Peterson deviates from the commonality of Marxist thinking in relation to postmodern interdisciplinary studies Instead of subscribing to the belief that economics is the root of the modern human condition
