Connecting neuropsychology and cognitive science with Freudian theory and Jungian approaches to mythology and narrative, this text aims to show that there is an empirical connection between what neuroscience tells us about the brain/behaviour, and what rituals and myths have long narrated.
Review
"The book reflects its author's profound moral sense and vast erudition in areas ranging from clinical psychology to scripture and a good deal of personal soul-searching and experience...with patients who include prisoners, alcoholics and the mentally ill."
-Montreal Gazette
"This is not a book to be abstracted and summarized. Rather it should be read at leisure...and employed as a stimulus and reference to expand one's own maps of meaning. I plan to return to Peterson's musings and mapping many times over the next few years."
-"Am J Psychiatry
..."a brilliant enlargement of our understanding of human motivation...a beautiful work."
-Sheldon H. White, Harvard University
..."unique...a brilliant new synthesis of the meaning of mythologies and our human need to relate in story form the deep structure of our experiences."
-Keith Oatley, University of Toronto
