Jordan Peterson is obviously not an idiot But he continuously repeats himself like one He doesn't need as many words as he uses People seem intimidated by the length of the book and literally say It can't be summarized Here's a summaryHumans are animals and animals have systems that help them navigate the world Humans create a model of the world Things that go according to the model are considered good or at least not terrifying Things that don't go according to the model are the fucking worst Why Because everything that can go wrong will go wrong is baked into our brains This creates the primordial bifurcation of Order and ChaosHumans being the most advanced animal has to integrate these models between people spatially and overtime in order to survive They have to filter out a great deal of noise too This creates culture All cultures are fundamentally constrained and shaped by the model of the mind above What's the evidence for this Cultures keep saying the same damn thing over and over again or at least given enough time a culture will say the same thing as another cultureNow culture by connecting humans spatially and temporally promises peace and the fulfillment of goals of the individuals within the culture This is great until something threatens the culture outsiders new or antithetical value systems for example When these threats arrive people will do anything they can to protect the culture Hence the NazisLiterally hence the Nazis That's the entire point of the book Why did the Nazis do what they did Because of these traits that trace themselves back to the basic nature of humanityThere's also a bunch of crazy shit in here copped from Jung and then expanded on Also Campbell Also the Bible Anyways the book never is like What if I'm wrong It purely postulates things and does not try to defend itself against any critiues Honestly this is a waste of time to read I think Peterson will probably get a book deal in the next five years and he'll get a graduate student or assistant to just make a concise sensical version of this Hell there's probably a Lobster hat wearing Canadian writing up a shorter 100 200 page version of it right nowRead that one

Jordan B. Peterson ´ 2 Summary

Maps of Meaning The Architecture of BeliefMeaning The PDF #8608 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 pro. In Maps of Meaning The Architecture of Belief Jordan Peterson attempts to explain the neuropsychological phenomenological and behavioral basis of mythological imagery while trying to encourage the reader towards the behavioral path of “heroic” explorationPeterson argues that the empirical worldview representing the world as “a place of things” that can be objectively tested and validated by multiple observers is not how human beings primarily experience reality or how they decide to behave He instead posits that all human beings primarily experience reality through the phenomenological worldview; a representation of the world as “a forum for action” composed of known territory areas of experience where you know where you are what you want and what to do to get what you want unknown territory areas of experience that indicate you don’t fully know where you are what you want or what to do to get what you want and the individual as they experience navigation within and between these two territories voluntarily andor involuntarily These pre empirical representations structure all human behavior according to Peterson and were what the archaic minds of the past attempted to document in their mythologies Peterson then attempts to establish a stable neuropsychological basis for these irreducible aspects of phenomenological experience In essence he makes the case that various functions of the brain support the initial claim that all human beings categorize known and unknown territory in ways consistent with mythological representation and can voluntarily recategorize experiential anomalies can transform “‘the unknown and terrifying world’ into the comfortable productive and familiar” through cautious exploratory behavior Once Peterson establishes these foundational claims he then spends the rest of the book presenting his interpretive framework of how the interplay between “the unknown the known and the knower” appears in various mythic imagerymotifs taken from different cultures and time periods and what implications these recurring themes should have on human behavior His fundamental conclusion Two phenomenological options constantly war for human embodiment via behavior and representation arrogant yet cowardly childish omniscience or humble yet courageous mature inuiry In other words you can either choose to ignore anomalies anything you don’t expectunderstand including your mistakes or you can cautiously approach anomalies until you successfully attain resourcesbehaviorsrealistic desires that get you what you want To Peterson these options constitute the mythic battle between good and evil – and Peterson argues that it is in your best interest to be goodAll of Peterson’s major claims and conclusions however need to be assessed for their degree of truth before they are fullypartially adopted by the reader Arguably the most important uestion is whether a ualitative difference between empirical and phenomenological approaches to reality exists and as an important follow up uestion whether the phenomenological approach takes involuntary precedence over the empirical approach The ualitatively distinct and predominant nature of phenomenology seems self evident once reminded of the inevitable and necessary value judgments human beings make between objectssituations whenever they choose to behave – all action implies that one outcome is better than another However this framework of valuation cannot be provided by the indifferent empirical description of objects which David Hume popularly observed with his “is ought problem” Phenomenology then appears to be the a priori approach to all human behavior an approach where subjectivity and objectivity are implicitly conflated in order to identify what should be avoided or approached The empirical facts Peterson uses to support his hypothesis of how the human brain structures experience seems scientifically valid and reliable as indicated in large part by the amount of scientific articles studies he references whenever making claims about how the brain functions on a neuropsychological level Once these two claims are established as reasonable and most likely true it seems reasonable to state that any representation of reality that attempts to claim what should be valued or what should be done must be viewed primarily as a phenomenological representation and therefore should primarily be judged by its success at helping human beings attain what they subjectively want and not by how empirically accurate it is Ancient mythological motifs that appear repeatedly across cultures and over long time spans are therefore the most “phenomenologically successful” and therefore likely still informguide successful human behavior This means that Peterson’s interpretive framework of what behavioral phenomenological patterns are consistently represented in mythology are at least partially true – and true enough to take seriously The significance of this book cannot easily be overstated Peterson effectively creates a compelling and nearly irrefutable argument for the importance of mythology in guiding human behavior as well as providing a coherent framework that can be used to begin extracting practical phenomenologicalbehavioral principles from ancient and contemporary myths that can otherwise be dismissed as empirical fiction Further he claims that destabilizing social manifestations of totalitarianism nihilism and decadence are the ultimately the result of the evil behaviors of the experiencing individual evil being defined as the cowardly failure to learn from errors and strange new phenomena – he lays the responsibility of the world’s insanity at the feet of the reader He also provides a solution continually expose yourself to what you don’t knowunderstand in order to learn from it or alternatively continually engage in activities you experience as meaningful since the subjective sense of meaning “accompanies the honest pursuit of the unknown in a direction and at a rate subjectively determined” Successful adaptation to the unknown and the sense of meaning experienced while this process occurs will steer you away from nihilistic or decadent behavior and will lead to adaptive behaviors and paradigms that will initially conflict with the traditional patterns of society which prevents totalitarianism and eventually lead to societal updates in behaviorresourcesvalues since your consistent success in situations that terrify most other people will lead others to imitate your behavior in those situations updating perception on what needs to be done and what is truly valuable to pursue Peterson therefore offers a call to action if you become a hero you will truly save the world
