Additional Notes

From The Publisher*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 of12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaoscomes 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 ofMeaningpresents a rich theory that makes the wisdom and meaning of myth accessible to the critical modern mind.
