This text connects two worlds that do not often meet - that of neuropsychology and cognitive science with Freudian theory and Jungian approaches to mythology and narrative. Peterson shows the reader that there is an empirical connection between what technologically sophisticated neuroscience tells us about the brain and behaviour, and what ritual, myths, and religious stories have long narrated. This connection has applications that play a key role in understanding human emotions and motivations for social conflict.
