Jordan Peterson began work on the book Maps of Meaning (MoM) back in 1985 and the book was published in 1999.
A free pdf copy of the book is available here: Maps of Meaning PDF
MoM book page at Peterson’s website: Maps of Meaning
For two decades, Peterson ran a course by that name at the University of Toronto. The 13-part lecture series based on the book was broadcast by TVOntario in 2004. Since then, there have been a few versions of his course available on YouTube.
The 2004 TVO lecture series begins here: 1 Monsters of Our Own Making
(28 minutes, with text and graphics edited into the lecture video, 13 lectures in all)
The latest (2017) version of the lectures is currently linked to at Peterson’s MoM page and the videos start here:
2017 Maps of Meaning 1: Context and Background
(2.5 hours, without editing, 12 lectures in all)
Peterson recently made an audio version of the book which he hopes will make it more accessible.
A sample of the reading is here: 23 minutes from Maps of Meaning
Further resources as they become available …
Slaying the Dragon Within us (2002 Big Ideas talk, 56 mins, good introduction to the MoM lecture series)

From the above article, the warrior face of Bolelli:
He’s pretty “hot” (as they say these days) for a man in his early 40s.
I will collect here any short essays or book chapters that address this question, starting with this one:
André Comte-Sponville: What is Philosophy?
Here is the essay that has mainly been my guide in determining what is PhiloSophia:
Wilfred Cantwell Smith: Philosophia as One of the Religious Traditions of Humankind
Here is a clean pdf copy of this short (1k words) essay:
Alan Watts: The Finger and the Moon
There is a lot of material on Watts on the web, but I would recommend the film made by Watts’ son Mark:
Alan Watts – Why not now ? (2014)
The Wisdom of Alan Watts in Four Thought-Provoking Animations
The Dream of Life
This was the very first topic offered by PhiloSophia and then again by FiloSofia and then again …
Quod Est Veritas? Christ and Pilate, by Nikolai Ge.
Here are notes that I prepared in support of the theme:
These are text only notes that can be printed up two-sided on one A4 page to make a little booklet: what-is-truth-text-booklet
Here is the simple onscreen version: what-is-truth-text-onscreen
This one is a commentary around the Ge painting, that can form a booklet as above: what-is-truth-colour-booklet
And here is the plain version: what-is-truth-colour-onscreen
Some years later, I found a partial answer in modern French phenomenology:
Michel Henry: I am the Truth – Chapters 1 and 2
Having recently become acquainted with Iain McGilchrist’s The Master and his Emissary, I would now see Pilate as representing the left hemisphere and Jesus the right. They are even placed that way in Ge’s painting and the centrepiece is Pilate’s right hand which is controlled by his left hemisphere.
This is clearly an archetypal theme. I’m still researching it and will probably do so indefinitely.
