50 - Dr. Richard Haier: The Neuroscience of Intelligence
1:25:20
<p><span>There is almost nothing more important to understand about people than intelligence. It can be measured more accurately than anything else in the social sciences. It differs tremendously and importantly between individuals. It is the single most important determinant of life success.</span></p> <p><span> It's very existence, however, remains subject to substantive debate, most of it highly politicized. Dr. Richard Haier has recently written a major book on the topic, The Neuroscience of Intelligence (</span><a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" spellcheck="false" href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?q=http%3A%2F%2Famzn.to%2F2em55A9&amp;event=video_description&amp;v=PY4sShDt9to&amp;redir_token=LmX9-BLC8j2TXWxndGVr4XEYkx98MTUyNzYxMDM5MkAxNTI3NTIzOTky">http://amzn.to/2em55A9</a><span>), summarized in the following manner: "This book introduces new and provocative neuroscience research that advances our understanding of intelligence and the brain. Compelling evidence shows that genetics plays a more important role than environment as intelligence develops from childhood, and that intelligence test scores correspond strongly to specific features of the brain assessed with neuroimaging. </span></p> <p><span>In understandable language, Richard J. Haier explains cutting-edge techniques based on genetics, DNA, and imaging of brain connectivity and function. He dispels common misconceptions, such as the belief that IQ tests are biased or meaningless, and debunks simple interventions alleged to increase intelligence. " We recently spent an hour and a half talking about such things. </span></p> <p><span>For more information about Dr. Haier, see: </span><a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" spellcheck="false" href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?q=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.richardhaier.com%2F&amp;event=video_description&amp;v=PY4sShDt9to&amp;redir_token=LmX9-BLC8j2TXWxndGVr4XEYkx98MTUyNzYxMDM5MkAxNTI3NTIzOTky">http://www.richardhaier.com/</a></p> <p>12 Rules for Life Tour: <a href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/events/">https://jordanbpeterson.com/events/</a></p> <p>My new book: 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos: <a href="https://exit.sc/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fjordanbpeterson.com%2F12-rules-for-life%2F" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="http://jordanbpeterson.com/12-rules-for-life/">jordanbpeterson.com/12-rules-for-life/</a></p> <p><a href="https://exit.sc/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fjordanbpeterson.com%2F12-rules-for-life%2F" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="http://jordanbpeterson.com/12-rules-for-life/"></a>Audiobook now available for Maps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief: <a href="https://exit.sc/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fjordanbpeterson.com%2Fmaps-of-meaning%2F" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="http://jordanbpeterson.com/maps-of-meaning/">jordanbpeterson.com/maps-of-meaning/</a></p> <p>Dr Jordan B Peterson Website: <a href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/">jordanbpeterson.com/</a></p> <p>Self Authoring Suite: <a href="https://selfauthoring.com/">selfauthoring.com/</a><br />Understand Myself personality test: <a href="https://www.understandmyself.com/">understandmyself.com/</a><br />Podcast: <a href="https://exit.sc/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fjordanbpeterson.com%2Fjordan-b-peterson-podcast%2F" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="http://jordanbpeterson.com/jordan-b-peterson-podcast/">jordanbpeterson.com/jordan-b-peterson-podcast/</a><br />Reading List: <a href="https://exit.sc/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fjordanbpeterson.com%2Freading-list%2Fgreat-books%2F" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="http://jordanbpeterson.com/reading-list/great-books/">jordanbpeterson.com/reading-list/great-books/</a><br />Twitter: <a href="https://exit.sc/?url=http%3A%2F%2Ftwitter.com%2Fjordanbpeterson" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="http://twitter.com/jordanbpeterson">twitter.com/jordanbpeterson</a><br />Patreon: <a href="https://exit.sc/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.patreon.com%2Fjordanbpeterson" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="http://www.patreon.com/jordanbpeterson">www.patreon.com/jordanbpeterson</a></p>

<p>I came across Dr. Warren Farrell's work a few years ago, when I read Why Men Earn More(<a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?event=video_description&amp;v=v5O_FLUWYmg&amp;q=https%3A%2F%2Famzn.to%2F2HX3Epj&amp;redir_token=eQmBODuJLeReve33HwzB5ybb6W58MTUyNTg3NTI0OEAxNTI1Nzg4ODQ4">https://amzn.to/2HX3Epj</a>), a careful study of the many reasons for the existence of the "gender pay gap," attributed by ideologues of the identity-politics persuasion to systemic patriarchal prejudice and oppression. Farrell has recently published another book, The Boy Crisis (<a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?event=video_description&amp;v=v5O_FLUWYmg&amp;q=https%3A%2F%2Famzn.to%2F2wnApuy&amp;redir_token=eQmBODuJLeReve33HwzB5ybb6W58MTUyNTg3NTI0OEAxNTI1Nzg4ODQ4">https://amzn.to/2wnApuy</a>) with Dr. John Gray. We spent an intense 90 minutes discussing the crucial role played by fathers in child development, paying particular attention to play and delay of gratification. Dr. Farrell has been a target of radical left activists, who object to the conflict between his careful analysis and their unidimensional ideology. You can see an example of this here, at the University of Toronto: <a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?event=video_description&amp;v=v5O_FLUWYmg&amp;q=https%3A%2F%2Fbit.ly%2F1eS5yHe&amp;redir_token=eQmBODuJLeReve33HwzB5ybb6W58MTUyNTg3NTI0OEAxNTI1Nzg4ODQ4">https://bit.ly/1eS5yHe</a></p> <p><strong>Links</strong></p> <ul> <li>Why Men Earn More: <a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?event=video_description&amp;v=v5O_FLUWYmg&amp;q=https%3A%2F%2Famzn.to%2F2HX3Epj&amp;redir_token=eQmBODuJLeReve33HwzB5ybb6W58MTUyNTg3NTI0OEAxNTI1Nzg4ODQ4">https://amzn.to/2HX3Epj</a></li> <li>The Boy Crisis: <a href="https://amzn.to/2wnApuy">https://amzn.to/2wnApuy</a></li> <li>Maps of Meaning (New Audiobook out June 12th): <a href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/maps-of-meaning/">Maps of Meaning Page</a></li> <li>12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos: <a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/12-rules-for-life/">https://jordanbpeterson.com/12-rules-...</a></li> <li>Self Authoring Suite: <a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://www.selfauthoring.com">http://selfauthoring.com/</a></li> <li>Understand Myself personality test: <a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://www.understandmyself.com">http://understandmyself.com/</a></li> <li>Podcast: <a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/jordan-b-peterson-podcast/">https://jordanbpeterson.com/jordan-b-...</a></li> <li>Reading List: <a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/books/great-books/">https://jordanbpeterson.com/2017/10/g...</a></li> <li>Twitter: <a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="http://twitter.com/jordanbpeterson">https://twitter.com/jordanbpeterson</a></li> <li>Patreon: <a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="http://patreon.com/jordanbpeterson">https://www.patreon.com/jordanbpeterson</a></li> </ul>

45 - Australia's John Anderson & Dr. Jordan B Peterson: In Conversation
1:24:12
<p><span>I was in Australia in mid-March of 2018, speaking in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne. While I was there, I had the privilege of speaking to former Deputy Prime Minister John Anderson (Facebook: </span><a href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?q=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fjohnandersonao%2F&amp;event=video_description&amp;v=U4NijLf3M-A&amp;redir_token=QjNk4K8tywaSvLQ-iyW6kT1svdp8MTUyNDgzNzYwM0AxNTI0NzUxMjAz" class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string">https://www.facebook.com/johnandersonao/</a><span>), who is described accurately on Wikipedia as "handsome, well-educated and well-spoken." Mr. Anderson introduced one of my Australian lectures. We also had the opportunity to talk together for a few hours, and to complete this interview. We discussed many things -- responsibility, freedom, meaning in life, the polarization of viewpoints in the West, the ideological use of language and identity politics. It seems to me that the sensible fiscal policies Mr. Anderson pursued during his governmental tenure in Australia constitute a model for good governance in the West.</span></p> <p><span></span>Mr. Anderson has started a conversation series, where he discusses important philosophical, political and cultural issues.

The magazine has quickly become a highly respected outlet for open discussion of topics in psychology and the social and behavioral sciences. </span></p> <p><span>Claire was studying forensic psychology at the graduate level but decided that she could contribute more to the general scientific discussion as a journalist.

Soh) to James Damore's controversial memo "Google's Ideological Echo Chamber". The website was temporarily shut down by a DDoS attack following publication of the piece.” </span></p> <p><span>Claire stated, during our discussion: “I didn’t think that any standard journalistic outlet would publish the material, scientific or otherwise, that I considered valuable and appropriate. The best places for scientific journalism won’t go near anything that contradicts very strong left-wing narratives such as the reality of stereotype threat (a literature severely criticized in </span><a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?event=video_description&amp;v=OUs72-WqmwI&amp;q=http%3A%2F%2Fbit.ly%2F2oVINv6&amp;redir_token=XYZXcoY-wgar_lo1nidSHwCYrlN8MTUyMDk3NzE2MkAxNTIwODkwNzYy">http://bit.ly/2oVINv6</a><span>), the validity of intelligence research, or the existence of sex differences in personality and interest.” I provided an extensive reference list with regard to the latter in the description for my video commentary on the James Damore/Google affair: </span><a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?event=video_description&amp;v=OUs72-WqmwI&amp;q=http%3A%2F%2Fbit.ly%2F2HmfIQ6&amp;redir_token=XYZXcoY-wgar_lo1nidSHwCYrlN8MTUyMDk3NzE2MkAxNTIwODkwNzYy">http://bit.ly/2HmfIQ6</a><span>). David Schmitt’s work (summarized here: </span><a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?event=video_description&amp;v=OUs72-WqmwI&amp;q=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.psychologytoday.com%2Farticles%2F201711%2Fthe-truth-about-sex-differences&amp;redir_token=XYZXcoY-wgar_lo1nidSHwCYrlN8MTUyMDk3NzE2MkAxNTIwODkwNzYy">https://www.psychologytoday.com/artic...</a><span>) is also relevant in this regard. </span></p> <p><span>We discussed the failure of psychologists to admit to, let alone identify, authoritarian tendencies on the left since the end of World War II, although there has been no shortage of work detailing those tendencies on the right. In my lab, we recently tried to rectify this with some recent as-of-yet unpublished studies making up the Master’s thesis work of my student Christine Brophy (see </span><a class="yt-simple-endpoint

</span></p> <p><span>Claire and I also discussed the danger to women (particularly mothers) as a consequence of the social-constructionist denial of the biological differences between the sexes and the practical necessity of distinguishing between “women” and “mothers” in the economic discussion, the over-emphasis on career compared to family that is characteristic of modern life, the impossibility of a high-achieving career, in general (to say nothing of managing that with the demands of motherhood), and the failure of feminism to address that impossibility in a realistic and measured manner. </span></p> <p><span>We close with a discussion of the fraudulent and politically-motivated misuse of the concept of implicit bias and the lack of evidence for success for anti-unconscious bias retraining programs, and consideration of the differences in competition strategies between males and females in the workplace and more broadly. </span></p> <p><span>One of

40 - Message to the school shooters: past, present and future
0:37:02
<p><span>I wrote in some detail and with some depth about motivation for the mass slaughter of innocents in my new book, 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos. Because of what happened all-too-recently and brutally in Parkland -- because of what keeps happening -- I thought I would read the relevant chapter (Rule 6: Put your house in perfect order before you criticize the world) and release it on YouTube and as a Podcast. I regard the mass shootings as symptomatic of the nihilism and psychological confusion that so deeply characterizes our society at the current time. </span></p> <p><span></span><span>12 Rules of Life: An Antidote to Chaos can be acquired here: </span></p> <ul> <li>Amazon US: <a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?event=video_description&amp;redir_token=8DesbKjnKtBl-MNrNRtjKvpQtVt8MTUyMDk3NjkxMUAxNTIwODkwNTEx&amp;q=http%3A%2F%2Famzn.to%2F2yvJf9L&amp;v=GYua-3JmnT4">http://amzn.to/2yvJf9L</a> </li> <li>Amazon UK: <a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?event=video_description&amp;redir_token=8DesbKjnKtBl-MNrNRtjKvpQtVt8MTUyMDk3NjkxMUAxNTIwODkwNTEx&amp;q=http%3A%2F%2Famzn.to%2F2AgWCsj&amp;v=GYua-3JmnT4">http://amzn.to/2AgWCsj</a> </li> <li>Amazon CANADA: <a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?event=video_description&amp;redir_token=8DesbKjnKtBl-MNrNRtjKvpQtVt8MTUyMDk3NjkxMUAxNTIwODkwNTEx&amp;q=http%3A%2F%2Famzn.to%2F2g2K7uQ&amp;v=GYua-3JmnT4">http://amzn.to/2g2K7uQ</a> </li> <li>Amazon AUSTRALIA: <a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?event=video_description&amp;redir_token=8DesbKjnKtBl-MNrNRtjKvpQtVt8MTUyMDk3NjkxMUAxNTIwODkwNTEx&amp;q=http%3A%2F%2Famzn.to%2F2CX7f3c&amp;v=GYua-3JmnT4">http://amzn.to/2CX7f3c</a> </li> </ul> <p>Additional relevant links:</p> <ul> <li>My Website: <a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?event=video_description&amp;redir_token=8DesbKjnKtBl-MNrNRtjKvpQtVt8MTUyMDk3NjkxMUAxNTIwODkwNTEx&amp;q=http%3A%2F%2Fjordanbpeterson.com%2F&amp;v=GYua-3JmnT4">http://jordanbpeterson.com/</a> </li> <li>Charles Joseph Website: <a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?event=video_description&amp;redir_token=8DesbKjnKtBl-MNrNRtjKvpQtVt8MTUyMDk3NjkxMUAxNTIwODkwNTEx&amp;q=http%3A%2F%2Fcharlesjoseph.ca%2F&amp;v=GYua-3JmnT4">http://charlesjoseph.ca/</a> </li> <li>Self Authoring Suite: <a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?event=video_description&amp;redir_token=8DesbKjnKtBl-MNrNRtjKvpQtVt8MTUyMDk3NjkxMUAxNTIwODkwNTEx&amp;q=http%3A%2F%2Fselfauthoring.com%2F&amp;v=GYua-3JmnT4">http://selfauthoring.com/</a> </li> <li>Understand Myself personality test: <a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?event=video_description&amp;redir_token=8DesbKjnKtBl-MNrNRtjKvpQtVt8MTUyMDk3NjkxMUAxNTIwODkwNTEx&amp;q=http%3A%2F%2Funderstandmyself.com%2F&amp;v=GYua-3JmnT4">http://understandmyself.com/</a> </li> <li>Reading List: <a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?event=video_description&amp;redir_token=8DesbKjnKtBl-MNrNRtjKvpQtVt8MTUyMDk3NjkxMUAxNTIwODkwNTEx&amp;q=https%3A%2F%2Fjordanbpeterson.com%2F2017%2F10%2Fgreat-books%2F&amp;v=GYua-3JmnT4">https://jordanbpeterson.com/2017/10/g...</a> </li> <li>Twitter: <a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?event=video_description&amp;redir_token=8DesbKjnKtBl-MNrNRtjKvpQtVt8MTUyMDk3NjkxMUAxNTIwODkwNTEx&amp;q=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitter.com%2Fjordanbpeterson&amp;v=GYua-3JmnT4">https://twitter.com/jordanbpeterson</a> </li> <li>Patreon: <a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?event=video_description&amp;redir_token=8DesbKjnKtBl-MNrNRtjKvpQtVt8MTUyMDk3NjkxMUAxNTIwODkwNTEx&amp;q=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.patreon.com%2Fjordanbpeterson&amp;v=GYua-3JmnT4">https://www.patreon.com/jordanbpeterson</a></li> </ul>

37 - Deconstruction: The Lindsay Shepherd Affair
2:05:39
<p><span>In November 2017, Wilfred Laurier University teaching assistant Lindsay Shepherd was called to a disciplinary meeting by two professors (Nathan Rambukkana and Herbert Pimlott) and one administrator (Adria Joel) to discuss her screening of a video clip from TVO's The Agenda with Steve Paikin during a class she was conducting. </span>Shepherd taped the proceedings (<a href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?q=http%3A%2F%2Fbit.ly%2F2mMPvok&amp;redir_token=0uLCh7SsZbAtQAPryeZMDe1cK3h8MTUxNTE3OTcwM0AxNTE1MDkzMzAz&amp;v=YWVmDSMl30s&amp;event=video_description" class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string">http://bit.ly/2mMPvok</a>) and released them, causing a national and international firestorm of outrage over the manner in which she was treated.</p> <p>The video clip featured me discussing the provisions of Canada's compelled speech law, Bill C16, with Professor Nicholas Matte of the Mark S Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies at the University of Toronto. During the proceedings, Shepherd was accused of breaking the law, both federal (Bill C16) and provincial, violating Wilfred Laurier's standards of conduct, and of being actively transphobic. Rambukkana compared me directly to Hitler (and Milo Yiannopoulos, to be fair), failing to recognize that what I predicted would happen in the aftermath of Bill C16 (see <a href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?q=http%3A%2F%2Fbit.ly%2F2AZqj4B&amp;redir_token=0uLCh7SsZbAtQAPryeZMDe1cK3h8MTUxNTE3OTcwM0AxNTE1MDkzMzAz&amp;v=YWVmDSMl30s&amp;event=video_description" class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string">http://bit.ly/2AZqj4B</a>) was exactly what was undertaken by the tripartite disciplinary panel he headed.</p> <p>Twenty of Rambukkana's colleagues signed a letter of support for his actions (<a href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?q=http%3A%2F%2Fbit.ly%2F2DiedjN&amp;redir_token=0uLCh7SsZbAtQAPryeZMDe1cK3h8MTUxNTE3OTcwM0AxNTE1MDkzMzAz&amp;v=YWVmDSMl30s&amp;event=video_description" class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string">http://bit.ly/2DiedjN</a>), despite the almost universal condemnation. In addition, great efforts were made by the neo-Marxist/postmodernist/critical theory ideologues to cast Shepherd as the perpetrator, as noted in Quillette (<a href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?q=http%3A%2F%2Fbit.ly%2F2l3Np0h&amp;redir_token=0uLCh7SsZbAtQAPryeZMDe1cK3h8MTUxNTE3OTcwM0AxNTE1MDkzMzAz&amp;v=YWVmDSMl30s&amp;event=video_description" class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string">http://bit.ly/2l3Np0h</a>), and the Wilfred Laurier Faculty Association president wrote this missive (<a href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?q=http%3A%2F%2Fbit.ly%2F2C9Ulm1&amp;redir_token=0uLCh7SsZbAtQAPryeZMDe1cK3h8MTUxNTE3OTcwM0AxNTE1MDkzMzAz&amp;v=YWVmDSMl30s&amp;event=video_description" class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string">http://bit.ly/2C9Ulm1</a>) decrying "the violent speech and actions that have, unfortunately, become a daily occurrence on our campuses" despite there being no evidence whatsoever for such violence.</p> <p>On December 18, Dr. Deborah MacLatchy, President and Vice-Chancellor of Wilfrid Laurier University, released a statement on the independent fact-finder's report on the Lindsay Shepherd affair, exonerating her completely, stating that the disciplinary meeting should have never occurred and indicating even that the claim of student complaint was essentially fabricated (although Dr. MacLatchy has released a statement of clarification about that: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?q=http%3A%2F%2Fbit.ly%2F2C8xWWp&amp;redir_token=0uLCh7SsZbAtQAPryeZMDe1cK3h8MTUxNTE3OTcwM0AxNTE1MDkzMzAz&amp;v=YWVmDSMl30s&amp;event=video_description" class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string">http://bit.ly/2C8xWWp</a>).</p> <p>Dr. David Haskell, Associate Professor, Digital Media and Journalism / Religion and Culture and Dr. William McNally, Associate Professor of Finance at the School of Business and Economics (both of Wilfred Laurier) joined me for this discussion (December 19), where we "deconstructed" Dr. MacLatchy's response. They are not alone at WLU, by the way, in their opposition to the ideological zealotry that has possessed their campus, and most others. Hopefully, in 2018, more professors will come to their senses and join them. Why should you care? Because this is, in truth, the state of the modern university -- and what happens there will happen everywhere five years later.</p> <p><span><strong> Additional relevant links: </strong></span></p> <p><span>My new book, 12 RULES FOR LIFE: AN ANTIDOTE TO CHAOS now available and discounted at: </span></p> <p><span>Amazon UK: Allen Lane/Penguin: </span><a href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?q=http%3A%2F%2Famzn.to%2F2AgWCsj&amp;redir_token=0uLCh7SsZbAtQAPryeZMDe1cK3h8MTUxNTE3OTcwM0AxNTE1MDkzMzAz&amp;v=YWVmDSMl30s&amp;event=video_description" class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string">http://amzn.to/2AgWCsj</a><span> </span></p> <p><span>Amazon USA: </span><a href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?q=http%3A%2F%2Famzn.to%2F2yvJf9L&amp;redir_token=0uLCh7SsZbAtQAPryeZMDe1cK3h8MTUxNTE3OTcwM0AxNTE1MDkzMzAz&amp;v=YWVmDSMl30s&amp;event=video_description" class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string">http://amzn.to/2yvJf9L</a><span> </span></p> <p><span>Amazon Canada: </span><a href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?q=http%3A%2F%2Famzn.to%2F2g2K7uQ&amp;redir_token=0uLCh7SsZbAtQAPryeZMDe1cK3h8MTUxNTE3OTcwM0AxNTE1MDkzMzAz&amp;v=YWVmDSMl30s&amp;event=video_description" class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string">http://amzn.to/2g2K7uQ</a><span> </span></p> <p><span>Dr. Jordan B Peterson Website: </span><a href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?q=http%3A%2F%2Fjordanbpeterson.com%2F&amp;redir_token=0uLCh7SsZbAtQAPryeZMDe1cK3h8MTUxNTE3OTcwM0AxNTE1MDkzMzAz&amp;v=YWVmDSMl30s&amp;event=video_description" class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string">http://jordanbpeterson.com/</a><span> </span></p> <p><span>Self Authoring Suite: </span><a href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?q=http%3A%2F%2Fselfauthoring.com%2F&amp;redir_token=0uLCh7SsZbAtQAPryeZMDe1cK3h8MTUxNTE3OTcwM0AxNTE1MDkzMzAz&amp;v=YWVmDSMl30s&amp;event=video_description" class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string">http://selfauthoring.com/</a><span> </span></p> <p><span>Understand Myself personality test: </span><a href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?q=http%3A%2F%2Funderstandmyself.com%2F&amp;redir_token=0uLCh7SsZbAtQAPryeZMDe1cK3h8MTUxNTE3OTcwM0AxNTE1MDkzMzAz&amp;v=YWVmDSMl30s&amp;event=video_description" class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string">http://understandmyself.com/</a><span> </span></p> <p><span>Podcast: </span><font color="#0000ee"><u>https://jordanbpeterson.com/jordan-b-peterson-podcast/</u></font></p> <p><span>Reading List: </span><font color="#0000ee"><u>https://jordanbpeterson.com/2017/10/great-books/</u></font></p> <p><span>Twitter: </span><a href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?q=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitter.com%2Fjordanbpeterson&amp;redir_token=0uLCh7SsZbAtQAPryeZMDe1cK3h8MTUxNTE3OTcwM0AxNTE1MDkzMzAz&amp;v=YWVmDSMl30s&amp;event=video_description" class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string">https://twitter.com/jordanbpeterson</a><span> </span></p> <p><span>Patreon: </span><a href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?q=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.patreon.com%2Fjordanbpeterson&amp;redir_token=0uLCh7SsZbAtQAPryeZMDe1cK3h8MTUxNTE3OTcwM0AxNTE1MDkzMzAz&amp;v=YWVmDSMl30s&amp;event=video_description" class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string">https://www.patreon.com/jordanbpeterson</a></p>

36 - Joseph and the Coat of Many Colors
2:45:10
<p><span>Lecture 14 in my Psychological Significance of the Biblical Stories lecture series. </span>This lecture closes 2017, and the book of Genesis. In it, I present the story of Joseph who, as the wearer of the coat of many colors, is profoundly adaptable, courageous, adaptable, merciful and just. Even in slavery -- even in prison -- he comes out triumphant, because of the strength of his character and his wisdom. Betrayed by his brothers, he acts to strengthen his family; unjustly accused by the Pharaoh's wife, he maintains his faith.</p> <p><span>My new book, 12 RULES FOR LIFE: AN ANTIDOTE TO CHAOS now available and discounted at: </span></p> <p><span>Amazon UK: Allen Lane/Penguin: </span><a href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?v=B7V8eZ1BLiI&amp;redir_token=RMMaFnl7-eLbevabpq408gcOAwd8MTUxMzk2NDQzMUAxNTEzODc4MDMx&amp;q=http%3A%2F%2Famzn.to%2F2AgWCsj&amp;event=video_description" class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string">http://amzn.to/2AgWCsj</a><span> </span></p> <p><span>Amazon USA: </span><a href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?v=B7V8eZ1BLiI&amp;redir_token=RMMaFnl7-eLbevabpq408gcOAwd8MTUxMzk2NDQzMUAxNTEzODc4MDMx&amp;q=http%3A%2F%2Famzn.to%2F2yvJf9L&amp;event=video_description" class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string">http://amzn.to/2yvJf9L</a><span> </span></p> <p><span>Amazon Canada: </span><a href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?v=B7V8eZ1BLiI&amp;redir_token=RMMaFnl7-eLbevabpq408gcOAwd8MTUxMzk2NDQzMUAxNTEzODc4MDMx&amp;q=http%3A%2F%2Famzn.to%2F2g2K7uQ&amp;event=video_description" class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string">http://amzn.to/2g2K7uQ</a><span> </span></p> <p><span>You can download a printable gift certificate (with a pre-print of the introduction) if you want to give to the book to someone as a Christmas gift: </span><a href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?v=B7V8eZ1BLiI&amp;redir_token=RMMaFnl7-eLbevabpq408gcOAwd8MTUxMzk2NDQzMUAxNTEzODc4MDMx&amp;q=http%3A%2F%2Fbit.ly%2F2CSWK1Y&amp;event=video_description" class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string">http://bit.ly/2CSWK1Y</a></p> <p><span>Additional relevant links: </span></p> <ul> <li>Dr. Jordan B Peterson Website: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?v=B7V8eZ1BLiI&amp;redir_token=RMMaFnl7-eLbevabpq408gcOAwd8MTUxMzk2NDQzMUAxNTEzODc4MDMx&amp;q=http%3A%2F%2Fjordanbpeterson.com%2F&amp;event=video_description" class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string">http://jordanbpeterson.com/</a></li> <li>Self Authoring Suite: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?v=B7V8eZ1BLiI&amp;redir_token=RMMaFnl7-eLbevabpq408gcOAwd8MTUxMzk2NDQzMUAxNTEzODc4MDMx&amp;q=http%3A%2F%2Fselfauthoring.com%2F&amp;event=video_description" class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string">http://selfauthoring.com/</a></li> <li>Understand Myself personality test: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?v=B7V8eZ1BLiI&amp;redir_token=RMMaFnl7-eLbevabpq408gcOAwd8MTUxMzk2NDQzMUAxNTEzODc4MDMx&amp;q=http%3A%2F%2Funderstandmyself.com%2F&amp;event=video_description" class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string">http://understandmyself.com/</a></li> <li>Podcast: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?v=B7V8eZ1BLiI&amp;redir_token=RMMaFnl7-eLbevabpq408gcOAwd8MTUxMzk2NDQzMUAxNTEzODc4MDMx&amp;q=https%3A%2F%2Fjordanbpeterson.com%2Fjordan-b-peterson-podcast%2F&amp;event=video_description" class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string">https://jordanbpeterson.com/jordan-b-peterson-podcast/</a></li> <li>Reading List: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?v=B7V8eZ1BLiI&amp;redir_token=RMMaFnl7-eLbevabpq408gcOAwd8MTUxMzk2NDQzMUAxNTEzODc4MDMx&amp;q=https%3A%2F%2Fjordanbpeterson.com%2F2017%2F10%2Fgreat-books%2F&amp;event=video_description" class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string">https://jordanbpeterson.com/2017/10/great-books/</a></li> <li>Twitter: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?v=B7V8eZ1BLiI&amp;redir_token=RMMaFnl7-eLbevabpq408gcOAwd8MTUxMzk2NDQzMUAxNTEzODc4MDMx&amp;q=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitter.com%2Fjordanbpeterson&amp;event=video_description" class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string">https://twitter.com/jordanbpeterson</a></li> <li>Patreon: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?v=B7V8eZ1BLiI&amp;redir_token=RMMaFnl7-eLbevabpq408gcOAwd8MTUxMzk2NDQzMUAxNTEzODc4MDMx&amp;q=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.patreon.com%2Fjordanbpeterson&amp;event=video_description" class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string">https://www.patreon.com/jordanbpeterson</a></li> </ul>

35 - Jacob: Wrestling with God
2:32:54
<p>Lecture 13 in my Psychological Significance of the Biblical Stories lecture series. In this lecture, I present the second half of the story of Jacob, later Israel (he who struggles with God). After serving his time with his uncle Laban, and being deceived by him in the most karmic of manners, Jacob returns to his home country. On the way, he encounters an angel, or God Himself, wrestles through the night with Him. Successful in his encounter, he still sustains damage to his thigh, but earns the name Israel, and becomes the father of all those who to this day wrestle with God.</p> <p>First, a note: My new book, <strong>12 RULES FOR LIFE: AN ANTIDOTE TO CHAOS</strong> now available at:</p> <p><span>Amazon UK: Allen Lane/Penguin: </span><a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?v=DRJKwDfDbco&amp;event=video_description&amp;q=http%3A%2F%2Famzn.to%2F2AgWCsj&amp;redir_token=DagFYQ6xZoqEN5i0VTA7XK5K6vx8MTUxMjE0MjA1NkAxNTEyMDU1NjU2">http://amzn.to/2AgWCsj</a><span> </span></p> <p><span>Amazon USA: </span><a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?v=DRJKwDfDbco&amp;event=video_description&amp;q=http%3A%2F%2Famzn.to%2F2yvJf9L&amp;redir_token=DagFYQ6xZoqEN5i0VTA7XK5K6vx8MTUxMjE0MjA1NkAxNTEyMDU1NjU2">http://amzn.to/2yvJf9L</a><span></span></p> <p><span>Amazon Canada: </span><a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?v=DRJKwDfDbco&amp;event=video_description&amp;q=http%3A%2F%2Famzn.to%2F2g2K7uQ&amp;redir_token=DagFYQ6xZoqEN5i0VTA7XK5K6vx8MTUxMjE0MjA1NkAxNTEyMDU1NjU2">http://amzn.to/2g2K7uQ</a></p> <p><strong><a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?v=DRJKwDfDbco&amp;event=video_description&amp;q=http%3A%2F%2Famzn.to%2F2g2K7uQ&amp;redir_token=DagFYQ6xZoqEN5i0VTA7XK5K6vx8MTUxMjE0MjA1NkAxNTEyMDU1NjU2"></a>Links</strong></p> <p><span>Patreon: </span><a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?v=DRJKwDfDbco&amp;event=video_description&amp;q=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.patreon.com%2Fjordanbpeterson&amp;redir_token=DagFYQ6xZoqEN5i0VTA7XK5K6vx8MTUxMjE0MjA1NkAxNTEyMDU1NjU2">https://www.patreon.com/jordanbpeterson</a><span> </span></p> <p><span>S</span>elf Authoring: <a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?v=DRJKwDfDbco&amp;event=video_description&amp;q=http%3A%2F%2Fselfauthoring.com%2F&amp;redir_token=DagFYQ6xZoqEN5i0VTA7XK5K6vx8MTUxMjE0MjA1NkAxNTEyMDU1NjU2">http://selfauthoring.com/</a></p> <p>Understand Myself: <a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?v=DRJKwDfDbco&amp;event=video_description&amp;q=http%3A%2F%2Funderstandmyself.com%2F&amp;redir_token=DagFYQ6xZoqEN5i0VTA7XK5K6vx8MTUxMjE0MjA1NkAxNTEyMDU1NjU2">http://understandmyself.com/</a></p> <p>Jordan Peterson Website: <a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?v=DRJKwDfDbco&amp;event=video_description&amp;q=http%3A%2F%2Fjordanbpeterson.com%2F&amp;redir_token=DagFYQ6xZoqEN5i0VTA7XK5K6vx8MTUxMjE0MjA1NkAxNTEyMDU1NjU2">http://jordanbpeterson.com/</a></p> <p>Podcast: <a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?v=DRJKwDfDbco&amp;event=video_description&amp;q=http%3A%2F%2Fjordanbpeterson.com%2Fjordan-b-p&amp;redir_token=DagFYQ6xZoqEN5i0VTA7XK5K6vx8MTUxMjE0MjA1NkAxNTEyMDU1NjU2">http://jordanbpeterson.com/jordan-b-p</a>...</p> <p>Reading List: <a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?v=DRJKwDfDbco&amp;event=video_description&amp;q=http%3A%2F%2Fjordanbpeterson.com%2F2017%2F03%2Fgr&amp;redir_token=DagFYQ6xZoqEN5i0VTA7XK5K6vx8MTUxMjE0MjA1NkAxNTEyMDU1NjU2">http://jordanbpeterson.com/2017/03/gr</a>...</p> <p>Twitter: <a class="yt-simple-endpoint style-scope yt-formatted-string" href="https://www.youtube.com/redirect?v=DRJKwDfDbco&amp;event=video_description&amp;q=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitter.com%2Fjordanbpeterson&amp;redir_token=DagFYQ6xZoqEN5i0VTA7XK5K6vx8MTUxMjE0MjA1NkAxNTEyMDU1NjU2">https://twitter.com/jordanbpeterson</a></p> <p>Producer Credit and thanks to the following $200/month Patreon supporters.

34 - The Perilous State of the University - Jonathan Haidt
1:35:43
<p>I recently traveled to New York University to talk with Dr. Jonathan Haidt about, among other things, disgust, purity, fear and belief; the perilous state of the modern university; and his work with Heterodox Academy (<a>https://heterodoxacademy.org/</a>) an organization designed to draw attention to the lack of diversity of political belief in the humanities and the social sciences. Dr. Haidt is Professor of Ethical Leadership at New York University's Stern School of Business and a social psychologist. He studies the psychology of morality and the moral emotions. He has been described as a top global thinker by both Foreign Policy and Prospect magazines. Dr. Haidt is the author of three books: The newest is The Coddling of the American Mind: How Bad Ideas and Good Intentions are Setting up a Generation for Failure (<a>http://amzn.to/2AN87a6</a>). The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion (http://amzn.to/2yOOQnU) The Happiness Hypothesis: Finding Modern Truth in Ancient Wisdom (<a>http://amzn.to/2hJ0TzT</a>) His writings on diversity viewpoint for the Heterodox Academy are at (<a>http://righteousmind.com/viewpoint-diversity/</a>)</p> <h5>Other links relevant to Jordan Peterson Videos:</h5> <ul> <li>12 Rules for Life (Dr. Peterson's forthcoming book): <a href="%20http://amzn.to/2yvJf9L">http://amzn.to/2yvJf9L</a></li> <li>Patreon: <a href="%20https://www.patreon.com/jordanbpeterson">https://www.patreon.com/jordanbpeterson</a></li> <li>Self Authoring Suite: <a href="%20https://selfauthoring.com/">https://selfauthoring.com/</a></li> <li> Understand Myself Personality Test: <a href="%20http://understandmyself.com/">http://understandmyself.com/</a></li> <li> Jordan Peterson Website: <a href="%20http://jordanbpeterson.com/">http://jordanbpeterson.com/</a></li> <li> Podcast: <a href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/jordan-b-peterson-podcast/">https://jordanbpeterson.com/jordan-b-peterson-podcast/</a></li> <li> Reading List: <a href="%20https://jordanbpeterson.com/2017/10/great-books/">https://jordanbpeterson.com/2017/10/great-books/ </a></li> <li> Twitter: <a href="%20https://twitter.com/jordanbpeterson">https://twitter.com/jordanbpeterson</a></li> </ul>

30 - The Great Sacrifice: Abraham and Isaac
2:34:17
<p>Lecture 12 in the Psychological Significance of the Biblical Stories series</p> <p>In this, the final lecture of the Summer 2017 12-part series The Psychological Significance of the Biblical Stories, we encounter, first, Hagar's banishment to the desert with Ishmael and then the demand made by God to Abraham for the sacrifice of Isaac.</p> <p>To sacrifice now is to gain later: perhaps the greatest of human discoveries. What, then, should best be sacrificed? And what might be the greatest gain? There are few eternal questions more profound and difficult.</p> <p>In this lecture, I read an excerpt from Chapter 7 of my new book, 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos, now available for pre-order at <a href="http://amzn.to/2wkb7MY">Amazon.ca</a> and <a href="http://amzn.to/2x1hfXF">Amazon.com</a>.</p> <p>I am currently making arrangements to continue this series with a monthly lecture.

29 - Sodom and Gomorrah
2:31:48
<p>Lecture 11 in the Psychological Significance of the Biblical Stories series. Often interpreted as an injunction against homosexuality (particularly by those simultaneously claiming identity as Christians and opposed to that orientation), the stories of the angels who visit Abraham, bless him, and then rain destruction on Sodom and Gomorrah are more truly a warning against mistreatment of the stranger and impulsive, dysregulated, sybaritic conduct. Abraham opens his heart and hearth to the stranger. The denizens of Lot’s soon-to-be lost cities threaten them with violent rape. God exacts a terrible retribution. The warning is clear.</p> <p>Links</p> <ul> <li><a href="https://www.patreon.com/jordanbpeterson">Support this Podcast on Patreon</a> </li> <li><a href="https://selfauthoring.com/">Self Authoring</a></li> <li><a href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/">Jordan Peterson Website</a></li> <li><a href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/2017/03/great-books/">Reading List</a></li> <li><a href="https://twitter.com/jordanbpeterson">Twitter</a></li> </ul>

28 - Abraham: Father of Nations
2:29:09
Lecture 10 in the Psychological Significance of the Biblical Stories series. The Abrahamic adventures continue with this, the tenth lecture in my 12-part initial Biblical lecture series. Abraham's life is presented as a series of encapsulated narratives, punctuated by sacrifice, and the rekindling of his covenant with God. This seems to reflect the pattern of human life: the journey towards a goal, or destination, and the completion of a stage or epoch of life, followed by the necessity of revelation and reconsideration of identity, prior to the next step forward. Abraham, for his part, makes the sacrifices necessary to continue to walk with God, or before God (as the terminology in this section has it). It is this decision that allows him to transcend the vicissitudes of life, and to take his role as the father of nations. <p>Links</p> <ul> <li><a href="https://www.patreon.com/jordanbpeterson">Support this Podcast on Patreon</a> </li> <li><a href="https://selfauthoring.com/">Self Authoring</a></li> <li><a href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/">Jordan Peterson Website</a></li> <li><a href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/2017/03/great-books/">Reading List</a></li> <li><a href="https://twitter.com/jordanbpeterson">Twitter</a></li> </ul>

27 - The Call to Abraham
2:36:01
<p>Lecture 9 in my Psychological Significance of the Biblical Stories series. </p> <p>In this lecture, I tell the story of Abraham, who heeds the call of God to leave what was familiar behind and to journey into unknown lands. The man portrayed in the Bible as the father of nations moves forward into the world. He encounters the worst of nature (famine), society (the tyranny of Egypt) and the envy of the powerful, who desire his wife. There is nothing easy about Abraham's life. Instead, he is portrayed both as a real man, with serious problems, and a hero, who overcomes tremendous obstacles to establish himself in the world.</p> <p>His covenant with God is an Ark. His decision to aim at the highest good he can conceptualize places an aura of magic around the events of his life, despite their harshness. He's a model for life in the world as it is, not as we wish it would be.</p> <p>Links</p> <ul> <li><a href="https://www.patreon.com/jordanbpeterson">Support this Podcast on Patreon</a> </li> <li><a href="https://selfauthoring.com/">Self Authoring</a></li> <li><a href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/">Jordan Peterson Website</a></li> <li><a href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/2017/03/great-books/">Reading List</a></li> <li><a href="https://twitter.com/jordanbpeterson">Twitter</a></li> </ul>

26 - The Phenomenology of the Divine
2:41:33
<p>Lecture 8 in the Psychological Significance of the Biblical Stories series. In the next series of stories, the Biblical patriarch Abram (later: Abraham) enters into a covenant with God. The history of Israel proper begins with these stories. Abram heeds the call to adventure, journeys courageously away from his country and family into the foreign and unknown, encounters the disasters of nature and the tyranny of mankind and maintains his relationship with the God who has sent him forth. He becomes in this manner a light in the world, and a father of nations. </p> <p>How is this all to be understood? I am attempting in this lecture to determine precisely that. How are we, as modern people, to make sense of the idea of the God who reveals himself to a personality? How can we relate the details of the Abramic stories to our own lives, in the current world? In what frame of reference can these stories be seen to make sense, and to reveal their meaning? </p> <p>Links</p> <ul> <li><a href="https://www.patreon.com/jordanbpeterson">Support this Podcast on Patreon</a> </li> <li><a href="https://selfauthoring.com/">Self Authoring</a></li> <li><a href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/">Jordan Peterson Website</a></li> <li><a href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/2017/03/great-books/">Reading List</a></li> <li><a href="https://twitter.com/jordanbpeterson">Twitter</a></li> </ul>

25 - Walking With God: Noah and the Flood
2:31:47
<p>Lecture 7 in the Psychological Significance of the Biblical Stories Lecture Series.</p> <p>Life at the individual and the societal level is punctuated by crisis and catastrophe. This stark truth finds its narrative representation in the widely-distributed universal motif of the flood. Mircea Eliade, the great Romanian historian of religion, noted that flood stories identify two reasons for the destruction: (1) the tendency of complex things to fall apart of their own accord; (2) the proclivity of human beings to speed up that process by sinning, or missing the mark (by engaging in self-evident corruption, or by failing to attend to what cries out for attention). The Genesis story clearly states that Noah and his family are to be spared from impending disaster because Noah “walks with God,” as Adam did before the Fall. In this lecture, the 7th in the series, I intermingle the story of Noah and his survival with elements of the Sermon on the Mount, making the effort to explain to a modern audience why careful moral attitude and behavior comprises the best defense against “the righteous anger of God.” </p> <p>Links</p> <ul> <li><a href="https://www.patreon.com/jordanbpeterson">Support this Podcast on Patreon</a> </li> <li><a href="https://selfauthoring.com/">Self Authoring</a></li> <li><a href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/">Jordan Peterson Website</a></li> <li><a href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/2017/03/great-books/">Reading List</a></li> <li><a href="https://twitter.com/jordanbpeterson">Twitter</a></li> </ul>

24 - The Psychology of the Flood
2:37:04
<p>Lecture 6 in my Psychological Significance of the Biblical Stories lecture series </p> <p>The story of Noah and the Ark is next in the Genesis sequence. This is a more elaborated tale than the initial creation account, or the story of Adam and Eve or Cain and Abel. However, it cannot be understood in its true depth without some investigation into what the motif of the flood means, psychologically, and an analysis of how that motif is informed by the order/chaos dichotomy, as well as by the idea of an involuntary voyage to the underworld or confrontation with the dragon. In consequence, this lecture concentrates almost exclusively on psychology: How is an encounter with the unknown to be understood, conceptually? How and why is that represented with themes such as the underworld voyage, the dragon fight, or the flood? </p> <p>All that constitutes the theme of lecture VI.</p> <p>Links</p> <ul> <li><a href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/bible-series/">Purchase Tickets Here for the Bible Series</a></li> <li><a href="https://www.patreon.com/jordanbpeterson">Support this Podcast on Patreon</a> </li> <li><a href="https://selfauthoring.com/">Self Authoring</a></li> <li><a href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/">Jordan Peterson Website</a></li> <li><a href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/2017/03/great-books/">Reading List</a></li> <li><a href="https://twitter.com/jordanbpeterson">Twitter</a></li> </ul>

23 - Cain and Abel: The Hostile Brothers
0:00:02
<p>Lecture 5 in my Psychological Significance of the Biblical Stories lecture series </p> <p>The account of Cain and Abel is remarkable for its unique combination of brevity and depth. In a few short sentences, it outlines two diametrically opposed modes of being -- both responses to the emergence of self-consciousness and the knowledge of good and evil detailed in story of Adam and Eve.</p> <p>Cain's mode of being -- resentful, arrogant and murderous -- arises because his sacrifices are rejected by God. This means that his attempts to give up something valuable in the present to ensure prosperity in the future are insufficient. He fails, in consequence, to thrive, as he believes he should, and becomes bitter, resentful and murderous.</p> <p>Abel's mode of being is characterized, by contrast, by proper sacrifice -- by the establishment of balance between present action and future benefit. This ensures his personal and social success, accruing over time. Unfortunately, it also makes him the target of Cain's malevolence.</p> <p>This great short story is relevant personally, on the level of the family, and politically, all with equal force, all simultaneously.</p> <p>Links</p> <ul> <li><a href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/bible-series/">Purchase Tickets Here for the Bible Series</a></li> <li><a href="https://www.patreon.com/jordanbpeterson">Support this Podcast on Patreon</a> </li> <li><a href="https://selfauthoring.com/">Self Authoring</a></li> <li><a href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/">Jordan Peterson Website</a></li> <li><a href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/2017/03/great-books/">Reading List</a></li> <li><a href="https://twitter.com/jordanbpeterson">Twitter</a></li> </ul>

22 - Adam and Eve: Self-Consciousness, Evil, and Death
2:34:00
<p>Lecture 4 in my Psychological Significance of the Biblical Stories lecture series </p> <p>I turned my attention in this lecture to the older of the two creation accounts in Genesis: the story of Adam and Eve. In its few short paragraphs, it covers:</p> <ol> <li>the emergence of human self-consciousness;</li> <li>mankind's attendant realization of vulnerability, mortality, and death; </li> <li>the origin of the capacity for willful evil, as the ability to exploit that newly-realized vulnerability;</li> <li>the emergence of shame as a consequence of that realization;</li> <li>the shrinking from divine destiny that occurred when shame emerged; and</li> <li>the beginning of true history, with the self-conscious toil that life in history entails.</li> </ol> <p>Impossible. Amazing. Breathtaking. </p> <p>The only story that can perhaps match it in terms of impact per sentence is that of Cain and Abel, which we discuss in the next lecture: number five in this twelve part series. </p> <p>Links</p> <ul> <li><a href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/bible-series/">Purchase Tickets Here for the Bible Series</a></li> <li><a href="https://www.patreon.com/jordanbpeterson">Support this Podcast on Patreon</a> </li> <li><a href="https://selfauthoring.com/">Self Authoring</a></li> <li><a href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/">Jordan Peterson Website</a></li> <li><a href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/2017/03/great-books/">Reading List</a></li> <li><a href="https://twitter.com/jordanbpeterson">Twitter</a></li> </ul>

21 - God and the Hierarchy of Authority
2:42:00
<p>Lecture 3 in my Psychological Significance of the Biblical Stories series at the Isabel Bader Theatre in Toronto. </p> <p> Although I thought I might get to Genesis II in this third lecture, and begin talking about Adam & Eve, it didn't turn out that way. There was more to be said about the idea of God as creator (with the Word as the process underlying the act of creation). I didn't mind, because it is very important to get God and the Creation of the Universe right before moving on :) . </p> <p>In this lecture, I tried to outline something like this: for anything to be, there has to be a substrate (call it a potential) from which it emerges, a structure that provides the possibility of imposing order on that substrate, and the act of ordering, itself. So the first is something like the precosmogonic chaos (implicitly feminine); the second, God the Father; the third, what the Christian West has portrayed as the Son (the Word of Truth). </p> <p>Links</p> <ul> <li><a href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/bible-series/">Purchase Tickets Here for the Bible Series</a></li> <li><a href="https://www.patreon.com/jordanbpeterson">Support this Podcast on Patreon</a> </li> <li><a href="https://selfauthoring.com/">Self Authoring</a></li> <li><a href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/">Jordan Peterson Website</a></li> <li><a href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/2017/03/great-books/">Reading List</a></li> <li><a href="https://twitter.com/jordanbpeterson">Twitter</a></li> </ul>

19 - Genesis - Chaos and Order
2:33:44
<p>Lecture 2 in my Psychological Significance of the Biblical Stories. In this lecture, I present Genesis 1, which presents the idea that a pre-existent cognitive structure (God the Father) uses the Logos, the Christian Word, the second Person of the Trinity, to generate habitable order out of precosmogonic chaos at the beginning of time. It is in that Image that Man and Woman are created -- indicating, perhaps, that it is (1) through speech that we participate in the creation of the cosmos of experience and (2) that what true speech creates is good. </p> <p>It is a predicate of Western culture that each individual partakes in some manner in the divine. This is the true significance of consciousness, which has a world-creating aspect. </p> <p>Links</p> <ul> <li><a href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/bible-series/">Purchase Tickets Here for the Bible Series</a></li> <li><a href="https://www.patreon.com/jordanbpeterson">Support this Podcast on Patreon</a> </li> <li><a href="https://selfauthoring.com/">Self Authoring</a></li> <li><a href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/">Jordan Peterson Website</a></li> <li><a href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/2017/03/great-books/">Reading List</a></li> <li><a href="https://twitter.com/jordanbpeterson">Twitter</a></li> </ul>

18 - Introduction to the Idea of God
2:39:23
<p>Lecture 1 in my Psychological Significance of the Biblical Stories series from May 16th at Isabel Bader Theatre in Toronto. In this lecture, I describe what I consider to be the idea of God, which is at least partly the notion of sovereignty and power, divorced from any concrete sovereign or particular, individual person of power. I also suggest that God, as Father, is something akin to the spirit or pattern inherent in the human hierarchy of authority, which is based in turn on the dominance hierarchies characterizing animals. </p> <p>Links</p> <ul> <li><a href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/bible-series/">Purchase Tickets Here for the Bible Series</a></li> <li><a href="https://www.patreon.com/jordanbpeterson">Support this Podcast on Patreon</a> </li> <li><a href="https://selfauthoring.com/">Self Authoring</a></li> <li><a href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/">Jordan Peterson Website</a></li> <li><a href="https://jordanbpeterson.com/2017/03/great-books/">Reading List</a></li> <li><a href="https://twitter.com/jordanbpeterson">Twitter</a></li> </ul>

Pennebaker is Professor of Psychology at the University of Texas at Austin, and the Executive Director of Project 2021, aimed at rethinking undergrad education at that university.</p> <p>I first encountered Dr. Pennebaker's work when I was working on the SelfAuthoring Suite (www.selfauthoring.com), an online writing program which has helped thousands of college students stay in school and get better grades. He conducted the original work on "expressive writing," starting in the 1980's, showing that people's health and productivity improved when they wrote about traumatic experiences or uncertainty -- particularly if they constructed causal accounts or plans. He has also investigated the psychological significance of patterns of word use (particularly about everyone's favorites, pronouns). We talk about all of this, and much more.</p> <p>Dr. Pennebaker's books include:</p> <ul> <li><a href="http://amzn.to/2mQX09L">"Opening Up by Writing it Down" </a></li> <li><a href="http://amzn.to/2m6eIWP">"Expressive Writing: Words that Heal"</a></li> <li><a href="http://amzn.to/2lqfRvu">The Secret Life of Pronouns"</a></li> </ul> <p>You can find out more about The SelfAuthoring Suite, which helps people write about the difficulties and uncertainties of the past (Past Authoring), present (Present Authoring) and Future (Future Authoring) at www.selfauthoring.com.

01 - Reality and the Sacred
0:58:18
<p>In a public lecture recorded by TVO, Dr Peterson describes the way the world is portrayed in deep stories, such as myths and religious representations. The world in such stories is a place of action, not a place of things, and it has its archetypal characters, positive and negative. Culture is typically represented as paternal, nature as maternal, and the individual as hero and adversary. Culture offers people security, but threatens them with tyranny. Nature offers renewal, but also brings death. The religious path of meaning allows people to negotiate this archetypal landscape.</p> <p><a href="https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?u=3019121" target="_blank">Support this Podcast with Patreon</a></p> <p>Dr Peterson's Online Self-Development Writing Programs: <a href="http://www.selfauthoring.com" target="_blank">Self Authoring</a></p>
