Peterson Ible fate awaits those who criticize too easily and why you should always pet a cat when you meet one on the streetWhat does the nervous system of the lowly lobster have to tell us about standing up straight with our shoulders back and about success in life Why did ancient Egyptians worship the capacity to pay careful attention as the highest of gods What dreadful paths do p.

Peterson Eople tread when they become resentful arrogant and vengeful Dr Peterson journeys broadly discussing discipline freedom adventure and responsibility distilling the world's wisdom into 12 practical and profound rules for life 12 Rules for Life shatters the modern commonplaces of science faith and human nature while transforming and ennobling the mind and spirit of its listene. Faulty tools produce faulty results Jordan B Peterson 12 Rules for LifeI m generally not a fan of self help books and this one would have probably never hit my to read shelf if a good friend of mine hadn t invited me to attend a live Jordan Peterson lecture in Phoenix a little over a week ago June 1 2018 The only other exposure I had to Peterson was a wave of seriously negative posts about him by some of my most liberal friends on FB I was intrigued Here I have some friends who found something of value from him enough to want to share with me also we were using Peterson just as a reason to reconnect AND other friends who absolutely abhorred the man All of this fascinated me I was relatively a tabula rasa on this guy I hadn t even read some of the negative pieces on him I loved people that upended the status uo I loved early Camille Paglia and Andrew Sullivan Now I was curious Was this guy throwing sand into the salad of liberals on purpose Was he just thinking in a way that was uniue and not bounded by usual boundaries So I went and heard him speak I found his lecture like I found his book fascinating It was a mixture of science myth story telling Disney and confidence man bullshit The box I was in had 6 men and 4 women not a bad ratio since a large proportion of Jordan s rabid fan base is white men And when I say rabid I mean foaming at the mouth rabid When he was introduced several men in the crowd grunted like they were prepping for a football game or battle It was a little intense The testosterone in some was uncorked After the show and while reading this book I ve also come across several of his interviews and YouTube videos I think an obvious example of the way Peterson gets misread is the Cathy Newman interview or the recent NYTimes piece These don t do a good job of actually getting to the root of what Jordan Peterson is saying Personally I think 80% of what Peterson is saying is actually NOT bad How can you really argue with ideas like clean your room treat yourself like you are someone you are responsible for helping rule 2 pursue what is meaningful not what is expedient rule 7 or tell the truth or at least don t lie rule 8 A lot of what he says makes sense But it is the last 20% of what he says that kind of drives me nuts and I m a white man I can imagine that womenminoritiesuniversity intellectuals would feel a bit stronger than me His critiues of feminism white privilege post modernism modern universities etc aren t narrow and tend to violate his own rule 10 be precise in your speech He rambles rages and makes pretty big assumptions on areas that are far from well established and often a bit beyond his areas of expertiseMy other issue with Peterson that was clarified in the lecture than the book is he is actually seeking the role of secular prophetrevivalistguru Hell in his introduction is basically admitted that the book s subjects were basically market tested on the internet People like lists They really like certainty Many of the population Peterson was aiming at aren t familiar with mythsJungian archetypesphilosophy so it becomes easier to use Disney movies Why not tell your audience what to do in a nice list of 12 things Like Steven R Covey on confrontational steroids Dr Peterson walked around the Comerica stage and riffed on one of his rules mostly Rule 10 in Phoenix and a dash of Rule 11 Like the text of his book he circled around repeating stories and points declare something true or false making a joke and then absolved his mainly white male audience from some of their social guilt and anxiety They loved him for it He was Jimmy Swaggart in Canadian professor garb Because it is hard to define white privilege it doesn t exist so ignore it Rinse and repeat for feminism and other issues plaguing our modern culture and often aimed at privilege money or power It was wild seeing white single men showing up to this even wearing t shirts with his picture on it It must be hard to not let that kind of cultish adoration go to your head even if your background is the human head
