Rank #1: 01 - Reality and the Sacred

Dec 07 2016
Podcast cover
Read more

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.

Part 1: Maps of Meaning: 1 Monsters of Our Own Making. This is the first of a 13-part 30 minute episode television series broadcast by TVO presenting Dr. Jordan B Peterson's lectures on his book, Maps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief. The lecture provides a good introduction to the psychology of mythology and religion, based on the idea that stories from these domains describe the world as a place of action, rather than, as science does, a place of things. Part 2: Maps of Meaning: 2 Contending with Chaos Part 3: Maps of Meaning: 3 Becoming Like Gods Links * YouTube Video playlist (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=knEZN9U-9xc&list=PL22J3VaeABQC6oShltYc6rMUDAGJ7_G5e&index=1) * Self-Authoring Programs (http://www.selfauthoring.com) * Dr Peterson's Patreon Support Page (http://www.patreon.com/user?u=3019121)

Rank #3: 18 - Introduction to the Idea of God

May 23 2017
Podcast cover
Read more

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.

See www.jordanbpeterson.com/events (https://jordanbpeterson.com/events/) Shapiro discussion starts at about 4:20 if you want to skip the tour information. This is an alternate posting of Ben Shapiro's May 6 premiere Sunday Special discussion with me (https://bit.ly/2I4czoU (https://www.youtube.com/redirect?q=https%3A%2F%2Fbit.ly%2F2I4czoU&v=vvSetcM-f3k&redir_token=Xo-zG_IOdqEQ76UXc1_yh2RSXgh8MTUyNjM5MzYxMkAxNTI2MzA3MjEy&event=video_description)). Ben and I had a very intense discussion about the nesting of human perception and cognition in the mythic world - a better discussion, I think, than I've had with anyone. I've added to the beginning of our discussion an update on available tickets for my US 12 Rules for Life tour, and an announcement of 10 additional Canadian dates (see www.jordanbpeterson.com/events).

I'm speaking with Dr. Martin Daly, a professor at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, a pioneer in the field of evolutionary psychology, and author of Killing the Competition (http://amzn.to/2q3pyAO). Dr. Daly has determined that economic inequality and male on male homicide rates are strongly linked, and makes a causal argument for why this is the case, attributing it to status competition under stressful conditions.

Farrell has recently published another book, The Boy Crisis (https://amzn.to/2wnApuy (https://www.youtube.com/redirect?event=video_description&v=v5O_FLUWYmg&q=https%3A%2F%2Famzn.to%2F2wnApuy&redir_token=eQmBODuJLeReve33HwzB5ybb6W58MTUyNTg3NTI0OEAxNTI1Nzg4ODQ4)) 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.

We discussed freedom of speech, ideological possession, unconscious bias and the Implicit Association test, and other issues germane to psychology and the modern world.

Rank #9: 19 - Genesis - Chaos and Order

May 29 2017
Podcast cover
Read more

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. 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.
