May 10th, 2021A few years ago my mentor told me the following …There are no parents upstairs.He told me this during a great doubt in my life. Everything was so fucking complex, and this was before COVID came online. Even doing the basic stuff was difficult. Being organized with my health and finances was hard enough, so was determining what my career path should be, not to mention the pressure of getting all my relationships right.It was not just the practical stuff though, but also dealing with all the nebulous psychological stuff, such as shame, cognitive distortions, limiting beliefs, intergenerational trauma, and …

John Vervaeke’s Awakening from the Meaning Crisis — and beyondJohn Vervaeke’s lecture Series on YouTube: https://youtu.be/54l8_ewcOlYZombies and Postmodern BullshitJean-Francois Lyotard defined postmodernism as the death of the grand narrative. His view—a rather grandiose narrative in itself—was that: ‘The narrative function is losing its functors, it’s great hero, it’s great dangers, it’s great voyages, it’s great goal. It is being dispersed.’ But he was deadly wrong. Actually, the hero, the adventure, the voyage, the goal, the grand narratives never really went away. They just need to be re-discovered.Postmodernism, as a cultural mood, is the gleeful and nihilistic celebration of the death of meaning and …

Jonathan Rowson in conversation with Jordan Peterson at the RSA on January 16 2018.Jordan B. Peterson is easily misunderstood. He is a clinical psychologist and Professor of Psychology at the University of Toronto but is now known as a forceful cultural commentator who emphasizes the value, depth, and dignity of individual responsibility in an embattled manner, as if civilization is at stake. His magnum opus is not the current self-help bestseller, 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos, but a much deeper inquiry into myths and archetypes, Maps of Meaning, published two decades earlier.[i] Peterson’s online academic lectures derive from …

https://medium.com/media/71203b624d135a07574fbabe5eae5177/hrefFor an outside observer, the most significant characteristic of the ongoing controversy and fallout from the Kavanaugh nomination to the Supreme Court is how fundamentally divorced the twin narratives have become, and how little communication seems possible or even attempted across the divide.Into this maelstrom stepped Jordan Peterson and other members of the ‘Intellectual Dark Web’, with Peterson receiving the most sustained and intense criticism he has received from his own supporters for a tweet in which he suggested that Kavanaugh should step down if he was confirmed.Many of his supporters seemed horrified that he was arguing for, in their mind, …

https://medium.com/media/b6ec75a9a575fef95f35d7ce29df42a7/hrefLast week I did my first interview with Jordan Peterson since October last year, which I then turned into the documentary ‘Truth in the Time of Chaos’, for my new media channel Rebel Wisdom.I’d had a LOT of time to think about what questions to ask him this time out, though I knew I only had thirty minutes to ask them. In the end that turned into about 6 questions.The most interesting answers were about his relationship to the left, points I’d never heard him make before.This interview inspired us at Rebel Wisdom to produce a whole series of films about the …

It seems that an old conversation has begun again. After several decades of relative silence and in the context of the rising popularity of Jordan Peterson and the broader “Intellectual Dark Web,” the debate between Science and Religion has seen a glimmer of a return.I have long contemplated this question and, in collaboration with Deep Code, have perhaps achieved some insights that are worth sharing. Interestingly, as I have endeavored to put these ideas down ‘on paper’, I have noticed that they seem rather simple. Perhaps this is precisely as it should be.To begin, I would like to bring to mind the …

It might very well be the case that 2018 will be known as the “Year of Jordan Peterson”.If you happen to have read anything that I’ve written, you will have noticed that I come from a very different place than Dr. Peterson. I spend most of my time in high abstraction, thinking about global systems and long term dynamics. Not about how important it is to clean your room. Accordingly, if you are thinking, you might be puzzled. Just what could I mean by proposing that Peterson is not merely popular nor controversial. But that he is important and precisely …
