I’m not a big fan of Peterson (nor his bigger detractor, I’ll admit, if you ask me I think he is a mixed bag), but this is a joint document agreed with Sam Harris as a summary for their latest debate on building an effective morality. I have my ideas, but I should perhaps save them for a longer post.
Not clicking on that..
One day people will talk about other people instead of this carousel of the same handful of alt right sympathiser thinkers... Dawkins, Pinker, Harris, Peterson et al.
Having Peterson constantly shoved in my face is one reason to come off this site.
I’ll have to check this out, I actually really like Jordan Peterson which isn’t a popular opinion to hold on this site from what I’ve seen, but that’s okay. I may not agree with everything he says, but when he says things like I’ll paraphrase here “clean your room first” I love it. It reminds me that before I dedicate my effort outside of myself, I have a lot of things that I need to improve about myself first. I also really enjoy his breakdowns of stories, now I don’t necessarily agree that people need meta narratives and I don’t necessarily disagree with the postmodern scepticism towards such stories and how they relate to each other, but I’d have to read more about the subject to really form an opinion on the matter.
I have mixed feelings about Peterson too. Though it doesn’t help that others demonize him. I don’t think he’s a complete hack, as I’ve said.
I do feel he’s being honest in most topics. Just not when it comes to religion, especially Christianity. He seems to beat around the bush sometimes.
