The interview focuses on the impact of Peterson’s work beyond the western world.Mikhail Avdeev – https://linktr.ee/MikhailAvdeev_______________Shownotes:_______________[00:00] Jordan Peterson is interviewed by Mikail Avdeev, a member of his foreign translations team. They begin the discussion by talking about the forming of the international translation teams.[02:00] The healing effect of Jordan’s lectures. The outcry for new material from Jordan’s catalog of books, lectures, and podcasts has been overwhelming. [04:00] Espousing the profundity of Eric Neumann’s works in his “The Origins and History of Consciousness and The Great Mother.”[05:20] Peterson comments on another personal favorite author of his, Mircea Eliade, and his history of religious ideas – an anthropological and sociological assessment of religion that’s also deeply psychological.[06:40] How Russians respond to Jordan’s affinity for Alexander Solzhenitsyn. Mikail details the feelings of the Russian people by their portrayal after the fall of communism.[10:00] How we deal with the guilt of the things our ancestors or society have done: a very difficult question because we are very historical creatures. The best thing for us is to try to understand what happened and avoid making the same mistakes twice.[13:30] Examining the trope that all white people are racist; the existential guilt of history.[20:00] Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, and Daniel Dennett seem to hold that religious belief is a set of propositions about the material world (in a way a direct competitor to scientific theory) and that’s just not fully accurate. There is something outside of strict rationality in the human experience.[24:00] Gibson’s visual perception theory. Value is the key to our perception of the world around us.[34:20] Fragmentation of the value structure necessarily leads to an increased level of constant anxiety in all experience.[36:30] What parts of modern society are contributing to the integrity of consciousness, and what things are degrading that. A hatred for real success and striving for personal gain will tear us apart if left unchecked.[43:30] There is no doubt that economic exploitation occurs and that some wealth is gained in an unethical manner – but that is not the rule.[45:45] On the importance of beauty in personal experiences as well as the collective human experience.[51:00] Differences between Dostoevsky and Nietzsche; closeness to the ideal of beauty[56:30] The complexity of the language of Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life.

Peterson’s philosophy behind good writing and text structure of a truly complete work.[1:13:40] Mikhaila Peterson’s strength in the face of a great deal of suffering in her life. How wonderful it is to see her succeeding in personal endeavors like her podcast.[1:20:15] Fostering children’s individual growth and love of learning.[1:32:00] Wrapping up // SUPPORT THIS CHANNEL //Newsletter: https://linktr.ee/DrJordanBPetersonDonations: https://jordanbpeterson.com/donate// COURSES //Discovering Personality: https://jordanbpeterson.com/personalitySelf Authoring Suite: https://selfauthoring.comUnderstand Myself (personality test): https://understandmyself.com// BOOKS //Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life: https://jordanbpeterson.com/Beyond-Order12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos: https://jordanbpeterson.com/12-rules-for-lifeMaps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief: https://jordanbpeterson.com/maps-of-meaning// LINKS //Website: https://jordanbpeterson.comEvents: https://jordanbpeterson.com/eventsBlog: https://jordanbpeterson.com/blogPodcast: https://jordanbpeterson.com/podcast// SOCIAL //Twitter: https://twitter.com/jordanbpetersonInstagram: https://instagram.com/jordan.b.petersonFacebook: https://facebook.com/drjordanpeterson// SPONSORS //For Advertising Inquiries, visit https://advertisecast.com/TheJordanBPetersonPodcast

Fortitude: American Resilience | Dan Crenshaw | The Jordan B. Peterson Podcast S4: E71 [Video]

This episode was recorded on September 30, 2021.Congressman Dan Crenshaw and I discuss the fallout of withdrawing from Afghanistan and the details of the 20-plus-year conflict. We talk about life as a US congressman and his experience as a US Navy SEAL. About social media and politics–especially in relation to modern conservatism. And about climate change. On that note, we also examined Dan’s recently-published ”Fortitude: American Resilience in the Era of Outrage.”Dan is a retired Navy SEAL with five deployments overseas during the Afghan and Iraq wars. While in Afghanistan, an IED blast led to Dan losing his right eye. Crenshaw was elected to Congress in 2018, where he serves on the Energy and Commerce Committee (broadest jurisdiction out of all legislative committees). Dan also serves on the House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis.

That was day one” – Dan Crenshaw[9:00] Exploring the details of the new Taliban rule[11:45] “I come from the Special Ops community. I also come from the intelligence community. You have to work with shady characters sometimes but this wasn’t one of those cases, this was a time to put your foot down and refuse to let this happen” – Dan Crenshaw[13:00] Crenshaw talks about all the common-sense failure of the planned withdrawal and the politics that made a reasonable exit impossible[13:45] “Do you know what ‘slogan’ means? It’s from Welsh. It literally means ‘battle cry of the dead’” – Jordan Peterson[16:30] The nature of an endless war against the Taliban[20:45] Life as a US Congressman[26:25] “The Majority rules absolutely in the House. Nancy Pelosi only has a 4-vote majority and they just kick our buts all the time. We [Republicans] have no power” – Dan Crenshaw[32:30] Social media in politics[34:45] “The job of a representative is to explain things [clearly]” – Dan Crenshaw[37:00] How are conservatives engaging with the youth? What’s the current message?[50:00] Jordan outlines what he sees and the inherent diversity in the political world as per human psychology[51:30] “Well, you let these diverse people be free so they can have ideas that might be appropriate for the next problem and then you let them talk, which is why free speech is so important.” – Jordan Peterson[54:30] The complexity of climate change politics. Capitalism and the free market as testing grounds for what’s actually valuable. Highlighting the anti-capitalist sentiments that seem to come mixed with climate change beliefs, making solutions like nuclear power less likely[1:03:00] “I’m much more afraid of the people dealing with climate change than of climate change itself” – Jordan Peterson[1:13:30] “Cheap energy means wealth–directly, with virtually no intermediation” – Jordan Peterson[1:14:00] Overview of new proposed climate change legislation in the US.

They’re the most powerful tool we possess” Angus Fletcher[03:04] “When you realize stories have the power to change how our mind works, to troubleshoot it, to make it more resilient, more creative, more scientific—to do all these things… When you couple the power of stories with the human brain, you throw open the doors to anything” AF[03:53] The problem with literary studies. How stories empower us and improve performance[07:06] Wonderworks and the story of courage in Homer’s Iliad[12:40] “Literature and scripture are synonyms.

Grey[14:44] What are the 2 kinds of stories?[19:12] Story thinking[19:22] “Human cognition is largely narrative. We process the world narratively” AF[22:12] “The wonder of being on this earth… is to build stories and [empower people] to tell their own” AF “And to unite us in a collective story so we can work towards the same ends” JP[23:00] Why are certain stories so compelling?[24:48] The zone of proximal development[25:44] “Being enthralled is a manifestation of the instinct that specifies the zone of proximal development” JP[32:14] “The flip side of anxiety is creativity—they’re both about restless energy” AF[33:31] What’s the source of dreams?[33:55] “We have this vast knowledge in embodied action.” A great storyteller takes “images that reflect a compelling pattern of behavior [and verbalizes them]” JP[34:56] Abstract representation of patterns as a dream-source[31:24] The ideal spirit transcending the individual; Jung’s Pleroma[38:43] Computational power, stories, and the differences between the abstract and particular[38:48] “Much of what drives the demand for higher computational resources is… producing artificial realities for fantasy simulation” JP [45:51] Christianity and Star Wars[46:35] “Star Wars is Christianity for atheist nerds” JP[46:56] “We are most happy when we don’t perceive ourselves as inheriting an archetypal story” AF[48:16] “We see in stories, and this is partly why our eyes are adapted… so that people can see [the white in] our eyes. It’s really important because [our eyes point at] what they’re interested in. We can see what they value [and] infer their motivation” JP[50:36] Literature and psychedelic experiences[51:27] “In psychotherapy… you’re trying to hammer the person’s narrative into a single… functional unit” JP[55:31] Trauma, unconscious mapping, and dream analysis[56:56] “Any territory you cannot perceive through the overlaid projection of a narrative map is traumatizing” JP [59:59] Jung, Joseph Campbell, and Erich Neumann[01:02:51] Jung vs Darwin on stories[01:10:18] “Literature can build emotional and intellectual resilience” AF[01:14:55] Being adaptive is “to be emotionally and intellectually resilient” AF[01:15:54] Creative training; measuring creativity#Creativity #Stories #Jung #Literature #Darwin// SUPPORT THIS CHANNEL //Newsletter: https://linktr.ee/DrJordanBPetersonDonations: https://jordanbpeterson.com/donate// COURSES //Discovering Personality: https://jordanbpeterson.com/personalitySelf Authoring Suite: https://selfauthoring.comUnderstand Myself (personality test): https://understandmyself.com// BOOKS //Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life: https://jordanbpeterson.com/Beyond-Order12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos: https://jordanbpeterson.com/12-rules-for-lifeMaps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief: https://jordanbpeterson.com/maps-of-meaning// LINKS //Website: https://jordanbpeterson.comEvents: https://jordanbpeterson.com/eventsBlog: https://jordanbpeterson.com/blogPodcast: https://jordanbpeterson.com/podcast// SOCIAL //Twitter: https://twitter.com/jordanbpetersonInstagram: https://instagram.com/jordan.b.petersonFacebook: https://facebook.com/drjordanpeterson// SPONSORS //Interested in sponsoring my audio podcast?

Meaning, Awe, and the Conceptualization of God | Jordan Peterson Compilation | | JBP Podcast S4: E61 [Video]

Over the last few weeks, we have put together a series entitled “Meaning, Awe and the Conceptualization of God” for the Jordan B Peterson Podcast. This series was built around investigating the various methods and practices that humans use to conceptualize God. This investigation leads us down the path of exploring meaning and awe. Why are we struck by awe when viewing a beautiful painting? Why does walking inside the door of a great Cathedral take our breath away? What is the relationship between these experiences and God? Featured in this compilation:@Jonathan Pageau @John Vervaeke @Bishop Robert Barron Stephen BlackwoodRoland GriffithsIain McGilchristStephen FryRandall Wallace@Word on Fire Institute (Christopher Kaczor and Matthew Petrusek)This series was released in three parts on all audio platforms. The series was popular enough for us to make a video version of the series, and we decided to put them all together in one video.

It has intelligibility to it that connects us to the world… so that we can interact and be informed by it” Jon Vervaeke[07:22] “Our mental framing is transparent like a pair of glasses, but there are times we need to step back and, by taking the glasses off and examining them, consider our framing structure” JV[09:10] “When you look at the world there is a central point of focus. When you focus on the point with your eyes it becomes very clear… until we no longer perceive anything by the edge of our vision. It’s nothingness, it’s just not there” Jordan Peterson[13:56] Bishop Barron’s view on meaning and religion[14:23] “I would say that meaning is to be in a purposeful relationship to a value” Bishop Robert Barron[17:55] “So I’m talking to you, which I believe is a good, but it’s nested in a higher good and a still higher good, so finally I want not just this particular good but good itself—that’s a religious relationship” BRB[18:20] Pageau’s opening thoughts on meaning and religion[19:56] “The reason we perceive hierarchy is because we are always judging… or trying to evaluate whether something’s good” Pageau[20:31] Jordan’s brief foray into “mini-celebrations”[21:53] The idea of revelation[24:46] “It isn’t obvious to me that we see objects—we see patterns” JP[27:40] “Like a Rolling Stone—it wasn’t the first song I liked, but it was the first that rocked my world and rearranged my mind, and I think that’s where real value is” BRB[28:42] Underlying causes of the crisis of meaning[30:10] “Something that starts with Scotus… and goes into the heart of the scientific revolution is that there’s no such thing as levels—reality just is” JV[31:00] Science around the hierarchy of intelligibility and connectedness[33:00] What is science?[39:00] “There’s an epistemic hierarchy and science does not belong on the top” BRB[42:00] “As scientists, we are motivated by a narrative we don’t understand scientifically… The whole enterprise is driven by a dream whose reality can’t be encapsulated within the process itself” JP[44:00] The ignorance in assuming science OR religion are correct[44:40] Eminationist ontologies[55:30] Religious experiences[01:07:30] The book of Revelations as a psychedelic experience.[01:17:30] The Psychedelic problem and why psychedelics are useful in communal experiences.[01:26:00] Jordan’s biblical lectures[01:32:00] What are the guests working on?[01:36:00] Beauty in churches[01:38:00] Growing up Christian[01:44:00] Possibility is real[01:50:00] Joining religion and science[02:03:30] Wrapping up#Meaning #Psychology #Religion// SUPPORT THIS CHANNEL //Newsletter: https://linktr.ee/DrJordanBPetersonDonations: https://jordanbpeterson.com/donate// COURSES //Discovering Personality: https://jordanbpeterson.com/personalitySelf Authoring Suite: https://selfauthoring.comUnderstand Myself (personality test): https://understandmyself.com// BOOKS //Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life: https://jordanbpeterson.com/Beyond-Order12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos: https://jordanbpeterson.com/12-rules-for-lifeMaps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief: https://jordanbpeterson.com/maps-of-meaning// LINKS //Website: https://jordanbpeterson.comEvents: https://jordanbpeterson.com/eventsPodcast: https://jordanbpeterson.com/podcast// SOCIAL //Twitter: https://twitter.com/jordanbpetersonInstagram: https://instagram.com/jordan.b.petersonFacebook: https://facebook.com/drjordanpeterson// SPONSORS //Interested in sponsoring my audio podcast?

The Symbolic World – a lecture by Jonathan Pageau [Video]

Our friend @Jonathan Pageau gave a lecture on the conceptual structure of Genesis for an event that was orchestrated by the Montreal Jung Society. Jordan felt that this lecture would serve as a wonderful adjunct to his biblical series, also on Genesis, featured on this channel. Thank you to the Montreal Jung Society and Jonathan for letting us release this video on our channel. We hope that you find it useful.Event Title: The Symbolic World – a lecture by Jonathan PageauEvent Description: “Meaning is showing itself to no longer be an overlay to an arbitrary world of phenomena, but rather the very pattern of reality. Through the questions of emergence, attention and consciousness which have been permeating so many fields in the recent past, the reality of pattern, ritual and image have also come to the fore. Meaning is showing itself, in a burgeoning post-secular age, as no longer only a subjective overlay to an arbitrary world of phenomena, but rather the very pattern of reality itself. In this frame we come to realize that the archetypal truths are not mostly biological and mental constructs in humans; they are firstly the inescapable patterning of the indefinite potential of the world as it encounters intelligence.” // SUPPORT THIS CHANNEL //Newsletter: https://linktr.ee/DrJordanBPetersonDonations: https://jordanbpeterson.com/donate// COURSES //Discovering Personality: https://jordanbpeterson.com/personalitySelf Authoring Suite: https://selfauthoring.comUnderstand Myself (personality test): https://understandmyself.com// BOOKS //Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life: https://jordanbpeterson.com/Beyond-Order12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos: https://jordanbpeterson.com/12-rules-for-lifeMaps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief: https://jordanbpeterson.com/maps-of-meaning// LINKS //Website: https://jordanbpeterson.comEvents: https://jordanbpeterson.com/eventsBlog: https://jordanbpeterson.com/blogPodcast: https://jordanbpeterson.com/podcast// SOCIAL //Twitter: https://twitter.com/jordanbpetersonInstagram: https://instagram.com/jordan.b.petersonFacebook: https://facebook.com/drjordanpeterson// SPONSORS //Interested in sponsoring my audio podcast?
