    Maps of Meaning 1: Context and Background

    Here is the first episode in a 12 part series that could only be found on youtube until now!
    In this lecture, I discuss the context within which the theory I am delineating through this course emerge: that of the cold war. What is belief? Why is it so important to people? Why will they fight to protect it? I propose that belief unites a culture's expectations and desires with the actions of its people, and that the match between those two allows for cooperative action and maintains emotional stability. I suggest, further, that culture has a deep narrative structure, presenting the world as a forum for action, with characters representing the individual, the known, and the unknown -- or the individual, culture and nature -- or the individual, order and chaos.

A life-changing lecture series

There is tremendous wisdom in this lecture series and I have become a better human being from listening. I’m very grateful.

12 Rule Breaker ,

A light in the dark.

Just essential. Thank you Dr. Peterson.

Compelling Charlatan

He’s undoubtedly a gripping speaker but seems to be punching well above his weight and lacks intellectual rigor or academic standards.

He sets up straw man arguments and appears confused about the diversity of ideological positions so uses catch-all terms like “the radical postmodern neo marxists”.

Eventually you gather he doesn’t really know what he’s talking about. Apart from clinical psychology I wouldn’t take him very seriously on many topics
