    Beyond Order Jordan B. Peterson Montreal | Host: Jonathan Pageau

    We had the honor of having our dear friend Jonathan Pageau host this Beyond Order lecture in Montreal on May 23rd, 2022. Jonathan opens the show by describing how he first heard (and subsequently met) Jordan. This event, then, serves as a continuation of the conversations they first had. Throughout this hour-and-a-half-long event, Dr. Peterson and Jonathan Pageau discuss perception, symbolism, values, and the relationship between perception and the cognitive scientist’s attempts to understand consciousness.

Dr. Farrell conducts communication workshops, and his writings have been frequently featured in The New York Times.

    In this episode, Dr. Farrell and I discuss issues that lead to mass homicides committed by young men.

Lecture Talks

Is JP doing any more public lecture series? The older 12 Rules lectures are fantastic. I can’t find any recent lectures in pods or Youtube. Thanks for any info.

Respect and Admiration

Jordan Peterson is an incredibly important person for the times we live in. I feel like he is the old wise man all young guys seek out wisdom from (I know I do). I’ve read 12 rules and beyond order which are 2 great books. I have no idea why the mainstream lies about Jordan, because he’s trying to uplift society. You are making a huge impact on people! Nothing but respect for Jordan Peterson.
