Haven't read it.. about a year ago I watched all his maps of meaning stuff, then more recently the biblical lectures. It is pretty hard to argue his conclusions about the life lessons that can be derived from all these old stories, I felt inspired at the time.
Now, idk, I don't hate the guy like some people here do... at least he is spreading some ideas single-handedly that the entire new-right hasn't been capable of so far. The stodgy traditionalism is not really for me, though I can see how it is useful for a lot of people/
There are probably better books for self help, or good supplements to 12 rules, pic related.

It's easy to hate Peterson based on the circle jerking cunts that now constitute his fanbase but the book really isn't bad, nothing groundbreaking but it was an interesting enough read for me personally.

But honestly one glance into the community surrounding him on the net and it seems to be just a bunch of cunts who want to fit into a group unironically posting pictures of their clean rooms memeing about lobsters.

It's hard to tell really because often he talks about not worshipping ideologies and thinking of them as perfect and being willing to be corrected etc...

I'm not really an authority on this and I'm sure I'll be corrected, but basically, as cultures modernize, symbols traditionally employed to represent a meaningful reality begin to take a life of their own until the symbol becomes the "meaningful reality."

People on the left hate him because he's a traditionally-minded guy, a classical liberal, who refuses to use government-compelled gender neutral pronouns to address trans people. They also just hate him because he's a white male who advocates for freedom of speech and free expression, and speaks out for individualism instead of identity politics.

People on the (far) right hate him because he continuously bashes ethnonationalism (right wing identity politics) without ever actually debating the issue with people who have offered to debate him (Richard Spencer, Millennial Woes, etc.) Meanwhile Peterson routinely calls people who refuse to debate him cowards, so he's a bit of a hypocrite there. Also it is obvious that he knows a lot of stuff about race and IQ and certain influential...religious...minorities, but refuses to say anything with any weight on these subjects, despite going on and on and on about "tell the truth! no matter what!"

So far as I can surmise his preoccupation with Neechuh is on the psychological level, being that he Peterson is a psychologist, because Nietzsche was the philosopher to predict the tens of millions of deaths in the 20th century that would occur from people trying and failing to create their own values outside of religiosity. So for Peterson he's a bit of a prophet for lack of a less sensational word, and especially within Peterson's sphere of influence (his course study and book MoM are both to do with how people come to have the values they do) he is the paramount philosopher to take into consideration. Also I would figure since he studies Jung and Jung cites Nietzsche a lot too, it's could've even just been his breadth (or lack) of exposure.

Or maybe the entire platform of Peterson is mass appeal and trying to motivate them into higher learning? Nietzche isn't very hard to understand and is extremely important in terms of influence on modern thought.

Why wouldn't Peterson only recommend Nietzche? I've heard him mention others like Kierkegaard and Hegel, but if people were to start with something it ought to be Nietzche

RavySnake
RavySnake

Who exactly are these books being recommended to? People who don't read? Do we really need Peterson to "recommend" Hemingway, Orwell, Dostoevsky, etc? These authors are all widely known and probably encountered in high school. Nothing wrong with the books but the only thing that lends this list a shred of uniqueness is the inclusion of a few hardboiled novels (and even then they are literally the three most well known novels in the hardboiled detective idiom). Recommending Nietzsche in a vacuum without other philosophers is also a complete joke. This list is so basic and safe that it genuinely triggers me.

Nietzche isn't very hard to understand

What's good about that article? It's just someone who doesn't like Peterson, for some reason.
Wow, saying that statements in a self-help book are truisms or trivial... that's no argument. Of course, a motivational text will be some straight forward statements that you mostly know already - nothing wrong with composing such a text like that. Peterson is also pop-science to some extent, as in he goes on tangents discussing biological research findings and such. And then he goes to quote the bible and makes conclusions and guidelines like any preacher. Nothing wrong with that.

Why is it even so mysterious that Peteron is likes? To me it just seems that right-winged ideology has its perks and Peterson is somebody you can accept even when having gone through left-winged brainwashing all you live. It's literally right-light. The conservative parts. Father figure meme.

Here's an actual takedown that pins down his hypocrisy/weakness to a point:

the people he's fighting aren't postmodernists, they're SJWs and they could not read a postmodernists intelligently if their life literally depended on it. he just thinks postmodernism sounds fancy and that nobody will call on him on that shit.
second up on this: he's mainly focused on jung, and jung is considered to have beat heidegger to the punch on inventing postmodernism's idea of the self. think about how fired a professor should get for that before they acquire tenure, and you'll see why the system accepts SJWs bullshit also.

those are the main concerns if you want to learn about jung or postmodernism- he's literally as ignorant on those subjects as an SJW who thinks history needs to be renamed herstory so the female latin word historia, can stop raping her with male oppression.

I think this is the best way to deal with him. If you make the brainlets who follow him to realize how dumb he is he will lose all his influence over them. Alt-righters are tribal people. If you show one of their leaders as weak they will ditch him.

Absolutely. Nobody wants to be associated with someone who's deemed pathetic. It's like with the 9/11 truthers back then. When people engaged with them in good faith and tried to explain them why they were wrong they were only being legitimized but when we started mocking them they suddenly disappeared. Ridiculing someone is an incredible powerful tool and we shouldn't be so scared of using it if it's for a good cause.

And now and then you know you read in the newspaper about someone who’s, you know, being pushed a little bit too far on some day that they’re unemployed and hungover and you know their relationship is just broken up and they do something absolutely brutal to their child and you think well “how could anyone do that” it’s like there’s a lot of history of terrible interactions between the mother and the child or the father and the child before something like that happens. So you know if you want to protect your child against the beast that’s inside you you might want to teach them to treat you with some respect so that you’re much more likely to be a civilized human being around them.

Peterson strikes me as an odd and slightly funny case.

He's like a manifestation of the crumbling status quo sent to renew itself using the limited wisdom that's both available and readily accepted (good luck trying to get westerners into mystic philosophy.)

He's entire modus operandi seems to be "avoid totalitarianism at all costs, do this by focusing on individual responsibility." The problem is though, as good as individual responsibility is, it can only take a society so far, especially one as complex and in dire need of restructuring as ours. Ironically, by refusing to address major issues of housing unaffordability, climate change, a loss of collective identity, insecure job markets, relentless advertising, etc. he's implicitly giving support to all the systems that are causing these issues, and by extension their ineffective "solutions" to the issues, which will only WORSEN the drive towards totalitarianism, not lessen it.

That's the greatest fault I see in Peterson's character, that he's a psychologist and so given to flights of fancy 'neuronormative' and societal relations/behavior. Although he has dually proven to me that not all psychologists are fucking idiots, he is obviously one in a very large number since he's the only one to rise to such prominence. Though of course I still believe that as a discipline psychology is a crock of shit designed to syphon money out of dumbass roasties.

Violence is action taken against anything unyielding, so to say that the threat of it is implicit across all strata of society is not a very crazy claim. Weren't it present it seems like nothing would ever get done, because people would be left with no recourse further than argument, which even when well made can be unheard by opponents. Maybe an entirely non-violent society would neither be a prosperous one.

Not Heidegger nor Jung (nor Wittgenstein for that matter) were proto-postmodernist. Just because Derrida is a postmodernist doesn't mean deconstructionism is necessarily postmodernist too. The problem with postmodernism is not deconstructionism but its focus on power dynamics which lead to the West current obsession with subverting its values. I do like Derrida and I know blue haired dykes thinking superhero films with black and female leads are the first steps to an utopia were not what he had in mind yet, to a degree, it's still a consequence to his ideas because ironically they lend itself to be molded and absorbed by consumerism in a way that Heidegger's ideas don't. Peterson is not really wrong. He's just too ignorant about philosophy to understand why he's right.

Jung and Heidegger are specifically postmodern because they are reactions to modernism. Jung's idea of meaning and its relation to the self is the first major break from modernism's ideas of progress.

Wittgenstein is specifically modernist. He's part of the logical postivists which Heidegger and Jung are reactions to, and that is why they are postmodernists and nobody with a brain would try to conflate them like you have. You are talking out of your ass and could not understand the authors you are talking about even if you had read them, which you haven't.

Peterson is wrong, and you're in no position to judge why or how and an eight year old with google could do better.

Here's a valid reason to hate him:

He's a hypocritical post-modernist. He doesn't believe in Jesus' resurrection and yet wants us and himself to follow Christianity, for practical reasons. Clearly what he is defending is that we should abide to some beliefs and principles because they make us feel good or help our lives a bit, not because they are true.

We still live in an age of grand metanarratives, some of which were pieced together by borrowing postmodern ideas.
SJWs are using cognizant irony
Peterson isn't shilling an alternative modernist perspective to theirs
It's not even that much of an alternative, it's just a different wrapping, and still modernism.

One side wants "female brains" to real, the other side wants "female bodies" to real. Both sides got outpaced by the shadowy third contender of modernism, actual science, around the point decades back they said it turns out we'd need more than six different types of gender badges and repeated samples from various sites in your body to hope to not miscategorize everyone, do we really want to do that or can society leave science alone and maybe call each other whatever they like or learn fucking science and we'll keep calling ourselves we even if we have to write papers with our cat.
Most people aren't that interested that the extensive testing to make sure they don't carry multiple chromosomes or DNA makeups is going to answer that social question. People who have bone marrow transplants from a different chromosomal sex are normally more worried about the aplastic anemia or cancer than anyone misgendering them because their blood tests read differently now. It's just not a priority for most people's lives to do that much real science.

Both Peterson and SJWs are sure though that science says they're right, and neither of them know science says they're wrong.

Both of them think thoughts the same way a fedora enlightens himself, and both of them rely on modernist narratives that
the world would be so much better if only everyone listens to our demands and dogma that nobody fucking sane cares about

Whether it's an SJW telling me to go vegan for health or Peterson's daughter telling me to go carnivore for health, they're both stuck around 1900 and not postmodern.

I disagree, I think he's very interested in keeping things "the way they are," mostly out of his deep-seated terror of totalitarianism. If he conceded that this society actually has a lot of structural problems, he would have to admit that there are things affecting people in society which ARE beyond their control, which he seemingly completely denies.

Lol. "Sheltered." I've witnessed years of domestic violence, shootings, drug overdoses, and all sorts of shit living in a housing project. I still think Peterson is wrong, because his message is basically "You should teach your kid to appreciate you, so that you don't feel under-appreciated, because then you might kill your kid."

Another take I came across was this:

What Peterson is basically advocating here is instead of the parent taking responsibility for "the beast inside them" and, you know, not abusing their child, the parent should teach the child to walk on eggshells in order that they don't do anything to "make" the parent abuse them.

This is 100% dysfunctional, abusive parenting and victim blaming. Seriously, fuck that.

Children are under no obligation to respect adults. It's up to the adults to earn the respect of children.

Basically, "You made me do it."

I've seen murder and can't get behind this shit, fuck calling me sheltered, lol. And even after seeing what I've seen I still don't think the potential for violence is beneath every discussion.

Well, I was wrong and I apologize about that. But that's a total misinterpretation of Peterson to make him seem more cynical and brutal than he really is. What he's saying is something anyone can agree with: Your children should respect you and you should do what you can to actually be and seem worthy of their respect, and should teach them the value of respecting you. Keep in mind that he's also speaking as a psychologist, and himself has in mind that he might be speaking to some people who might actually feel like abusing their kids/be gradually building up anger against them. From a psychologist's point of view, it's a bit -- if not outright -- mostly taboo to morally criticize and censure the patient, since that's counter-productive and will usually just offend them. Considering as if he's talking to "patients" (people with psychological tension and stressful lives who might feel like they might one day beat their patient), JBP morally criticizing them would be counterproductive. What is productive is offering a practical solution -- instead of just letting your kids disrespect you and letting all the resentment build up until you beat the shit out of them, try to work on making sure they respect you from the beginning.

Note that he doesn't say "fear" but "respect." He's not some cynical Machiavelli (leaving aside the trite debate on whether the Prince was satire or not) or something. It seems like you're seeing in Peterson what you want to see -- Peterson is cynical, Peterson is wrong, etc. keep in mind that Peterson has seen shit too, not only in his life but as a clinical psychologist -- you talk to people who have been raped, abused, perhaps have done the raping and abusing, etc. he also talks about the formative event of being shown around a prison and talking to murderers as part of his research iirc.

TechHater
TechHater

lol defensive

I don't know much about Peterson's views of family dynamics but from what you say they seem confucian, and so follow a theme of his ideas being the same as those found in ancient texts. Your worldview of "parents have to earn the respect of their children" might be valid but I can't get behind it because ideas about family dynamics have been pretty standard in most cultures for thousands of years (that the parents and especially father should command unquestioning respect) and our civilization is still around. Maybe I'm just a puppet of the patriarchy or maybe those ideas can simply be in conflict. I would say though that respect cannot really exist without being earned, and so often enough what exists in its stead between a parent and child is latent fear and resentment masquerading as acquiescence only to backfire when the child gains some measure of independence.

Maybe the ideal of unflinching respect is strived toward both by parent and child.

Never mentions if the daughter is okay or if he ever does anything to get the kid to stop repeatedly stepping on her fingers at any point.

I'm thinking about my own father. He had multiple identities that he came about illegally and fathered me, just like he had fathered two other children in the past, under a false name, and my mom never found out until I was older. She also learned of his extensive criminal background, but that was long after he had beat the shit out of her a few times and had multiple affairs (even with men, one of whom he sexually assaulted). He ended up in legal trouble, which is how this all came to light. Turns out he also stole from his work, and sold drugs to make money on the side.

So you know if you want to protect your child against the beast that’s inside you you might want to teach them to treat you with some respect so that you’re much more likely to be a civilized human being around them.

So how am I to enter into a filial relationship with this person and respect him? Why should he command unquestioning respect when the relationship is doomed before it even starts? How would my respect have prevented anything?

But still, even with that as my progenitor I don't believe this idea that there's some beast within people just waiting to come out.

So how am I to enter into a filial relationship with this person and respect him? Why should he command unquestioning respect when the relationship is doomed before it even starts? How would my respect have prevented anything?

He is half the reason for your existence. You would not be alive were it not for his sperm. Your debt to him is literally in-payable, no matter how much of a scoundrel he is. The worse he is, the more of an opportunity he gives you to be a saint, the more he is helping you to possibly be a better person by loving him anyway.

It's a ridiculous bromide to try to justify someone's shitty upbringing by saying "well at least your father taught who not to be." Yeah, fucking obviously, but more than often that shitty person raises another shitty person, so the question is whether undue respect should be given to someone despite their actions. I would restate that respect in this case is ill-fitted for such a relationship, but fear fits perfectly.
Obviously he didn't earn your respect, but had he done anything to earn and keep it, it would have been better for you to then give him the benefit of the doubt in future regarding respect.

hurr durr actually postmodernism is what comes after modernism
Wow, how did we miss that. Are you retarded or something, bro? When people talk about postmodernism, or at least when Peterson does it and therefor what is being talked about ITT, they are referring specifically to poststructuralism, which is an specific answer to something a lot more specific than just modernism, but you already know that, you fucking moron. You just get off from taking a conversation out of its context so you can look clever by arguing about the semantics. Congratulations, you're as much of a brainlet as Peterson. Now take your reddit spacing where it belongs.

it's what's comes after
There are still modernists, we haven't got to "after". What postmodernism does is attack the principles of modernism: if it doesn't address modernism, it's not postmodern. There are other movements like surrealism which are neither of these things and have elements of both because they exist in the same time period.
Similarly, poststructuralism is a set of arguments which seeks to illustrate structuralism's failures. Taking either side in that did not appeal to Derrida, so he specifies he is not a poststructuralist, even though he is writing after structuralism has faltered greatly, and writing about (but not specifically for or against) some of the same principles and ideas floating around at the time.
You're objectively a moron and everyone who's read books by and/or on the authors who are not Memerson in this chain, or who have even a cursory understanding of modernism and postmodernism, knows you're a pseud.

well at least your father taught who not to be
I said your father gives you the potential to be good by acting good to him. Read more carefully. The idea I am getting across is that he is giving you a chance to be good. Without conflict, without a negative force, there is no potential to manifest positively.

WTF? This can't be real LMAO. How can you misunderstand Heidegger this much? Heidegger literally believed in the opposite of that.

well actually
Bro, stop doing this. If you get told something and you understand it perfectly well what necessity do you have to change the course of the conversation so you can show off how well read you are. This is not reddit, bro. No one is going to give you an up vote for explaining something that has been implicit from the beginning. Are you autistic? And If I'm a pseud so be it, but I don't really care about Peterson anyway. I just don't like redittors being smug in my board.
Also the "postmodernism is what comes after modernism" was just a throwback to something DFW, another brainlet, once said.

A "good" person can still be manifested without conflict or negativity, it's just a question whether that person is truly good given his or her limit in choice. There are circumstances under which it is easier to be good than bad, such as in an organized religion or an organization in general. Back to the point: conflict as a means of teaching one to be good is a bad means. It can easily teach him or her to be bad in response in order to lessen his or her own pain. The only way a father can go without giving that chance to be good to his child is by absence.

The father and child relationship is likely the most one-sided relationship any given person has, and so being good to one who has so much power over you will ultimately teach you to be good to all who would do you harm as well. It's not a winning tactic to be good without question.

Pretty much what this guy said . He tried to go after Peterson work as a psychologist but didn't have any clue of what he was talking about. He did the same shit Peterson does with Derrida. And by the tone of the whole thing and his previous articles you can tell the guy only real problem with Peterson is that Peterson prominence among the youth undermines his idealized vision of the left.

That was pretty great and he's spot on. Peterson deliberated ambiguous ideas would be laughed off at any analytic philosophy department. You can't properly discuss with someone who's suggesting something instead of saying it. I assure you that if someone pushed him into answer why he can't make clear statements he would be exposed immediately.

If you think anything Robinson writes is "pretty great" there's a high chance you're a zealot.
The man coincidentally suffers from a lack of critical thinking whenever it would hurt him ideologically to act otherwise. Let's not even mention the pointless provocative shit he does to get more clicks.

He's not alt right by any decent definition of the term. He's not an ethnonationalist. He's not anti-semitic to any degree.
I never said that he is, Memerson knows how to sail in both shallow and deep waters and he's not stupid. So he'll never say something outrageously stupid. But I like to point out how memers like you who have no concept of actual history parrot the claims of people more intelligent than you at face value.
You stand on the ground they won and have the arrogance to condemn them?
No, I still on the grounds they plundered and raped for centuries and left in the abysmal conditions. My ancestors were dying of famine or drought and the so called British liberal, most of them of same breeds, called the atrocities of imperialism a gift that Britain imparted on the land. Stop being a faggot and assuming things like

Depends what you mean by metaphysics. If you mean it in a classical way yes but Heidegger has his own interpretation of a post-Kantian definition of the word which allows him to be on call even Nietzsche metaphysical without looking like a complete dick.

You can continue to move goalposts by saying things that I never typed out but that wouldn't make it the actual case. I don't think Memerson has some grand agenda, I just think he's an opportunist. I don't think he's alt right, ethno-nationalist. And he's as much a closet facist as an average Randtard is.
But yeah, keep saying ideology, drunk on ideology or possessed by ideology or or ideological bubble or whatever. People like Peterson are literally internet memes to me and everyone not living in US/Canada and you can be rest assured I don't lose any sleep over Peterson suddenly becoming too famous or the rise of ultra right or whatever.

So far as I can surmise his preoccupation with Neechuh is on the psychological level, being that he Peterson is a psychologist, because Nietzsche was the philosopher to predict the tens of millions of deaths in the 20th century that would occur from people trying and failing to create their own values outside of religiosity.

Didn't he himself say that psychology and medicine weren't really even sciences because they have the objective of creating something, or bettering something, but they aren't purely based on non-value driven understanding? Maybe I'm remembering that wrong, perhaps he said Therapy and Medicine.

If you want to appear very profound and convince people to take you seriously, but have nothing of value to say, there is a tried and tested method. First, take some extremely obvious platitude or truism.
But if you're truly profound, make sure to start off with incomplete sentences.
This is what Harvard buys you.

How fucking out of touch are you? That is literally not what he says. It goes like this:
fucker locks eyes with Memerson
proceeds to be a fucker anyways
the fucker clearly thinks he can fuck with adults, because at that point, he's no fucking with his daughter but with him
why does the fucker think so? because he thinks adults are pathetic
memerson proceeds to bring his daughter away
and contemplates that the fucker would be better off if he were taught that adults have authority
The amount of misinterpretation his stuff gets only shows how fucking well off and sheltered the average westerner is.
