      You will never be a woman and in 1000 years, if and when your bones are dug up, the archeologist will correctly identify that you were in fact a man- not a woman.
      Your philosophy is built on Solipsism, vanity and sand.

    Greetings from Brazil! I have a request for a video essay: how should we behave towards celebrities that are called out on past conducts. It is a question that deeply troubles me, and I would like to better understand the variables involved to make up my mind. Am I supposed to set Picasso, David Bowie, almost every rock star from 70s and 80s, Kevin Spacey, and many others asside when I have already been influenced by their work? I would love to hear your take on it. Cheers

    I need practice in not excluding TERFs and Nazis from discourse. I genuinely try not to, It's likely that both have something useful to say. About motorways for example. But.. while everyone has at least one ideology, not everyone has an asshole. Just ask anyone who's had a radical colostomy. A minority, sure, but minorities should not be ignored.

      @Abel Abel A debate always helps both speakers to clear and sharpen their point of view. they might not converge to a single truth at the end but usually their arguments become stronger toward the end by cutting the BS. Otherwise, with no debate we'll have isolated islands of unlimited BS for everyone:/

    Abigail can you please sort out an endless loop of a thought process that I can't figure out. It's the dichotomy of mitigating harm by voting for centrist Labour vs voting for a different lefty party that's more in line with my beliefs.
    Pleaaase make a video on this dichotomy.
    The arguments are made constantly on twitter and I keep changing my mind, always acting as devil's advocate when I meet a person from the other side. I just cannot decide and need a smart person to figure this out for me 😭

  • Daniel Satanove
    Daniel Satanove Day ago +1

    Yes, let's look at subtext. The subtext of how you present those philosopher quotes in particular. You present them as a jumbled wall of overlapping text and reading, coupled by amusing music from the N64 Zelda games. We obviously aren't meant to read this, and furthermore, we are to find the difficulty and complexity of these texts amusing. You then cut it off abruptly, and tell us you will give the "easy" version.
    What is the subtext here? That these philosophers are amusingly overcomplicating things? That the viewer need not read any of them? That would be ironic given how you accuse Peterson of not doing the reading, while first encouraging your viewers to also not so the reading, while also presenting an oversimplified conception of phenomenology as comporting towards objects "as," that phenomenology is about experience. This is a conception of phenomenology that a Heideggerian, a large portion of phenomenologists, would disagree with and for good reason.

  • J Doveton
    J Doveton Day ago

    Yes. Men like Peterson are always modernists, and anti-postmodern. "It's like he refuses to read any philosophy written after 1967".
    You've summed this up very well. I am colleagues with a professor and famous writer... let's call him the Jordan Peterson of Uxbridge... who has the same issue. They hate postmodernism because they don't like any philosophy which undermines their claim to objective truth.
    "...what they hear is 'Questioning the idea that I can be right [...] that I can win the debate.'" Very fragile.

    Who could possibly still care about Jordan Peterson at this point. The guy was exposed as a fraud ages ago and he isn't taken seriously even in right wing circles anymore. To make a video about Peterson rn despite being more pressing issues to discuss is such a massive dead horse beating that I can only imagine how great the hate boner that the Twitterinos and tumblerinas of the world need to have to still care about this guy until now.

    My love, I am not sure what are the specific critiques you're making towards Mr. Peterons that "exposes" flaws present in his ideology. This video seems to be more like a "because I agree with the far-left, inherently I must disagree with you." I am not sure how is that supposed to be a strong case against Peterson's ideology or ideologies. The visuals are astonishing though. The philosophical case is....well, not persuasive in the least.

    I think your analysis was thoughtful and your method of delivery was very good. However, I think you’re insinuating that Peterson is coming from an inconsistent philosophical mindset. The distinction between psychology and philosophy is especially important when dealing with the words of Peterson.
    His works seek to provide some simple resolution to complex problems of competing ideology. One of those solutions is to fight for the freedom of your independent and inherited thoughts. This is the major source of controversy surrounding him. It’s also regularly taken put of the context of his bigger idea.
    Peterson does offer competing arguments however. I think it’s a struggle between the psychological phenomenon on which he is an expert and the phenomenology he advocates. I think he brilliantly uses the former to defend the validity of the stories he searches. He’s very successful at this.
    The Kant-Marx/Hume-Smith competing ideals can be observed as a divergence of philosophical thought. When you say he hasn’t read philosophy since 1969 its a kind of weak accusation. I wonder how many of those who read Derrida also read Sowell.

    6:50 I don't see how any of those examples are masculine, it's something everyone just does, thats you imposing your own worldview here, I just find them funny.
    13:00 UK is ~86% white. That's pretty close if you ask me, unless we're fighting for the 4% exactly, having "equal amount" of minorities in each workforce is physically impossible unless you're planning on doubling or decimating UK's population...
    Also, your fire/antifire rants are meh imo, I guess I'm just not into that kinda humour.
    Lastly, Peterson is as flawed as anyone is, you can absorb some good from his talks if you can filter out the obviously religious talk, I liked the contrast between this video and Daisy Chadra's views and developments over the years

    I may agree that there are "hidden notes" behind statements which have a social or political dimension, but I can't imagine any "hidden notes" behind statements like "Pi is an irrtational number" or "The Earth resolves around the Sun".

    Judging by their interpretation/description of JBP's second book, 12 rules for life, i have to assume they never read the book. They probably only read reviews of the book. First and foremost, the book is a self-help book. Secondly, in the foreword, a clear idea is illuminated: "Your (reader) personal values often determine what you find to be factual objective". This book doesn't tell you how to think. It offers a new perspective. Post-Modernist doesn't believe in new perspective, but unfortunately for them, the majority of the people who picked up the book were grateful of this new perspective being offered.

    A Jordan Peterson fan here who just wants to say that this video is great! Definitely made me think more closely about what he says. A lot of my friends think his stuff is rubbish, and while I do tend to agree with him on a lot of points, I am thoroughly creeped out by the worship some people have for him. I think that people on both sides are wrong about him. He knows more than most cursory people would admit/know, and he also doesn’t know everything. Thanks for the thoughts!

    • Liam O'Brien
      Liam O'Brien 2 days ago

      @Apm totally agree with everything you just said. But I do think that sometimes people jump on him for not either revealing how he feels about the other side of the topic, or just not stating obvious things. A good example was the initial trans issue that got him into hot water in the first place. People spun it as anti-trans because he didn’t seem to express overwhelming sympathy for trans people and I could see how people would watch one or two clips of him talking about that and see him as a bigot. Not that I agree with the idea of virtue signaling all the time. I also think he came off as hostile but that’s his style. And also I think he was frustrated that people were insinuating that he didn’t like the law because he hates trans people.

    • Apm

      I think it's safe to assume the majority of the people who like jordon know he doesn't know everything, he isn't a perfect human. But generally when compared to most influencers out there, especially in his field, hes right about alot, and we trust and believe because we see the way he thinks, you see how open he is when he discusses anything. It's very clear hes actively seeking to find the truth. Not to fit a narrative or his perceptions,..maybe he does but I'd argue that being natural to humans, he does a pretty good job, maybe even the best. And judging by the immense amount of help and positive effect he's had on people,including myself, we tend to trust what he says. They type of person he is, truthful and helpful, well meaning is why he's built up the base he's had. And rightly well deserved.
