54 - Aspen Ideas Festival: From the Barricades of the Culture Wars

From the Aspen Ideas Festival, recorded Tuesday, June 26, 2018. Jordan Peterson, author of the best-selling 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos, may be one of the most famous intellectuals in North America today. He also may be among the most misunderstood. His fans say that he’s saved their lives, and detractors say that he’s the gateway drug to the alt-right. Who is this psychologist-philosopher whom so many of us had never heard of two years ago, and what does he really believe? Featuring Jordan Peterson in conversation with Bari Weiss.

50 - Dr. Richard Haier: The Neuroscience of Intelligence

There is almost nothing more important to understand about people than intelligence. It can be measured more accurately than anything else in the social sciences. It differs tremendously and importantly between individuals. It is the single most important determinant of life success. It's very existence, however, remains subject to substantive debate, most of it highly politicized. Dr. Richard Haier has recently written a major book on the topic, The Neuroscience of Intelligence (http://amzn.to/2em55A9 (https://www.youtube.com/redirect?q=http%3A%2F%2Famzn.to%2F2em55A9&event=video_description&v=PY4sShDt9to&redir_token=LmX9-BLC8j2TXWxndGVr4XEYkx98MTUyNzYxMDM5MkAxNTI3NTIzOTky)), summarized in the following manner: "This book introduces new and provocative neuroscience research that advances our understanding of intelligence and the brain. Compelling evidence shows that genetics plays a more important role than environment as intelligence develops from childhood, and that intelligence test scores correspond strongly to specific features of the brain assessed with neuroimaging. In understandable language, Richard J. Haier explains cutting-edge techniques based on genetics, DNA, and imaging of brain connectivity and function. He dispels common misconceptions, such as the belief that IQ tests are biased or meaningless, and debunks simple interventions alleged to increase intelligence. " We recently spent an hour and a half talking about such things.

This is an alternate posting of Ben Shapiro's May 6 premiere Sunday Special discussion with me (https://bit.ly/2I4czoU (https://www.youtube.com/redirect?q=https%3A%2F%2Fbit.ly%2F2I4czoU&v=vvSetcM-f3k&redir_token=Xo-zG_IOdqEQ76UXc1_yh2RSXgh8MTUyNjM5MzYxMkAxNTI2MzA3MjEy&event=video_description)). Ben and I had a very intense discussion about the nesting of human perception and cognition in the mythic world - a better discussion, I think, than I've had with anyone. I've added to the beginning of our discussion an update on available tickets for my US 12 Rules for Life tour, and an announcement of 10 additional Canadian dates (see www.jordanbpeterson.com/events).

47 - Warren Farrell - The Absolute Necessity of Fathers

I came across Dr. Warren Farrell's work a few years ago, when I read Why Men Earn More(https://amzn.to/2HX3Epj (https://www.youtube.com/redirect?event=video_description&v=v5O_FLUWYmg&q=https%3A%2F%2Famzn.to%2F2HX3Epj&redir_token=eQmBODuJLeReve33HwzB5ybb6W58MTUyNTg3NTI0OEAxNTI1Nzg4ODQ4)), a careful study of the many reasons for the existence of the "gender pay gap," attributed by ideologues of the identity-politics persuasion to systemic patriarchal prejudice and oppression.

We spent an intense 90 minutes discussing the crucial role played by fathers in child development, paying particular attention to play and delay of gratification.

45 - Australia's John Anderson & Dr. Jordan B Peterson: In Conversation

I was in Australia in mid-March of 2018, speaking in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne. While I was there, I had the privilege of speaking to former Deputy Prime Minister John Anderson (Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/johnandersonao/ (https://www.youtube.com/redirect?q=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fjohnandersonao%2F&event=video_description&v=U4NijLf3M-A&redir_token=QjNk4K8tywaSvLQ-iyW6kT1svdp8MTUyNDgzNzYwM0AxNTI0NzUxMjAz)), who is described accurately on Wikipedia as "handsome, well-educated and well-spoken." Mr. Anderson introduced one of my Australian lectures. We also had the opportunity to talk together for a few hours, and to complete this interview. We discussed many things -- responsibility, freedom, meaning in life, the polarization of viewpoints in the West, the ideological use of language and identity politics. It seems to me that the sensible fiscal policies Mr. Anderson pursued during his governmental tenure in Australia constitute a model for good governance in the West. Mr. Anderson has started a conversation series, where he discusses important philosophical, political and cultural issues. It can be found at https://johnanderson.net.au/media/ (https://johnanderson.net.au/media/) and on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtnY...

35 - Jacob: Wrestling with God

Lecture 13 in my Psychological Significance of the Biblical Stories lecture series. In this lecture, I present the second half of the story of Jacob, later Israel (he who struggles with God). After serving his time with his uncle Laban, and being deceived by him in the most karmic of manners, Jacob returns to his home country. On the way, he encounters an angel, or God Himself, wrestles through the night with Him. Successful in his encounter, he still sustains damage to his thigh, but earns the name Israel, and becomes the father of all those who to this day wrestle with God.

34 - The Perilous State of the University - Jonathan Haidt

I recently traveled to New York University to talk with Dr. Jonathan Haidt about, among other things, disgust, purity, fear and belief; the perilous state of the modern university; and his work with Heterodox Academy (https://heterodoxacademy.org/) an organization designed to draw attention to the lack of diversity of political belief in the humanities and the social sciences. Dr. Haidt is Professor of Ethical Leadership at New York University's Stern School of Business and a social psychologist. He studies the psychology of morality and the moral emotions. He has been described as a top global thinker by both Foreign Policy and Prospect magazines. Dr. Haidt is the author of three books: The newest is The Coddling of the American Mind: How Bad Ideas and Good Intentions are Setting up a Generation for Failure (http://amzn.to/2AN87a6). The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion (http://amzn.to/2yOOQnU) The Happiness Hypothesis: Finding Modern Truth in Ancient Wisdom (http://amzn.to/2hJ0TzT) His writings on diversity viewpoint for the Heterodox Academy are at (http://righteousmind.com/viewpoint-diversity/) Other links relevant to Jordan Peterson Videos: * 12 Rules for Life (Dr. Peterson's forthcoming book): http://amzn.to/2yvJf9L (%20http://amzn.to/2yvJf9L) * Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/jordanbpeterson (%20https://www.patreon.com/jordanbpeterson) * Self Authoring Suite: https://selfauthoring.com/ (%20https://selfauthoring.com/) * Understand Myself Personality Test: http://understandmyself.com/ (%20http://understandmyself.com/) * Jordan Peterson Website: http://jordanbpeterson.com/ (%20http://jordanbpeterson.com/) * Podcast: https://jordanbpeterson.com/jordan-b-peterson-podcast/ (https://jordanbpeterson.com/jordan-b-peterson-podcast/) * Reading List: https://jordanbpeterson.com/2017/10/great-books/ (%20https://jordanbpeterson.com/2017/10/great-books/) * Twitter: https://twitter.com/jordanbpeterson (%20https://twitter.com/jordanbpeterson)

33 - Jacob's Ladder

Lecture 13 in my Psychological Significance of the Biblical Stories lecture series. The Psychological Significance of the Biblical Stories starts up after a two month hiatus with the first half of the story of Jacob, the founder of Israel ("those who wrestle with God"), the man who robs his brother of his birthright, is deceived into marrying the wrong woman, and dreams of a stairway to heaven, in the ancient Shamanic tradition.

32 - Compelled Speech - Law Society of Ontario

Part 1 of this podcast is the video "A Call to Rebellion for Ontario Legal Professionals": (http://bit.ly/2yo4Jpe (https://www.youtube.com/redirect?v=FPpPnGA8rkQ&event=video_description&q=http%3A%2F%2Fbit.ly%2F2yo4Jpe&redir_token=QNq-6WA1xBhF0C3S-DFBp0_i-U98MTUwOTgxMDI3N0AxNTA5NzIzODc3)). Part 2 is the video: "Update: Law Society of Ontario Compelled Speech": (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPpPnGA8rkQ (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPpPnGA8rkQ)) On October 10, Professor Bruce Pardy, Lawyer Jared Brown and I uploaded the video A Call to Rebellion for Ontario Legal Professionals: (http://bit.ly/2yo4Jpe (https://www.youtube.com/redirect?v=FPpPnGA8rkQ&event=video_description&q=http%3A%2F%2Fbit.ly%2F2yo4Jpe&redir_token=QNq-6WA1xBhF0C3S-DFBp0_i-U98MTUwOTgxMDI3N0AxNTA5NzIzODc3)) in the wake of the Law Society's new requirement for a mandatory "statement of principles" that appears primarily political in nature. We believe that this sets an ominous precedent, and that such demands, if accepted unchallenged by Canadian lawyers, will quickly spread to the other professional colleges and organizations in Canada and beyond. This video discussion is an update on what has happened since. Many articles have been written about these demands: https://doubleaspect.blog/2017/10/12/...

31 - Modern Times - Camille Paglia

Dr. Camille Paglia is a well-known American intellectual and social critic. She has been a professor at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (where this discussion took place) since 1984. She is the author of seven books focusing on literature, visual art, music, and film history, among other topics. The most well-known of these is Sexual Personae (http://amzn.to/2xVGEEV (https://www.youtube.com/redirect?q=http%3A%2F%2Famzn.to%2F2xVGEEV&v=v-hIVnmUdXM&event=video_description&redir_token=xKlJXraWe2rTa6242jzfgCumdzV8MTUwODUxNTM5N0AxNTA4NDI4OTk3)), an expansion of her highly original doctoral thesis at Yale. The newest, Free Women, Free Men: Sex, Gender, Feminism, was published by Pantheon Books in March 2017 (http://amzn.to/2hGycTG (https://www.youtube.com/redirect?q=http%3A%2F%2Famzn.to%2F2hGycTG&v=v-hIVnmUdXM&event=video_description&redir_token=xKlJXraWe2rTa6242jzfgCumdzV8MTUwODUxNTM5N0AxNTA4NDI4OTk3)). Dr. Paglia has been warning about the decline and corruption of the modern humanities for decades, and she is a serious critic of the postmodern ethos that currently dominates much of academia. Although she is a committed equity feminist, she firmly opposes the victim/oppressor narrative that dominates much of modern American and British feminism. In this wide-ranging discussion, we cover (among other topics) the pernicious influence of the French intellectuals of the 1970's on the American academy, the symbolic utility of religious tradition, the tendency toward intellectual conformity and linguistic camouflage among university careerists, the under-utilization of Carl Jung and his student, Erich Neumann, in literary criticism and the study of the humanities, and the demolition of the traditional roles and identity of men and women in the West.

23 - Cain and Abel: The Hostile Brothers

Lecture 5 in my Psychological Significance of the Biblical Stories lecture series The account of Cain and Abel is remarkable for its unique combination of brevity and depth. In a few short sentences, it outlines two diametrically opposed modes of being -- both responses to the emergence of self-consciousness and the knowledge of good and evil detailed in story of Adam and Eve. Cain's mode of being -- resentful, arrogant and murderous -- arises because his sacrifices are rejected by God. This means that his attempts to give up something valuable in the present to ensure prosperity in the future are insufficient. He fails, in consequence, to thrive, as he believes he should, and becomes bitter, resentful and murderous. Abel's mode of being is characterized, by contrast, by proper sacrifice -- by the establishment of balance between present action and future benefit. This ensures his personal and social success, accruing over time. Unfortunately, it also makes him the target of Cain's malevolence. This great short story is relevant personally, on the level of the family, and politically, all with equal force, all simultaneously.

11 - Dr. James W Pennebaker

Dr. James W. Pennebaker is Professor of Psychology at the University of Texas at Austin, and the Executive Director of Project 2021, aimed at rethinking undergrad education at that university. I first encountered Dr. Pennebaker's work when I was working on the SelfAuthoring Suite (www.selfauthoring.com), an online writing program which has helped thousands of college students stay in school and get better grades. He conducted the original work on "expressive writing," starting in the 1980's, showing that people's health and productivity improved when they wrote about traumatic experiences or uncertainty -- particularly if they constructed causal accounts or plans. He has also investigated the psychological significance of patterns of word use (particularly about everyone's favorites, pronouns). We talk about all of this, and much more. Dr. Pennebaker's books include: * "Opening Up by Writing it Down" (http://amzn.to/2mQX09L) * "Expressive Writing: Words that Heal" (http://amzn.to/2m6eIWP) * The Secret Life of Pronouns" (http://amzn.to/2lqfRvu) You can find out more about The SelfAuthoring Suite, which helps people write about the difficulties and uncertainties of the past (Past Authoring), present (Present Authoring) and Future (Future Authoring) at www.selfauthoring.com. NPR did a popular story on the suite: The Writing Assignment that Changes Lives (http://n.pr/1TpZIxd) You can find out more about Dr. Pennebaker's research, learn more about psychology, and improve your knowledge of yourself at these websites: * JW Pennebaker at U Texas Austin (http://bit.ly/2mQW4lY) * JWP's computer program for word analysis (http://www.liwc.net) * JWP's exercises for self-understanding (http://bit.ly/2mDUZ49) * JWP's Language of Truth and Lies and other videos (http://bit.ly/2mE25pl)

A conversation with Samuel Andreyev: A composer, poet, teacher and performer. His music is performed, broadcast, recorded and written about worldwide, and is known for its expressive intensity, spirit of exploration and enormous range of timbres. Resolutely independent, his compositional process is marked by a rigourous perfectionism, with many projects taking years to reach completion. Samuel Andreyev studied composition with Allain Gaussin in Paris, then at the Conservatoire de Paris, where he obtained a masters degree in composition under Frédéric Durieux, and a prix d’analyse under Claude Ledoux. He also studied electroacoustics at IRCAM from 2011-12. His composition Night Division was awarded the grand prix of the Concours Henri Dutilleux in 2012. In the same year, he was awarded a one-year residency at the Casa de Velázquez in Madrid. Frequently sought after as a guest lecturer, Samuel Andreyev teaches privately and in many conservatories and universities across Europe and North America. Samuel Andreyev’s music is performed throughout the world by ensembles such as Esprit Orchestra, Nouvel Ensemble Moderne, les Percussions de Strasbourg, HANATSU miroir and many others. His scores are published by Alphonse Leduc (France), Impronta (Germany), and Resolute (USA). His most recent book, The Relativistic Empire, was released in October 2015 from Bookthug.
