Highly appreciate these lectures, the perspective. After losing my spouse, I lost direction... Mostly meaning. After 4 years of mess and stupidity, treading water wasn't enough. I made rough goals, picked a direction to swim for shore. Your Utube channel has crystalized and given myself a focus these past months. I thank you for turning down the volume of suffering.

Back in late 2016 when all the fuss about Trump began, the algorithm started to show me videos about a canadian professor who spoke about truth, mithology and history, little did I know that these videos would influence my life the way that they did. I hope this video is thrown into the algorithm for another person to enjoy. We are very lucky for having JP alive talking to us.

I found him around that time too, 2015 or 2016, when he started appearing on Joe Rogan's podcast. Joe had interesting psychologists on often, but that first exposure to JP just blew me away. Then I discovered he had all these lectures of myth and Soviet ideology, two things I'm fascinated by. And then had written a book to help people with depression take back control, which I was struggling with at the time. I owe so much emotional and intellectual growth to Dr Peterson now.

Kinda helps with the whole memory recall thing. I can remember in my middle school years having a friend from PR named Freedom. Wasn’t his real name and he barely spoke a lick of English. We nicknamed him Frito as a result because of how he annunciated his name in his broken English dialect and accent. However, his favorite snack was chocolate peanuts. For some reason I had a sense of awe and surrealism how he was so enthralled with the excess and accessibility to his favorite treat. Which, made me aware for a moment that he probably didn’t have it as good as I did before we met.

I love writing. It makes my ideas real. I sit in front of my computer. dial up Google Docs and all of a sudden I'm understanding myself better 29 pages in writing a long, long letter to someone I'll probably never meet. Writing is a conversation--with myself, sure, but with someone of whom I have a model in my head. Everything I've ever written, including papers and articles and two screenplays, were addressed to an imaginary reader. It's communication.

@Somethi There's a very big difference between using some kind of technology to "write" and not doing so. Have you seen all those ads for "grammarly" ? Show me anyone who actually needs something like that to write anything at all (in their native language no less!) and I'll show you an idiot. Similarly, actually writing with a pen/pencil/paper is an organic process and therefore can provide insights while working you won't experience otherwise. Not to mention, you won't ruin your eyes by staring at a screen all day.

The best professor I had in college gave me a C on my first written assignment in his class. I am actually pretty good with words, and pretty well-read, and I was accustomed to getting high marks on everything in all my classes and here I was with a C in front of me? Well, my writing was not concise, it didn't get to the point, it had unnecessary words. It was a linguistics course, not a writing course, but Wick Miller taught me how to write. And it was the best thing I learned out of all my classes.

About halfway through a man mentions a smoking addiction and how he realised he used it as an excuse to not do certain things. That was definitely a big part of it for me. It's sad but especially after I had my child and was done breastfeeding I started again because I was around it and that made it easier to pick it back up..but many family members were only willing to watch my child when I was smoking. So I kept smoking because "why not" (and I was depressed and stressed). Until I started to realise I didn't want a smokers cough and I didn't want to spend the money...then I realized I could just say I'm smoking but choose to breathe and take a moment instead. One family member did thankfully understand and was kind to knowingly watch my child for a bit while I just had a break (without smoking). Back to being honest..I discovered who I wanted around me and my child anyway vs who I didn't. The people that were refusing to watch my kid if I wasn't smoking...all of them ended up being people that I now cut out of my life for many reasons. Just being honest about that one thing was a big hint.

I've been a long-time follower of Dr. Peterson, but what really struck me about this video is Dr. Peterson's advocacy for the humanities. I am a student of History, and I have felt over the past several years this sense that my study, along with the rest of the sister disciplines in the humanities, have been denigrated constantly, accused of being an area of knowledge that no longer provides any sort of economic or moral value. The prevailing rhetoric now is that young people either have to get a STEM degree, or go into Trade School; there is nothing else in between that is a worthwhile effort. It seems as if there has been a moral darkening over the population, a growing fixation with what is practical and not with what is good. Yet we've seen with the handling of the pandemic that there is a need for a humanitarian education, because we are increasingly faced with the crises of unethical science and governmental policies. I hope that soon, Dr. Peterson will not have to dissuade people from studying the humanities, and that our western civilization once again rediscovers the importance of the humanities. After all, the study of the humanities was one of the only things that pulled Europe out of the Dark Ages and into the Renaissance and Age of Reason.

Why good writing will always triumph over intersectionality: A decent story will almost always involve multiple characters, and for them to be good characters they have to be written as individuals with their own dreams, motivations, and limitations. This is quite anti-thetical to what progressives in general want: That everyone think exactly the same, have the same morals and desires. If you can swap the names of any number of characters and the story remains the same, odds are you've failed to write anything interesting; and that none of the characters written actually grows past a stereotype. If you think about it, a lot of stories and movies in the past do have 'woke' themes to them, but none of it mattered because the characters that exist are fully fleshed out; they are individuals. More modern media where the wokeness takes center stage, the characters aren't fleshed out: They become the ideology, a hollow shell that spits out talking points and is never challenged or put to the test; but rather everything they encounter simply re-affirms their position. Their dreams aren't challenged, their resolve isn't challenged, there is no self-reflection or even a hint of possibility that they could be wrong; having a personal internal obstacle is one of the most critical things for a character to develop, but woke characters are given speedbumps to run over: Not life altering dilemmas.

your comment made me emotional for some reason. its so spot on. most likeable characters are actually never politically correct. this might seem like a weird tangent but: im kinda sad they didnt renew 'happy' for another season. i mean it's about an alcoholic daddy with ptsd who has an imaginary friend and a daughter he's trying to save from a pedophile ring. he also slays a lot of baddies which would technically mean he's a serial killer. but he's real, his emotions are real and his heart is in the right place. most modern shows dont seem to produce any truly likeable or memorable characters. feels more like they are pushing some kind of agenda to make people feel morally superior (or inferior). i dunno i am probably getting carried away here. much love anyway.

@RIghteous Shift I heard a good argument before that Dune had an effectively conservative world view at it's core, despite the fact it obviously depicted hallucinogenic drug use from first hand experience in the 60s. I don't remember the details of the argument but it seemed compelling at the time. I think was from The Distributist, who is Catholic, so that's a particular bias. I disagree with many of his thoughts, but I do seem to recall his arguments about Dune, assuming it was him, seemed fairly convincing. I think it's important to notice that conservative and liberal are not directly antonyms. These days conservatives seem to be liberals in that they are trying to conserve liberal values, and "progressives" are often trying to regress us to nonsense that previous progressives freed us from. Many folks labeled "conservatives" fight for freedoms and and many "liberals" are trying to enforce a new ridged authoritarian religion. There's many ways folks can break down what's different in the factions and mind sets. One is if humans are basically good and corrupted by culture, or if they are basically bad and need to be civilized (while admitting that culture can also become corrupt). The fact that one can question boundaries and ideas doesn't mean there aren't any they may wish to conserve. While I don't expect many lawyers to write compelling fantasy, and on big 5 personality they are low in openness but high in conscientiousness which correlatedo with conservative (even if they are fighting dirty for gun control or abortion), doesn't mean that the folks who push the boundaries of ideas are not conservative in many many ways. Everything is by degrees. For an example Christopher Hitchens pointed to a passage from the novel "A Man For All Seasons" in his speech about Free Speech. In it sir Thomas Moore is arguing with a vicious witch hunter, and he asks him: "You would break the law to punish the devil, wouldn't you?" And the guy replies: "Break it? I'd cut down every law in England if I could capture him." And Moore replies: "Yes you would wouldn't you. But when you finally corner the devil and the devil turns around to meet you, where would you flee for protection? All the laws of England having been cut down?" Note that that's basically a conservative argument. In a famous play. Being used as a good example by a "liberal." In practice it seems to me there's just an establishment tyranny that requires artists to fall I line with their agenda to be promoted and not suppressed. Apparently war and racism and sexual abuse and so on are all perfectly fine so long as it's "left" wing parties and peoples that do it.

Thank you Dr Peterson for reminding me about the importance words and their use in writing for self expression and discovery. It's an adventure. Writing for healing and to reflect and refocus and wonderful tool. I have Dyslexia so the written word has been something fear a little, I remember my teacher's red pen of correction. I'm now growing to understand it's worth and editing and correction is for clarity. Words and writing are not just for the mundane tasks of life they are like portholes into ourselves and others and to help us explore the inner realms of ourselves and not just communicate with others. Our Lord Jesus said from the heart the mouth speaks and I would add the pen, stylus and fingers too. It is also written that life and death are in our tongues. I have often thanked our Maker for blessings us with the safety valve of release of tension we all experience as tears and to laughter as we negotiate through life. I now thanks Him for words and language the ability to think and to write. . Our Lord Jesus is the person who literally owns everything but I can bless Him and those He has placed in my life with words put together in sentences in my heart spoken with my mouth or written on a page and I can also received that sort of soul food as well. Our words and what we believe we live in those villages and cities. The things we believe, say, listen and hear and write can mould us and our relationships. They are much important because they are our own diamonds that reflects us and as I read and hear Father God's marvellous insightful words from The Holy Bible they have changed me to be like Jesus my Lord.

Dr. Peterson, This was a great compilation that captures your findings on the power of writing, sorting out your past, and transcending it into a positive future. I particularly enjoyed Tim Ferriss’s point on how Viktor Frankl’s motivation to make it out of the concentration camps was to finish his book. I can’t divorce the connection between Frankl’s desire to finish that book (or his life’s work) and his aspiration and drive to return to and “finish” the life of righteous intent he had chosen for himself. He ultimately transcends the evil bestowed upon him and being the father of logotherapy and the author of Man’s Search for Meaning, I’d say he positively impacted not only his own circumstances but those of thousands of others taboot. He’s a perfect example of what you’re trying to convey here. But thank you always for your daily reminders of self-reliance and strategies for overcoming life’s inevitable suffering. You are changing so many lives for the good, just like Frankl.

I had one art history professor at university, grade my essay based on her bias and had the nerve to write that my view was reaching. Wow! Self-authoring tool. Enrolling this week.

Thank you for posting this Doctor Perterson. I'm an author, writing my fantasy novel 'The Swords Of Damocles" It's helped keep me afloat during these tough times and has provided a great outlet for my emotions. Without it I would probably be dead right now.

@Rayhan khan Oviee the book is about an adventuring party named that. Yes it's named after the story Cicero wrote.

As an engineering student who doesn’t take philosophy as a degree very seriously (at least in the state of our universities today) I think I’d be willing to change my degree if I had the opportunity to take a class or two from this man,,, the world needs a few more people with this level of intelligence and wisdom

I literally talked to my sons about NOT going to university because of the educational rot, the programming to become an “activist” or being molded into a mouth piece for political bias through indoctrination The both joined the Military and have great careers ahead of them. Hearing Dr Peterson talk about the decay of our higher educational system, confirms my choice of conversation with them

I've always been wondering if when it comes to writing, is it good enough to write on a computer or does it have to be paper, because there's something about paper that's different but also takes more time and effort. So I'm wondering if writing on a computer has the same effect?

@Hossein Akbari I would suggest reading 12 rules for life before reading maps of meaning. 12 rules for life goes into detail on some these ideas in maps of meaning but in a more understandable/graspable way. I started maps of meaning and as someone who didn’t really pay attention in high school and just got high a lot. It was very hard for me to understand but 12 rules of life was almost like an introduction of what maps of meaning was trying to convey.

I broke up with someone yesterday, and I can assure you being able to write properly and communicate effectively saved us all a lot of drama. Them saying I was a good communicator I felt was a testament to that. I have JP to thank truly, he taught me the importance of being articulate, getting your point across, and the importance of writing in the practise of that.

Still waiting for Jordan to invite fellow KZbinr Abbie Emmons on his channel for a discussion on this. Because she likes to delve into the psychology of storytelling, too, and the advice she’s giving on the basis of this is astonishingly sound, given how few books of her own she has published so far.

I've had dreams about writing and heard lyrics. I've been shown a writing desk and this is what I heard. Now there you go again, you say you want your freedom Well, who am I to keep you down? It's only right that you should play the way you feel it But listen carefully to the sound of your loneliness Like a heartbeat, drives you mad In the stillness of remembering what you had And what you lost Of what you had And what you lost Now here I go again, I see the crystal vision I keep my visions to myself It's only me who wants to wrap around your dreams and Have you any dreams you'd like to sell? Dreams of loneliness... FM- Dreams. Ive take up the pen and quit my addictions.

In a weird way I was lucky enough to learn to write after 8 years of age, something most of my peers were able to already do quite proficiently, but the handicap caused me to immerse myself in the practice and by age 10 I was writing official letters for my parents. Now I love it, I just write for the sake of it sometimes.
