Jordan Peterson responds in full to the Channel 4 interview and its aftermath. He also elaborates on what we think are the five strongest points of his philosophy on “how to be in the world”, namely:
1- The centrality of the archetypical hero’s myth
2- The central role of the Logos during the hero’s narrative
3- Making the right sacrifices when bargaining with the future
4- Orienting yourself towards the highest possible good you can conceive
5- Minimise your persona, cultivate your essence, and live in its closest possible proximity
Enjoy! We sure did.
For the Dutch among you, we wrote down an elaborate summary of those five points, with Peterson’s relevant lectures embedded in the text.
For the none-Dutch, Google translate might take you a long way!
