In this lecture, 12th in the 2017 series, I discuss Heidegger's phenomenological philosophy of Being, interpreted through the eyes of the psychotherapists Ludwig Binswanger and Medard Boss.

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (Existentialism)

--From: 2014 Personality Lecture 13: Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (Existentialism)-- Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, perhaps the greatest Russian author of the twentieth century, was an Orthodox Christian existentialist, a direct descendant of Dostoevsky's thinking, and a man who took a mighty axe to the terrible tangled roots of communist totalitarianism. He associated inauthentic being on the part of the individual, within society, with the direct degeneration of that society into tyranny and malevolence. -- For Advertising Inquiries, visit https://www.advertisecast.com/TheJordanBPetersonPodcast Learn more about your ad choices.

Foreword to The Gulag Archipelago: 50th Anniversary

I had the great privilege of writing the foreword to the 50th-anniversary version of the abridged version of one of the most important books of the 20th century, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's The Gulag Archipelago, a devastating account of the absolute horror wreaked upon the people of the Soviet Empire by the acolytes of the doctrine of Karl Marx.

Maps of Meaning 12: Final - The Divinity of the Individual

In this, the final Maps of Meaning lecture for 2017, Dr. Peterson reviews the year and its offerings: What is a belief system? Why are people so inclined to engage in conflict to protect their belief systems? It's partly because our belief systems are not only systems of belief, but structures that serve to render everyone who participates in that belief and its dramatization and acting out in the world predictable, trustworthy and cooperative (even when competing). Is there a hierarchy of rank or value among belief systems, or are they merely arbitrary? What is the relationship between descriptions of the objective world and moral guidelines? How do you determine how to conduct yourself in the world? What should you do (and is that question even genuine -- or answerable?) What inbuilt structures do you bring into the world, as a consequence of biological evolution, that help you orient yourself in life, in the face of its overwhelming complexity? What is the relationship between the games that children learn to play when becoming socialized and the cultural structures that guide us in broader society? How is all this related to the underlying symbolic structures (religious structures) that sit at the base of our societies and belief structures? Learn more about your ad choices.

Maps of Meaning 11: The Flood and the Tower

In this lecture, Dr. Peterson continues his discussion of the archaic stories at the beginning of Genesis, including Cain and Abel, and the flood story of Noah (the return of chaos), and the story of the Tower of Babel (which he reads as a very old warning about the danger of erecting something akin to a totalitarian/utopian secular state -- that is pathological order).

Maps of Meaning 09: Patterns of Symbolic Representation

In this lecture, Dr. Peterson discusses the manner in which the fundamental symbolic archetypes (particularly those dealing with the Wise King and Tyrant) are hijacked for the purposes of propaganda. Ideologies are parasites. Their hosts are archetypes.

Maps of Meaning 08: Neuropsychology of Symbolic Representation

In this lecture, Dr. Peterson discusses the relationship between the basic categories of imagistic/symbolic representation and brain function, noting that the very hemispheres of the brain are adapted, right/left to the environmental or experiential permanence of chaos/order or unexplored/explored territory, with consciousness serving the Logos role of communicative explorer (a function related in one of its deepest manifestations to the function of the hypothalamically grounded dopaminergic systems). - Thanks to our sponsors: https://helixsleep.com/jordan - Listen to The Mikhaila Peterson Podcast! https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-mikhaila-peterson-podcast/id1514043751 Learn more about your ad choices.

Maps of Meaning 07: Images of Story & Metastory

In this lecture, Dr. Peterson discusses how the basic or archetypal categories we use to frame the world are represented in image, where they existed long before their nature could be articulated. These categories include the individual (hero/adversary), culture (wise king/tyrant), and nature (destruction/creation). The heroic individual (the knower) is typically masculine, as is culture (the known), while the unknown is feminine. These categories can be conceptualized, as well, as explorer, explored territory, and unexplored territory. The most abstract category is the dragon of chaos, the monster who guards what is most valuable. It is from this most primordial of categories that the other three emerge. Our existence as prey and predator is reflected in the ambivalent representation of the absolute unknown.   Thanks to our sponsors: https://www.nhtsa.gov/ https://allform.com/lp/jordan/podcasts https://helixsleep.com/jordan   Listen to The Mikhaila Peterson Podcast! https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-mikhaila-peterson-podcast/id1514043751 Learn more about your ad choices.

Maps of Meaning 06: Story and Metastory (Part 2)

In this lecture, Professor Peterson discusses uncertainty or anomaly. We frame the world -- or the world reveals itself to us -- as a story, with a starting point, a destination, and the behavioral means to move from one to the other. The destination is valued more highly than the starting point, and constitutes the point of the story -- the aim of the individual. Reality manifests itself within that story as what is relevant for forward movement, what gets in the way, and what is irrelevant and can be safely ignored. The largest category, by far, is the latter. Unfortunately, sometimes what has been happily classified as irrelevant rears up and gets in the way. That's a manifestation of chaos. Chaos can undermine the story, or break the frame. The degree of undermining or breakage is proportional to the time and space over which the story in question extends its operations.
