252. This Lesson From The Bible Will Make You Unstoppable | Jordan Peterson at Franciscan University

This episode was recorded on April 4, 2022. I discussed gratitude, faith, and suffering in this conversation at the Franciscan University of Steubenville. How can we be sure that pain is a solid guiding principle as we navigate the world? What is the underlying structure of pain, and what does it point at? We also touched on a myriad of topics around those central themes, such as sin and the symbol of the snake, giving advice, resurrection, the relationship between faith and suffering, evil, the effect we have on others, and sunsets.

251. You Probably Should Have Read The Bible | Jordan Peterson at Franciscan University of Steubenvi...

This episode was recorded on April 4, 2022. In this speech at the Franciscan University of Steubenville, Jordan shared recent thoughts on ethics, scripture, and the problem of perception. He asked the audience to reflect on how we remember great stories (but seem to instantly forget bad ones), why Western culture ended up being a book (instead of—say—a sickle), and whether the West truly is a “phallogocentric" culture. All of this, Jordan says, tied to a broader possibility—perhaps his “most radical claim"—that, as we navigate the value structures we call reality, a lot of so-called “navigational” problems are really veiled ethical ones. #Perception #Bible #Western #Power #Literature #Ethics Learn more about your ad choices.

The right to speak is critically important to allow our civilization not only to thrive but to survive. In part 2 of this compilation, we examine the power of free speech and potential responses to censorship.  After a lecture excerpt on the “initial defeat of the hero,” we transition into podcast clips on hate crime laws, the idea behind 'No Safe Spaces,’ and the events that lead Paul Rossi, a NY private school teacher, to take a stand against seminars on "white dominant culture" being taught as gospel. After that, we travel across the pond to speak with Andrew Doyle about the hate crime laws recently passed in the UK Parliament.  —Links— Watch the full Paul Rossi episode: https://youtu.be/ysQBegyQP8A & Andrew Doyle episode: https://youtu.be/aoH1g5GYhPw —Chapters— [0:00] Pinocchio, Jiminy Cricket, & the Initial Defeat of the Hero [4:36] Paul Rossi: starting to bother you [10:26] There's no such thing as a conversation [15:19] Losing his job [17:30] Aspects of "white dominant culture" [30:52] "Healing resources" [32:27] A kafkaesque series of meetings [38:59] Conscience as a mirror of the divine [40:52] Andrew Doyle: why hate crime laws in Parliament matter [48:52] Western institutions: power-hungry & tyrannical [56:09] Damage without intent [57:48] Prager & Carolla: The Motivation Behind 'No Safe Spaces'  [59:44] Defining far-right vs. far-left #FreeSpeech #WhiteCulture #Conscience #Pinocchio #Parliament Learn more about your ad choices.
