Jordan Peterson is dangerous to read
Show Notes
Why Jordan Peterson is dangerous. On this fourth installment of my grapplings with Peterson I explore Peterson's rule "Compare yourself to who you were yesterday, not who someone else is today." For the first time I express some serious disagreements with Peterson, though I definitely agree with much of his underlying reasoning for the rule. After giving an overview of his method for expressing the underlying reasoning for this rule, I dive into where we diverge. I'll give you a hint: It has to do with the character Raskolnikov in the book Crime and Punishment. The poem I chose was "Mending Wall" by Robert Frost, as I believe there is much mending to do with Peterson's view here.
