–Jordan Peterson, Maps of Meaning Lecture Series
My brother suggested this series of lectures to me on YouTube, and they are unbelievably interesting. It is one of Jordan Peterson’s psychology classes that he teaches at the University of Toronto. In the selected listening he is breaking down an idea (he usually explains archetypes and ideas that explain our behaviors and various aspects of our ‘life story’) and I am a strong believer in the one he is talking about here.
I am a believer in it because I have felt the difficulty, and seen the reward, in what he is describing. It is something that I feel I have to deal with very frequently_if not daily.
Anyway, very interesting lectures. Click on the link, start at 1:32:20 and listen until 1:35:50. Just over three minutes.
