2017 Maps of Meaning 9: Patterns of Symbolic Representation (Jordan B. Peterson Video)

Here’s something different that most of you won’t want to view. It’s over two hours of Professor Jordon B. Peterson lecturing to a college class.

I’ve had the video playing in the background for an hour and a half as I write these words. There’s a great deal of common sense from a politically incorrect Canadian professor who has had to deny he is a bigot for expressing common sense ideas. Symbolism, philosophy, psychology, mythology and more are woven into a lecture on how we reach our beliefs.

If you’re interested in what made Adolf Hitler a success, he begins talking about him at around the 1 hour and 40 minutes mark. Which is not to say he admires Hitler.


Peterson records his lectures and uploads them to YouTube. His YouTube channel has amassed more than 200,000 subscribers and his videos have received more than 8 million views as of April 2017.

Peterson has also recently started recording a podcast: The Jordan B Peterson Podcast which has 14 episodes as of April 16, 2017.[12]

Peterson published Maps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief in 1999. The book describes a comprehensive theory for how we construct meaning, represented by the mythical process of the exploratory hero, and also provides a way of interpreting religious and mythical models of reality presented in a way that fits in with modern scientific understanding of how the brain works. It synthesizes ideas drawn from narratives in mythology, religion, literature and philosophy, as well as research from modern neuropsychology.[citation needed]

Peterson’s primary goal was to figure out the reasons why individuals, not simply groups, engage in social conflict, and try to model the path individuals take that results in atrocities like the Holocaust or the Soviet Gulag. Peterson considers himself a pragmatist, and uses science and neuropsychology to examine and learn from the belief systems of the past and vice versa, but his theory is primarily phenomenological. Peterson explores the origins of evil, and also posits that an analysis of the world’s religious ideas might allow us to describe our essential morality and eventually develop a universal system of morality.

Here’s a couple of his Tweets that offer the flavor of his interests.

  1. Does he name the Jew? It would not take me two hours to explain that Lenin and his revolutionary gang were overwhelmingly Jews, more than 70%. Marx was a Jew paid for by bankers – so Marx never named the (((banker))) as the primary source of the evils of capitalism.

    “Queensland police dept recruits 50% women despite vast majority of male applicants: men, wake up.”
    Maybe men should become criminals instead. Perhaps that is the message Australian governments are sending men, if the police won’t have them. Women are much weaker than men so when a woman cop “collars” a man he can break free and run away. If the female cop and the male criminal are face to face with handguns – he will hit her in the chest and she will miss. Because women were not designed by nature for this sort of conflict. Her adrenaline will cause her to miss while his adrenaline will help him. As long as the male criminal does regular target practice as all cops must do. Life is about the opposite of what Hollywood shows to us. The greatest injustice in Australia is that female police are kept away from Muslims at demonstrations and sporting events. Usually, only male police get bashed by Muslims in Australia. The equal pay snowflakes are given soft jobs to do while male police get punched and bashed with iron poles.

    • I didn’t catch any mention of Jews and I listened to the whole thing. At times I was distracted, however. His talk to students would be more about how our beliefs are created by our culture. A red pilled viewer would be further awakened to how the West is being destroyed by Jewish multiculturalism, aka (((cultural Marxism.)))

      women were not designed by nature for this sort of conflict

      It’s the nonsense that infects our culture that Peterson, in his academic way, if fighting against. The feminists would deny the truth of your observation and destroy you for saying it.
