  Who in Hades' name is Jordan Peterson, and why in Hades' name should I care?  

If it was not for Wikipedia, I would never have know . . . not that I care much more than that.

Quite possibly less well known in the US than in the Commonwealth.

EDIT OK it's possible I've seen his name before although only here. It doesn't seem he's an authority on autism.

Anyway I see he calls himself a "Classical Liberal". That's always a red flag for me. I wouldn't waste my time on whatever sort of narcissistic nonsense he wants to "share" with humanity.

He's actually quite intelligent. He was a Harvard professor. That's a quite a unfairly dismissive attitude. I like the guy, for his work on Mythology, but whatever... :roll:

Peterson gained notoriety a few years ago opposing the Canadian bill that made it a crime to misgender trans people. I did agree with him on that issue. Aside from that, I can't say I know much about his other views.

Labeled "Canada's Most Infamous Intellectual". He's only been known since he entered the political fray 5 or so years ago, and became a lightning rod of media attention and controversy. Until that point, he was an obscure professor of ancient mythology and psychology.

To me, he is still an obscure professor of ancient mythology and psychology.

Meh . . . whatever . . .

Well, it wouldn't be the first time for him, and is it really a grift if people really are constantly trying to censor and silence you, and ascribe views to you that you don't endorse? I'm thinking of that instant classic BBC interview with him where the interviewer spent the whole time asking him "have you stopped beating your wife yet?" style questions instead of just asking him what his views actually were; it was illuminating, but not in the way they wanted.

I'm not sure that would be an accurate description of Peterson's notability. One needs to be visible to a certain level in order for that grift to work. One needs to be visible enough and with enough platforms before they can portray criticism and disagreement as 'being cancelled'.

It might even be a legitimate concept when it comes to regular people (for as often as it might actually occur, which is debatable) but when it's a world famous "intellectual" they just come off as a whiny con artist looking for more attention.

Ive had heard his name. But thats about it. Dont know much about him. And even thats only because I go to Utube and see how his fellow Utubers talk about him- either defending him, or attacking him.

If a person had time to digest his books, or his Utube presentations, then a person could decide if ... they were one of the folks who ...passionately defend him, or one of the folks who passionately attack him. But I just havent had the time to do that. :lol:

I'm sure in his mind he has world wide fame.

Ah Yes, Jordan Peterson, Best Selling
Author For His Books in Several Countries;

Surely Not Only Locally Know; and Yes With
Over 4 Million Followers With close to a Million
Listening to His Resignation Speech on His YouTube

Channel With Almost All Of the Comments Practically
Worshipping Him as A Guru of A New Religion as That

Has Been 'Normally' The Case Now With His Target Audience
of Disenfranchised, Mostly White Males Leaning Conservative

As His Dismissal of Marginalized Folks Making So-Called "Leftists"
The Common Enemies Serves to Bond And Bind Folks in the Story He

Provides For Directions for Males Who Have Lost Their Direction in Life

With A Common
Story it Seems
to Bond and
Bind Over Where
Peterson Fills the Niche
For Them; And They Do in
Effect Worship Him Like A High
Priest For A New Religion In some
Cases Their Version of a 'Jesus' on Earth;

Sort of Like The Trump Rising BacK in 2016 too,
For Disenfranchised Other Folks; Many Members
of Evangelistic Churches, Where Trump Became Part

of Their
Existing
Religion that
Trump Surely
Took Advantage
of For His Own Selfish Whims...

Well, for me at Least, i Dismiss No Human
Has Having No Potential to Teach me Something
New or to Affirm What i Already Intuit to Be True...

Although, i Don't Agree With Much of Peterson's Politics
And Opinions on the Marginalized in Society, He Has Co-Authored
Over 100 Research Papers That Have Been Cited Over 15,000 Times
Last Documented in 2020 As Note, i Took the Effort to Actually Read

His Bio on Wiki, As it was Short and took About 30 Seconds For me to Consume it;

For Anyone Who Went to the Trouble to Actually Research What He's Done, It's Obvious

That He Has

More Than
Local Recognition
As A Full Tenured
Professor in Toronto
Resigning Now For Emeritus Professor Status...

Anyway, His Research on Personality And Creativity
Is Interesting And Some of His Research Affirms What
i've Already Intuited About the Relationship of Personality and Creativity...

i Find His Opinions on Mythology as Interesting too; Yet Like Poetry, His Interpretations
Are Surely Not the One 'Gospel Truth' of What the Myths May Actually Be Originally Intended to mean;

If They Were

Actually Intended
To Mean Anything

Specific At All More
Than A Flow of Creativity...

Peterson Has Very High Verbal
Intelligence, And Is Also A Big Systemizer,
Likely on a Broader Autism Phenotype This

Way; He's Said Some Really Face Palm Sounding
Opinions to me Like His Claim that Self-Esteem
And Emotional Intelligence Doesn't Exist as It is

Difficult to Empirically Measure it in Research
And Correlate it With Personality Traits; Yet Anyway,

for me at least, i've Learned things from Cats and Dogs
And Folks With IQ's Around 70 That NO Person with an
IQ of 160 or So Could Teach me For Sure; And Even a Leaf

On A Tree That
Holds the Pattern
or A Whole Tree on
the Surface in Clear View

Pretty Much Tells me the
Molecules in My Body Originate
From Stars As Above So Below
Within, Inside, Outside And All Around

As Real God As Nature Goes in Flow for me...

Of Course, i Rate 100 Percent Open Minded, and
100 Percent Extroverted on Jordan's Highly Lauded
O.C.E.A.N. Big Five Personality Traits Test, Very Much Linked

With Creativity

And Free
Associations

That Folks Open to New Folks
And New Experiences More Often
Benefit From; Of course, i didn't
Need Peterson to tell me this Yet
He Affirmed What i Already Intuited Through
His Research that Was kinda Cool; From What i Intuit,
Sadly He Seems Deficient in Self-Esteem And Emotional Intelligence,

And Suffering From
Mental Illness as He

Has As a Real Tortured
Soul; That's No Surprise to me...

Anyway, You Don't Get to Be an
Assistant Professor At Harvard U. And
A Full Tenured Professor At Toronto U.

By Falling Off Turnip Trucks; the Dude
Has Considerable Knowledge in the Fields
That He Has Actually Researched And His

Ability to Rise Out of That Job to Influence
Over 4 Million Folks on YouTube And Many

More Around the World Is a Considerable
Achievement in Life That Surely NO ONE
HAS COME CLOSE TO TOUCHING ON THIS WEBSITE...

He's Extremely Eccentric With Lots of Flaws; yet Never
the less, He's Worshipped by About 4 Million Folks or So

And has Gotten Really Rich off his Efforts, Both True and False...

Yet as far As i Can And Will
'See', i Don't Think It's worth

An Early Demise For His
Life and So Much

More Pain
And Suffering;

The Dude is Not
Looking Well at all
in His Last Video on YT...

A Long 'Reset Trip' to the 'Virgin
Islands' Might not Be a Bad Idea...

Yet He's in So Deep, There Doesn't
Appear to Be any escape for Him Now...

i Feel Bad for His Overall Humanity, indeed,
Yet it's True Nothing He did is Gonna Change
The Help Canada/Toronto Gives the Marginalized at all...

Might Be Attractive to Live There, if Not For the Damned Freezing Long Winters to me...

Nothing imaginary about it, he's quite well known, though people often have funny ideas of what his views actually are. That actually often works to his advantage, people hear all these crazy things about him, and then go see what he really said and discover that his positions are quite anodyne and sensible self help type stuff, and realize that many of his critics are deranged, dishonest, or both.
