Download ã 12 Rules for Life An Antidote to Chaos 108 characters 12 Rules for Life An Antidote to Chaos Eople tread when they become resentful arrogant and vengeful Dr Peterson journeys broadly discussing discipline freedom adventure and responsibility distilling the world's wisdom into 12 practical and profound rules for life 12 Rules for Life shatters the modern commonplaces of science faith and human nature while transforming and ennobling the mind and spirit of its listene. Too Sweet to be WholesomeJordan Peterson is a global phenomenon He is good in print even better in interviews As a psychoanalyst he has decades of experience and professional credibility I find his Jungian approach far interesting than Freudian or various cognitive methods As a Canadian he is presumed a certain integrity often denied to other English speaking experts As a man he is engaging and fast on his feet with no defensiveness even under intense pressure In 12 Rules for Life he makes a cogent case for the necessity as well as benefit of moral authority Although he is not a religious adherent Peterson believes in the objectivity of moral law he has no time for those relativists who consider moral law as something arbitrarily constructed within human society Many find his arguments compelling I find them disingenuous and dangerousThe disingenuousness of 12 Rules begins in the introduction by Peterson s long time friend and associate Dr Norman Doidge MD Doidge points to the persistence of the Ten Commandments from the Hebrew Scriptures as an example of the ancient effectively eternal and fixed wisdom of biblical moral precepts Unsurprisingly Doidge fails to make mention of the other 412 divinely ordained precepts of the law given in the same scriptures Things like the stoning of heretics the inferiority of women and the necessity for meticulous maintenance of spiritual purity apparently do not carry significant moral weight despite their authoritative divine source And he makes no mention of the fact that the founder of the Christian Religion Paul of Tarsus designated the entire Hebrew law including the Ten Commandments as the very source of evil Doidge is not merely tendentious he is an ideologue who has little understanding of the biblical references he makes or he is a liarPopularity is not a terribly reliable guarantor of either poetry or philosophy By his own account Peterson s Rules started life on an interactive internet site Participants liked his rules as nakedly stated without even being given reasons without explanation of their operation The rules apparently touched some inarticulate need which site participants hadn t previously recognised And they gave rave reviews The book is the result of subseuent justifications of the intuitions he floated on the internet Whatever erudition classical references and stylistic skill Peterson used to develop his arguments for these rules they are hardly the the product of analytical thought Like Doidge s introduction the book is tendentious meant to promote a potentially popular cause not thinking The fact that Peterson is honest about the genesis of the book doesn t change its character But I think it does help to explain why the book appeals to many religious leaders and right wing politicians Peterson appears to provide both groups with philosophical selling and political talking points that promote a conservative social agendaPeterson is a Jungian psychoanalyst apparently by conviction as well as by training Jungian method is inherently dialectical Consciousunconscious egoshadow animaanimus are all necessary components of the human psyche Only by accepting the existence of these competing components and reconciling their insistent demands can a person become integrated that is whole a complete Self Jungians implicitly presume that none of us is naturally whole We need each other sometimes use each other to compensate for our dialectical deficiencies Ultimately however psychic health comes about by taking responsibility for one s own integration by recognising how we perceive the reality of the world we inhabit and how we react to our perceptions These are matters of choice not fate This is a simple but very subtle theory In short the theory has two principles 1 the Unconscious is indistinguishable from reality and 2 the Self is indistinguishable from God Both reality and God exist in our heads as it were They are ideas over which we can exercise control One can sense Plato not to mention Billy Graham turning in their graves at the thought that ideas are subject to human will Evangelicals don t seem to mind this Jungian theological faux pas probably because Peterson uotes the Old Testament story of the Creation and Fall a classic Jungian trope To them it seems but a small step from the symbolism of the God in one s head and one s dreams to the objective Ruler of the world Didn t the great Protestant theologian of the 19th century Friedrich Schleiermacher make the same point that God was a feeling emanating from the human mind Similarly social conservatives like the idea of personal responsibility as part of their ideological portfolios Doesn t this bring together both the economic neo liberalism of Frederick Hayek and the militant individualism of Ayn Rand The fact that personal integration of the Self implies a rejection of ideology of any stripe as an impediment to psychic health doesn t seem to register at all So of course Peterson will be exploited by Evangelicals and Conservatives to further their agendas regardless of the caveats insisted upon by him And they re right to ignore his fey resistance He knows he s given conservations a way to ignore the traditional Christian ethos of love the primary concern with one s neighbour the inherent responsibility to the collective as something distinct from the totality of its members His is a philosophy of consummate selfishness which just fits the bill for the latest coalition of religious and constitutional fundamentalists Christ as pantocratic dictator rather than Jesus as messianic rebelThose who are familiar with the Erhard Seminar Training EST programme of the 1970 s and 80 s and its various successor movements for radical personal improvement will recognise this theme of total personal responsibility EST was an intriguing and highly popular syncretism of Jungian psychology and the existential philosophy of Martin Heidegger Peterson s version doesn t use the pyramid selling techniues that made EST so popular particularly among the highly educated but the combination of the internet cable television and the intellectual vacuum of evangelical and political conservatism has the euivalent functional role EST was a training ground for the political left in the 1970 s 12 Rules promises to be the focal point for the political right for some time to come None of this is to say that Peterson isn t interesting or worthwhile On the contrary he has an intelligent witty and interesting contribution to make in intellectual debate despite the banal insipidness of his Rules Nevertheless just as EST helped create a generation of liberal weirdos in business politics and academia I fear that an euivalent generation of conservative weirdos in in the making There is a distinct Whig theme that runs through the entire book the world is as it is for good reasons and it s not your responsibility to fix it Comforting no doubt to those who feel disenfranchised disrespected and than a bit deplorable But really does anyone believe that some positive thinking is going to make them into a bold psychic
