Jordan Peterson is a Canadian clinical psychologist at the University of Toronto. He received widespread attention in the late 2010s as the self-proclaimed “professor against mandated political correctness.” An early book, Maps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief, establishes a common landscape
between mythos and biology, citing Jung, Campbell, Neumann, Hillman, Nietzsche, Solzhenitsyn, and Dostoevsky. His highly popular online presentations and the book 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos have had major influence with young males. We will discuss Peterson’s positions and controversy in the light of his popularizing of Jung’s work.
