    Maps. Jordan Peterson wrote a book entitled “Maps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief.”

    Mike, when are you going to write something about Peterson? He is basically a philosopher and his current book is number 1 on Amazon.

    He also destroyed his BBC interviewer in this video:

    My favorite bit 🙂 What kills me is that she probably aced her Oxbridge courses on critical thinking.

      You may find David Thompson’s thread last week on the subject of that interview worth a read.

        Do you comment at that site, WTP?

          Yeah. That’s me.

          From one of the commenters at Thompson’s blog regarding Peterson:

          What motivates the hate aimed at Jordan Peterson from ‘intellectuals’? Basic human resentment
          Once the dozen-plus years of compulsory schooling comes to an end, some young people pursue their success outside of the school framework and do so quite well. People who got poor or mediocre grades in school go on to become successful businessmen and women and accrue wealth. Even more, they accrue influence. They may be intelligent but their intelligence manifests itself better in the business world than in the schoolhouse.
          Meanwhile, the intellectuals who spend years in graduate school go on to do well, put together their theses and their presentations, get their professorships (sometimes at prestigious universities!) and still fail to accrue much wealth. Even worse, outside of their small intellectual fiefdoms, they fail to accrue influence. Save the occasional Peter Singer or Jordan Peterson, few academics acquire influence outside of the academy.

          When you spend so many years growing up in a system that tells you that you will be at the top of the dominance hierarchy and then you’re not, your expectations are violated. This violation of expectations manifests itself as resentment. You followed the rules, you did things as you were supposed to, and some guy who runs a construction company or built an app gets more influence and respect than you.

          Peterson brings an additional level of resentment to the table for these academics and intellectuals who envy his success in their own hierarchies. Not only did he win at their own game with professorships at Harvard and Toronto and more citations than most of his peers get in a lifetime, but he also succeeds in the game of influence outside of the academy. To use his own analogy, he’s the largest lobster in their own circles and a big lobster in society at large.
