12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to ChaosMoking you have to really want to give up to truly commit I got to a oint this year where I really wanted to make a change and this book offers a highly informed helping hand to set you on the right athPrior to this I d read The Chimp Paradox which I d also recommend for those who are trying to sort themselves out I will admit this right off the bat I knew nothing of Jordan Peterson or any of his ideology before reading this book I must have existed in a vacuum as I merely icked this book up as it was given as an RecommendsCurious about the title I urchased on impulseI am very glad I didI am not Jordan Peterson s supposed target audience I used supposed because I don t think he actually claims to have oneI am a liberal Asian left leaning moderate with a background in Zees Story philosophy theology and film studies I support the women s right movement eualay and I find the Republican arty of today rather distasteful for the anti science movement they espouseThat being said this book spoke to me It is not an easy read I had to re read chapters slowly to fully condense my thoughts I agree with the critical review that stated you have to be intellectually euipped to really get the most out of this I had to utilize my background in hilosophy and religion to go beyond the surface of what the author was trying to say This is not a book you can listen to at 2x speed on Audible and hope to retain anything imo You need to digest thisThat being saidPeterson s deft weaving of theology mythology and just overall cogent arguments and viewpoints made me really respect and open up my mind to things I never fully thought about I find it laughable that a Harvard rofessorpsychologist has been embraced by the alt right when even a moderately close reading of this text repudiates all that they stand forPeterson is direct He has opinions I don t always agree with them But he is genuinely expressing himself and the belief that we should all try to be better We should all try to be compassionate and most of all we all should try to understand our humanity a little each and every thereThere s no division in this book there s just deep anguish at the current state of humanity and its capacity for evil There s some exasperation at the way things are currently constructed in society that is in many ways lost And most of all there s compassion and a belief that if we all got together in a room and truly talked the world would be a better laceI would shy away from the noise around Peterson in the headlines on Youtube and in how the idealogues use him or even his own ersonal media narrative to justify their twisted beliefs Don t let the fact that the Alt Right has co opted this man to make him a mascot Just read the book independently and make your own judgments You ll be glad you did I first heard about Peterson when he was debating on bill C 16 Not long after I discovered he had a YouTube channel full of lectures and talks At that oint of my life I was truely bitter A 23 year old man contemplating life At the time I was in a relationship for 4 years I seemed happy but was in deep frustration and depression My grandmother which raised me since I was born was diagnosed with cancer the worst kind of it An incurable one I had a decent aying job it An incurable one I had a decent aying job above the average but still something was missing I had become nihilistic I accepted the absence of a higher meaning and truely believed at that oint that life had little meaning I was etrified of the thought of having a child All of the aforementioned degraded my relashipnship with my arents and little sister to minimalistic contactI decided uite impulsively to buy this bookI just finished reading it actually a few minutes ago This book has an unmeasurable significance to me It rekindled my interest in living made me aware of my own faults and virtues My nihilism has come to a halt and I could roudly say that I m on my way to finding my urpose in life whatever it Might Be I Uite be I uite Jordan Peterson I think he has interesting things to say I think he s unfairly criticised often for things he hasn t said I was curious what he had to say here so I went as far as aying money to find out which was a mistakeI think he should roll back on criticising other Heute Ziehst Du Aus: Roman people s writing rule 6 get your own house in order I uickly got bogged down when rather than illustrate and explain hisoint he rambled off on some exegesis of the first chapters of Genesis You can t draw timeless truths from books that are neither timeless nor true and I wish he would get over this thing he has for holy books When he sticks to evolutionary biology he starts to say interesting and useful things I enjoyed reading another assage about his hometown I dipped into but trawling through biblical assages waiting for him to make a Kapriolen Des Schicksals[Roman] point is extr I couldn t finish this I got as far as Rule 11 and thought to myself why waste time I m some sort of media hermit obviously and hadn t heard of the author until a friend waxed lyrical about how he regularly beat interviewers and opponents The style of writing may appeal to some but to me it was like syrup As for the content it was basic onsychology Lobster behaviour is interesting to illuminate a tiny amount of human behaviour from a taken for granted evolutionary The Magnanimous Heart point of view but in terms of offering an insight into humansyches a very tiny insight would be the goal of humble thinkers it fails to leave the ground Among all the cloyin. Readful aths do 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 Over Mintmarks and Hot Repunched Mintmarks practical androfound rules for life 12 Rules for Lifeshatters the modern commonplaces of science faith and human nature while transforming and ennobling the mind and spirit of its reader. .



I tried This book had so MANY EXCELLENT REVIEWSI JUST DON T excellent reviewsI just don t was following nicely about lobsters and osture It made senseI ignored the tone which was borderline yellingI ignored the sweeping generalizationsI ignored the biblical assages that started to overtake every aragraph in a uasi word salad way I ve studied the Bible since I could read I know when something is offI can only compare this book to a very long sermon where I m trying to follow along and derive some wisdom As the hours wear on everyone is shaking their heads in agreement and I just want to go homeAll I could hear were illogical statements that left zero room for elasticity and nuance I am a human being We all are The author seems to set that "Aside And Preach Onand Onand OnI Felt "and reach onand onand onI felt confused and finally could take no I got up and left the church that this book Alamo Story: From Early History to Current Conflicts pretends not to beI could not have disliked this self help book Never again I like Jordan Peterson a lot I vearticularly enjoyed his explanations and verbal jousting with some of his interviewers so I was looking forward to reading this book to understand about his opinionsI enjoyed the anecdotes and ersonal stories which mostly come in the second half of the book Unfortunately I found the first half of the book hard going and it seems that most of his foundational ideas are taken from Heidegger s concept of Being which Peterson does not try to justify or explain he just takes it for granted even though apparently Heidegger struggled to explain it age xxxiPeterson gives case after case where we should take responsibility tell the truth repair what s broken obey rules and standards and have values and moral obligations yet without once explaining how any of these things can exist given his evolutionary materialistic view of lifeIn Isabel de Solis, Soraya: Un Cuento de Amor En La Alhambra particular he doesn t see If you have not noticed there is aroblem in our society True there are many Out of the Box problems but one isarticularly The First Secret of Edwin Hoff pressing This is nihilism the absence of meaning in the sense of both ultimate goals andresent values Nihilism stands behind much of the urposelessness joylessness and moral chaos of our society It has been articularly devastating to young males in North America the audience for whom Jordan Peterson s writing and videos appear to be created and by whom they are most eagerly received Peterson offers meaning order amidst the chaos of our society he roffers urpose a way forward towards fulfillment he even offers happiness the reward that comes at the end of the intentional País íntim pursuit of meaningful livingLet s be clear what he is offering is a gospel good news for the lost and oppressed He is saying that hope joy andurpose can be found But the gospel he offers turns out to be no gospel at all it is a false gospel that leaves an even bigger hole than the one it was intended to fill What is his answer Take responsibility for being take control of your Under Lock and Key present and choose to move forward in the future Do not blame others for your circumstances or depend on another for rescue but choose to walk the fine line between the chaotic unknown and the orderly known world byressing forth to craft your own meaningThis he claims is what the individual soul longs for and is how we can lead to A Collective Flourishing Over collective flourishing over the atrocities of the 20th century eg xxxv The 12 rules he outlines all unpack this charge take responsibility for your being from different angles Instead of summarizing his rules I think it will be rofitable to consider his agenda as a whole and why his gospel is no gospel at allIf you have studied hilosophy you will uickly notice that Peterson is heavily influenced by the existentialist tradition mediated through Heidegger finding himself very close to the Christian Lignin Biodegradation: Microbiology, Chemistry, and Potential Applications: Volume II philosophers Paul Tillich and Rudolf Bultmann In Peterson s brand of existentialism the traditional uestions ofhilosophy are collapsed into ethics into the uestion of how should and do we live Epistemology the uestions of truth and how we know it and metaphysics the uestion of standards for truth and the reality of experience are collapsed into the central imperative of existentialism take responsibility for Being Being capitalized by Peterson following the tradition of Heidegger refers to the totality of human experience both individual my experience and corporate our experience xxxi How Peterson thinks taking responsibility for Being should be done is unpacked through the 12 rules explained in the book The definition employed early in the book is helpful We must each adopt as much responsibility as Something Wicked possible for individual life society and the world xxxiiiIn the tradition of the old liberal theologians namely Adolf Harnack and the existentialist Rudolf Bultmann Petersonresents his Velvet Ropes (Club Undercover philosophy of life in Christians terms redefining doctrines of depravity atonement original sin and faith in terms of existentialism eg 55 59 189 90 226 This brings us to the firstroblem of the book Many Christians I have talked to see Peterson s concern for Scripture and its centrality for western society as a refreshing breeze in modern thought But It becomes clear early on eg 43 359 that Peterson s interest in Scripture is not that of a Christian nor of a sort that is compatible with Christianity Instead Scripture is a deposit of ancient wisdom insights spewed forth from the depths of Being itself think of Being in the corporate sense above eg 104The wisdom Peterson finds in the Bible is. #1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER#1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLERWhat does everyone in the modern world need to know Renowned sychologist Jordan B Peterson's answer to this most difficult of uestions uniuely combines the hard won truths of ancient tradition with the stunning revelations of cutting edge scientific researchHumorous surprising and informative Dr Peterson tells us why skateboarding boys and Conveniently his own existentialist Jungian as in the sychological system of Carl Jung hilosophy eg Rule 2 It is not only that he rejects the inspiration and authority of Scripture but he rejects its ability to communicate clearly Instead the Scriptures are demythologized to discover the moral teaching that is being communicated by its myths xxvii 34 35 This brings us to the second major issueChristians should be concerned with Peterson s handling of Christian doctrine and Scripture let alone his false Gospel Yet not even the non Christian will find a lausible gospel here Instead those who follow Peterson s rules are bound to find themselves in deeper despair than that which drove them to Peterson in the first laceThroughout the book he takes the stance of an old man dispensing wisdom a scholarly authority dispensing his knowledge Yet unlike the old erson speaking from life long experience or the authority speaking hard earned truth Peterson s book does not escape the category of opinion That is he never offers a credible reason why we should believe the hilosophy he offersThe nihilism to which this book responds emerged from a vacuum of truth and meaning with god dead as 20th century thought claimed no objective standard was left for truth and meaning It was uickly discovered that humanity was insufficient to the task of formulating their own meaning and formulating your own truth is a contradiction in terms Instead of returning the reader to an objective foundation Peterson suggests that taking responsibility for being will A'dan Z'ye Yaşar Kemal produce its own meaning 199 201 283Theroblem of course is that meaning is not something that can emerge of its own accord Peterson suggests that meaning will emerge as you take responsibility for being yet this hardly seems the natural order of things We are motivated to do something because we see it to be meaningful We set goals and achieve them when we are assured they have meaning we do not find meaning by setting goals Without transcendence without a God who orders reality authoritatively sets out good and bad right and wrong there can be no meaning Meaning is intrinsically tied with morality Nacht pursuing what is good and true and eschatologyursuing the roper end Without a urposeful The Da Vinci Cod: A Fishy Parody plan for history a distinct direction and a standard by which to evaluaterogress in that direction their can be no meaningBy leaving meaning and truth 157 159 230 in the hands of the individual Peterson never manages to offer a reasonable or satisfactory answer to the The Collaborative Habit: Life Lessons for Working Together problem he is attempting to solve If truth is the story you tell with your life 230 what foundation is there for the hundreds of moral evaluations he makes What reason do we have to trust his advice listen to his opinion when there is no foundation for the claims he makesPeterson offers some genuinely good advice and surely manyeople need to hear his call to take responsibility for life and do something with it though I doubt those who need to hear this the most will bother reading the book However by giving no firm foundation for his advice he ultimately sets the reader on the Curse of Rocky Colavito path to inevitable despair and disappointment The advice may work for season maybe two but when some success is reached or when hardship comes they will be confronted once again with meaninglessness Like the rich and famous they will discover at the end of their goals the same void from which they fledThere is ultimately only one good news and Peterson shilosophy is not it The good news is that Jesus Christ has acted to save us from the wrath of God not that we can save ourselves and society from hopelessness and despair The good news is that Jesus Christ will one day return and bring an end to all ain and misery and bring justice to all the atrocities of our time and beyond the good news is not that we will work together to forge a better future The good news is that Jesus Christ redeems us calls us and commissions us to live for Him in this world giving us meaning He has revealed the truth and only this truth will set us free Believing in Jesus Christ is the only escape from Nihilism not a vague hope in the intrinsic goodness of being and confidence in our own ability to craft truth and meaning I found his osition on women to be very disappointing Btw I m a guy It was very bad I his osition on women to be very disappointing Btw I m a guy It was very bad I t want to support an author like that I wish I could get my money back honestly and that s a first I don t usually write reviews but the thing is I like Jordan Peterson
