Political Correctness Gone Mad?
‘Without free speech there is no true thought.’ –Jordan Peterson‘You’re telling me I’m being sensitive, and students looking for safe spaces that they’re being hypersensitive. If you’re white, this country is one giant safe space.’–Michael Eric DysonIs political correctness an enemy of free speech, open debate and the free exchange of ideas? Or is it a progressive force, eroding the dominant power relationships and social norms that exclude marginalised groups from society?

12 reglas para vivir: Un antídoto al caos (Spanish Edition)
¿Cuáles son las reglas esenciales para vivir que todos deberíamos conocer? Regla n.° 1: mantente erguido con los hombros hacia atrás…, como las langostas; regla n.° 8: di la verdad, o por lo menos no mientas; regla n.° 11: no molestes a los niños cuando montan en monopatín; regla n.° 12: cuando te encuentres un gato por la calle, acarícialo. Jordan Peterson, «el pensador más polémico e influyente de nuestro tiempo», según el Spectator, nos propone un apasionante viaje por la historia de las ideas y de la ciencia —desde las tradiciones antiguas a los últimos descubrimientos científicos— para tratar de responder a una pregunta esencial: qué información básica necesitamos para vivir en plenitud.Con humor, amenidad y espíritu divulgativo, Peterson recorre países, tiempos y culturas al mismo tiempo que reflexiona sobre conceptos como la aventura, la disciplina y la responsabilidad.Todo con el fin de desgranar el saber humano en doce hondas y prácticas reglas para la vida que rompen radicalmente con los lugares comunes de la corrección política.

Maps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief
Why have people from different cultures and eras formulated myths and stories with similar structures? What does this similarity tell us about the mind, morality, and structure of the world itself? From the author of 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos comes a provocative hypothesis that explores the connection between what modern neuropsychology tells us about the brain and what rituals, myths, and religious stories have long narrated. A cutting-edge work that brings together neuropsychology, cognitive science, and Freudian and Jungian approaches to mythology and narrative, Maps of Meaning presents a rich theory that makes the wisdom and meaning of myth accessible to the critical modern mind.

Why Tell the Truth: An Introduction to the Basic Ideas of Jordan B. Peterson
Having more than 300 hours' worth of lectures online makes Peterson's work a mountain so large that the climb seems impossible, save only for the fervent. Why listen to a man many have already labelled a charlatan, a self-help guru, or worse, an alt-right prophet? One reason is because most have not placed his popular teaching in the context of his own work. This is an introduction to Jordan B. Peterson's ideas for the average person.Based on the article shared and recommended by Jordan B. Peterson himself, Why Tell the Truth: An Introduction to the Basic Ideas of Jordan B. Peterson outlines, explains, and connects the basic ideas of Jordan Peterson in seven chapters:
  • This book significantly revises, updates, and expands the original essay and includes new references in light of recently released interviews, debates, and articles. The reader will be introduced to how Peterson understands science to be based on a motivational understanding of reality; the ideas of chaos and order; his ideas concerning postmodernism, Marxism, hierarchies, religion, and more!From the Foreword:"Peterson's huge popular appeal can easily be chalked up to his charisma, a 'black box' or occult entity that names his draw without really explaining it. Here again, however, attention to his understand- ing of truth proves instructive. As Lovins demonstrates in this book, Peterson's more pragmatic understanding of truth maintains a tight connection between thought with practice. It is from the embodied manifestation of the power of this connection in Peterson's teaching that much of the forceful appeal of his position arises. People, accustomed to encountering 'truth' in anaemic and enervated forms, are startled to attention when they see someone declaring truth as something vital and powerful, as something that is profoundly integrated into and animating of the life of its bearer.While a weak notion of truth may serve us in our partisan ideological and political squabbles, faced with the reality of suffering, it will prove insufficient to sustain us. It is not accidental that Peterson's vision has been forged in large measure upon the brutal anvil of totalitarian political forces in the twentieth century. In facing the problem of suffering, Peterson is not merely addressing the concerns of contemporary social and political discourse that tend to revolve around the maintenance of the complacency of a shallow consumerist comfort, but is unearthing dark corners of the human soul and emphasizing the need for self-mastery if we are to become people of integrity, people who can survive and overcome the worst that life and society can throw at us. Not content with encouraging persons to be well-adjusted members of a materialistic modern society, Peterson desires to equip us to withstand the sort of radical personal and social evil witnessed in communist and fascist countries over the last hundred years of history.It should come as no surprise that a great many people who have been seeking direction and strength to endure personal suffering have found rich spiritual sustenance in the teaching of Peterson. As an alternative to the dry morsels of bread afforded by mere ideology, words of genuine truth prove life-giving and empowering."

    Jordan B. Peterson: 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos
    Amusing, amazing and instructive, Dr. Peterson reveals to us why skateboarding young men and young ladies must be allowed to sit unbothered, what horrible destiny anticipates the individuals who reprimand too effortlessly, and why you should constantly pet a feline when you meet one in the city. What does the sensory system of the modest lobster need to inform us concerning standing up straight (with our shoulders back) and about achievement throughout everyday life? For what reason did antiquated Egyptians love the ability to give careful consideration as the most elevated of divine beings? What repulsive ways do individuals tread when they end up angry, pompous and vindictive? Dr. Peterson travels extensively, examining discipline, flexibility, experience and duty, refining the world's insight into 12 viable and significant principles forever. 12 Rules for Life smashs the cutting edge commonplaces of science, confidence and human instinct, while changing and honoring the psyche and soul of its perusers.

    Man's Search For Meaning: The classic tribute to hope from the Holocaust
    9 MILLION COPIES SOLD'A book to read, to cherish, to debate, and one that will ultimately keep the memories of the victims alive' John Boyne, author of The Boy in the Striped PyjamasA prominent Viennese psychiatrist before the war, Viktor Frankl was uniquely able to observe the way that both he and others in Auschwitz coped (or didn't) with the experience. He noticed that it was the men who comforted others and who gave away their last piece of bread who survived the longest - and who offered proof that everything can be taken away from us except the ability to choose our attitude in any given set of circumstances. The sort of person the concentration camp prisoner became was the result of an inner decision and not of camp influences alone. Frankl came to believe man's deepest desire is to search for meaning and purpose. This outstanding work offers us all a way to transcend suffering and find significance in the art of living.
