WHY (NOT) INVITE JORDAN PETERSON TO PALACKY UNIVERSITY

Jordan Peterson is not the only activist-academic. Other academic activists have already visited my home university, and they are much more famous in many respects, and the impact of their words is longer than in Peterson - Chomsky, Dawkins. The latter is indeed in these days in Olomouc. In his last lecture he popularized his biological research and almost did not mention his critique of religion. So he acted primarily as a scientist and not as an activist. If a lecture by Jordan Peterson was carried in this spirit, it would be irrelevant against his speech.


At the same time, it is clear that Peterson has become generally known as an activist. Who knows his psychological theses and reads his professional book - and who knows him primarily as a critic of political correctness? Dawkins first became famous for his Selfish Gene book before he became activist: his Olomouc audience apparently came to him primarily as a respected biologist, and as a respected biologist he performed.


[snip]

University officials said after the statement that Jordan Peterson, like Richard Dawkins, should be invited to the Academia Film Olomouc (AFO) festival. That is, in my opinion, an ideal platform for such a show. I also say this as a man who has been helping with this dramaturgy for years. AFO is not the official land of the university, although it has much in common with the university. And the organizers are certainly so experienced not to allow Jordan Peterson's gig to be a glorious event for his uncritical fans - just as they did with Richard Dawkins - but it's a full-fledged academic event, though controversial for some.

He started his education in polisci and finished it in clinical psych. He has no biology credentials or experience.

Why are you even asking? Peterson is fading from public view in places like this one. Your resurrection of Peterson-mania is deeply concerning to me, unless you can prove that Peterson is still a hot property in the blogosphere.

There's 89 pages of posts here, mopc... could you specify which video you're talking about? Either quote the post or give the post number from the top left of the individual post.

It's clearly listed in the YT video that the guy who published it is joking - it's a parody. Harris is talking about Trump but the Socratic Atheist is saying it works for Peterson too.

Socratic Atheist wrote:This is a clip of Sam Harris describing the reasoning process. I am saying that this description is being stated by Sam Harris, and that it accurately describes Jordan Peterson, not that Sam Harris actually said this about Jordan Peterson. I uploaded this video to use in a discussion on twitter as a reply to a JP fan boy who just did not understand how intellectually bankrupt Peterson appeared to literally millions of people.

Yabut. What am I supposed to do if I'm not a fan of dichotomies? Peterson rubs me the wrong way from the outset, but I'm far from whatever I understand a neo-Marxist to be after contrapoints banishes the fear that neo-Marxism is a threat to the West.

I mean, I'm just not made for a world that consists of attacks on my side of the dichotomy and consequent takedowns thereof.
