A Serious Critique of Jordan Peterson

from https://bigthink.com/the-present/jordan-peterson-on-gun-control/
  • JP has lost a bit of edge since the last time I heard him speak
  • The “nested subroutine” model of behavior he presented is a good starting point for analysis
  • He gave some good advice about relationships (to solve problems at the most detailed level possible without implicating unresolvable issues)
  • He downplayed the importance of developing a shared narrative by focusing too much on the behavioral details
  • Without a model for when to go beyond the immediate details and address the narrative framework of the relationship, his advice is untenable

The Good
