    Opis

    The truth is something that burns. It burns off dead wood.

    Happiness is a pointless goal. For Jordan B. Peterson, influential clinical psychologist and professor of psychology at the University of Toronto, our true aim should be meaning – not for its own sake, but as a defence against the suffering that is intrinsic to our existence.


    12 Rules for Life is a manifesto of personal change, a handbook to rewire our kneejerk beliefs and concepts of reward and truth. At its heart, this is a polemic of personal responsibility, twelve rules that form the scaffolding of profound growth.

    Each rule is accompanied by vivid and often footnoted example, setting his thinking in context; the sum is a comprehensive, sometimes almost brutal, assault on everyday assumption. Not without his critics, the often-outspoken Peterson rails against the world, from our inability to tell the absolute truth to our innate need to embrace high risk.


    Declaring himself a “classic British liberal”, the author eschews conventional political or social convention to deliver a self-help guide like virtually no other, founded on a dynamic personal philosophy drawn from both academia and experience.


    Jordan B. Peterson originally rose to prominence via his rather more academic Maps of Meaning and is now seen as an influential figure on a number of internet platforms, not least his own YouTube series of lectures.



    MEDIA REVIEWS


    'The first thing you need to know about the clinical psychologist Jordan B Peterson is that millennials think he’s God… His is a strikingly unfashionable kind of message. Grow up and be useful, he tells them — it’s the new counterculture.' – The Times


    'A wonderful psychologist' - Malcolm Gladwell


    'Jordan Peterson is the most important and influential Canadian thinker since Marshall McLuhan. His bold synthesis of psychology, anthropology, science, politics and comparative religion is forming a genuinely humanistic university of the future.' - Camille Paglia


    'Profound, charismatic and serious... One of the most important thinkers to emerge on the world stage for many years ... Peterson has become increasingly difficult to ignore - and whoever chooses to do so will deprive themselves of an intriguing intellectual journey' - Tim Lott, Spectator


    'A master at helping his students become more reflective, and take themselves and their futures more seriously' - Norman Doidge, author of The Brain that Changes Itself


    '12 Rules for Life hits home - from identifying the deeply engrained hierarchical ladder that motivates our decision making to asking indispensable and sometimes politically unpopular questions about your life and suggesting ways to better it.' - Howard Bloom, author of The Lucifer Principle

    O avtorju

    -Jordan B. Peterson-

    Jordan B. Peterson (1962) je odraščal in se utrdil v ledenih goličavah severne Alberte v Kanadi. S kaskaderskim letalom iz karbonskih vlaken je izvedel sodček z lupingom, z astronavti je raziskoval meteoritski krater v Arizoni in v prvem nadstropju svojega doma v Torontu je postavil tradicionalno obredno kolibo kanadskega plemena Kwagu'l, potem ko so ga sprejeli v svojo sredo in mu dali indijansko ime.

    O mitologiji je predaval odvetnikom, zdravnikom in poslovnežem, svetoval je generalnemu sekretarju OZN, svojim kliničnim pacientom je pomagal obvladati depresijo, obsesivno-kompulzivno motnjo, anksioznost in shizofrenijo, bil je svetovalec višjim partnerjem velikih kanadskih odvetniških družb in je ogromno predaval po Severni Ameriki in Evropi. S študenti in kolegi na Harvardu in Univerzi v Torontu je objavil več kot sto znanstvenih člankov, spremenil moderno razumevanje osebnosti, njegova knjiga Maps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief (Zemljevidi pomena: Arhitektura verovanja) pa je revolucionarno spremenila psihologijo religije. Avtor živi v Torontu v Kanadi.
