[Podcast]: Explaining Jordan Peterson

lobsterJordan Peterson has emerged from an obscure corner of academia to become the arch-philosopher of the alt-lite. With a massive online following Peterson  has sought to speak to the anxieties of young men in the face of school transformation. His calling card is a style which purports scientific rigour while disparaging the academic humanities as an irredeemable conspiracy of cultural Marxism. In this interview with George Elliot on Radio One I take a deeper look at the politics of Jordan Peterson. Also apologies to Shuja Haider for mistaking Viewpoint magazine with Tablet. Here is Shuja’s excellent piece on Peterson https://www.viewpointmag.com/2018/01/23/postmodernism-not-take-place-jordan-petersons-12-rules-life/
