Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (Existentialism)

--From: 2014 Personality Lecture 13: Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (Existentialism)-- Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, perhaps the greatest Russian author of the twentieth century, was an Orthodox Christian existentialist, a direct descendant of Dostoevsky's thinking, and a man who took a mighty axe to the terrible tangled roots of communist totalitarianism. He associated inauthentic being on the part of the individual, within society, with the direct degeneration of that society into tyranny and malevolence. -- For AdvertisingInquiries, visithttps://www.advertisecast.com/TheJordanBPetersonPodcast

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (Existentialism)

Foreword to The Gulag Archipelago: 50th Anniversary

I had the great privilege of writing the foreword to the 50th-anniversary version of the abridged version of one of the most important books of the 20th century, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's The Gulag Archipelago, a devastating account of the absolute horror wreaked upon the people of the Soviet Empire by the acolytes of the doctrine of Karl Marx. I read the foreword here, in its entirety, and encourage everyone to purchase and study the book. It changed the world. The 50th-anniversary version of The Gulag Archipelago is available at Amazon UK at https://amzn.to/2CQ8O6O or at multiple booksellers on the dedicated Penguin Random House page at https://bit.ly/2Q2CUrb NOTE: The North American license is held by Harper Collins, and the book is not available in its 50th-anniversary form except from the sellers above. -- Additional relevant links re Solzhenitsyn: Main webpage: http://www.solzhenitsyn.ru/main.php Nobel Prize acceptance speech: https://bit.ly/2SvkaSS I have recommended many of S...

Foreword to The Gulag Archipelago: 50th Anniversary

Maps of Meaning 12: Final - The Divinity of the Individual

In this, the final Maps of Meaning lecture for 2017, Dr. Peterson reviews the year and its offerings: What is a belief system? Why are people so inclined to engage in conflict to protect their belief systems? It's partly because our belief systems are not only systems of belief, but structures that serve to render everyone who participates in that belief and its dramatization and acting out in the world predictable, trustworthy and cooperative (even when competing). Is there a hierarchy of rank or value among belief systems, or are they merely arbitrary? What is the relationship between descriptions of the objective world and moral guidelines? How do you determine how to conduct yourself in the world? What should you do (and is that question even genuine -- or answerable?) What inbuilt structures do you bring into the world, as a consequence of biological evolution, that help you orient yourself in life, in the face of its overwhelming complexity? What is the relationship between th...

Maps of Meaning 12: Final - The Divinity of the Individual

Maps of Meaning 11: The Flood and the Tower

In this lecture, Dr. Peterson continues his discussion of the archaic stories at the beginning of Genesis, including Cain and Abel, and the flood story of Noah (the return of chaos), and the story of the Tower of Babel (which he reads as a very old warning about the danger of erecting something akin to a totalitarian/utopian secular state -- that is pathological order).

Maps of Meaning 09: Patterns of Symbolic Representation

In this lecture, Dr. Peterson discusses the manner in which the fundamental symbolic archetypes (particularly those dealing with the Wise King and Tyrant) are hijacked for the purposes of propaganda. Ideologies are parasites. Their hosts are archetypes. Knowledge of the underlying archetypes can produce immunity against ideological possession.
