Twelve Rules for Life

This is a self-help book, and most of the rules make a lot of sense. I teach students and am a father and I have told some of these things to some of them and I hope they helped them. “Stand up straight with your shoulders back.” “ Make friends with people who want the best for you.” “ Tell the truth -–or, at least, don’t lie.” There are three of the best ones, and they are honestly both helpful and difficult. I think that Peterson’s background as a clinical psychologist gives him the background and perspective to help a lot of people. The method that Peterson uses to support his principles is novel. First, he uses psychological studies, as one might suspect of a psychology professor. Second, he uses personal experience. Third, however, he searches back through human history to look at how ancient civilizations perceived how our society works. This is related to his first book, Maps of Meaning. I don’t know if he is correct or not about that part, but his interpretations of, for example, the story of Adam and Eve or the Babylonian god Marduk make for interesting reading. So does his interpretation of Pinocchio. Some people really hate Peterson and this book and I am sure that I cannot list all their reasons, but I will try to deal with three. The first is political. Peterson is a Prairie Conservative and so he mouths the phrases of that viewpoint. I saw my YouTube feed this morning wanted me to watch a video of him and Rex Murphy criticizing Trudeau. I gave it a pass. Basically, I disagree with him, but it’s not as if he is all wrong. When he talks about identity or gender politics on campus, he is generally correct. And he says what probably most people believe about that. And, although I voted Liberal, I think that the Conservatives are going to win the Canadian election on Monday, and partly for the reasons Peterson gives. Justin Trudeau told a beautiful story at his father’s funeral. He said that when he was a young boy, he was in the Parliamentary cafeteria with his father, and Justin said a snarky remark about one of his father’s political opponents. Pierre made Justin go over an apologize to the man. He said that, although he and that man disagreed about politics, they both wanted to do their best for the country, and for that, he should be respected. I believe that is an important political principal we should not forget. The other reason people disagree is his theoretical analysis of human society and what we can do about it. Peterson has a complete, fairly Burkean, idea of how human societies change, how they need to change. However, it does not square with the radical ideas of many campus feminists or identity activists. His approach in this book is, given that society is how it is, how can the individual thrive? Here are twelve ideas. And that approach basically outlines one of the great differences between psychology and sociology. Psychology is more concerned with the individual and sociology with society. Peterson has an idea of sociology, but it doesn’t really encompass radical, revolutionary change but rather evolutionary reform over a period of time. Finally, the book’s subtitle is “An Antidote to Chaos.” Now, there are two ways to look at this. The first is that Peterson is trying to help people sort out the chaos in their life and bring about a sort of order, in which through their own effort they can improve themselves and their immediate environment. The other is what troubles some feminists. In Peterson’s theory of change, men are identified with order and women with chaos. There are two important points to keep in mind with this. First, Peterson is not trying to tell you how things should be, he is trying to tell you how ancient civilizations such as the Babylonians, Egyptians and Jews saw it, and what was valuable about their analyses. Second, he thinks that for a “good” society to develop, order and chaos must be balanced. Too much order brings tyranny and too much chaos is anarchy. Therefore, one way to read the title is “An Antidote to Women.” I really don’t think that is what he meant, but he maybe should have thought a bit harder about that. I disagree with “Don’t protest until you put your own house in order.” Everything good in the world was done by imperfect people. This kind of reminds me of cancel culture. Everyone has many failings, but few people are truly exceptional in a few areas. Should we emphasize their normal human failings or their exceptional gifts? Everyone has the right to try to change the world. Now Dr. Peterson has another twelve rules, but I don’t know if I am going to read that book. I am having quite enough difficulty trying to follow the first twelve.
