Jordan Bernt Peterson is a Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and media commentator. He is best known for his views on cultural and political issues, which have been described as conservative. Peterson has also described himself as a classic British liberal and a traditionalist.
Peterson was born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, in 1962. He received a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Alberta in 1984 and a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from McGill University in 1991.
After completing his doctorate, Peterson conducted research and taught at Harvard University. In 1998, he returned to Canada and became a professor of psychology at the University of Toronto.
Peterson’s first book, Maps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief, was published in 1999. The book explores the psychology of belief systems, drawing on insights from mythology, religion, literature, philosophy, and neuroscience.
In 2016, Peterson released a series of YouTube videos criticizing Bill C-16, a Canadian law that added “gender identity and expression” to the list of prohibited grounds for discrimination.
Peterson argued that the law would make it illegal to refuse to use someone’s preferred pronouns, which he considered to be a form of compelled speech.
Peterson’s views on cultural and political issues have made him a controversial figure. He has been praised by some for his willingness to challenge political correctness and identity politics.
However, he has also been criticized for his views on transgender people and his association with the alt-right.
Despite the controversy, Peterson remains a popular figure. His YouTube channel has over 5 million subscribers, and his books have been translated into dozens of languages. He has also spoken at major universities and conferences around the world.
In 2022, Peterson announced that he was retiring from clinical practice and public speaking due to health reasons. However, he has said that he plans to continue writing and publishing.
