Recorded on April 20, 2022, as part of a Classical Liberalism Seminar at the Graduate School of Business at Stanford University.
By any measure, Dr. Jordan Peterson is the most famous (now former-as is discussed in this interview) Canadian professor of clinical psychology in the world. He’s also a deep thinker and a best-selling author of multiple books, and has amassed a huge following through podcasts, TRshow videos, and public speaking. Today, Jordan Peterson is one of the most influential voices in the “anti-woke” movement and this powerful interview demonstrates why.

He genuinely cares for the next generation and their potential. We DESPERATELY NEED more teachers and professors like him.

I’ll never understand how a large number of people disagree with and attack JP when his overriding message is “Make yourself a better person by looking after your own body and mind, because that will make you more capable of looking after those around you including your family, friends and the wider community”. His message changed my life and I imagine that of hundreds of thousands of others like me across the world. What’s not to agree with?

The last statement by Dr. Peterson. That is what every young adult needs to hear. Don't let the sins of your father (parents, ancestors, etc) become your own. You aren't a bad person. You can make this world a better place by placing responsibility on your shoulders. And by making that decision, you become indispensable in a world where everyone blames each other for their failures.

As a Chinese, it hits me hard when Jordan said "a wealthy slave, that's no life man". Have been learning a lot about life from Jordan Peterson. Thank you sir.

This man is helping me to tolerate and understand different perspectives even if I am also in ideology - muslim. I give my best to be open minded and also to be a proper and good muslim. Building bridges between different perspectives is one of the most important things to do if we want to grow as people.

Jordan Peterson is a treasure. It was great to see him interviewed by someone who wasn’t antagonistic and trying to put words in his mouth. Excellent discussion, and the very end hit much harder than I expected it to. His care and integrity are obvious.

To label this interview as excellent would be a crass understatement. This is the kind of stuff that should be required curriculum in all schools.

I love his passion and his heart. I think he earned that with age, pain and wisdom that comes from searching deeply and sincerely. I love his boldness in speaking up when others tear down. Prayers and blessings. 🙏🏽💗

Peter Robinson is the pinnacle of interviewing. His preparation, his ability to cut to the heart of the meter, represent the audience reaction, and to gently steer the conversation and then simply stay silent and allow his guest to speak is fantastic. He’s protestations of ignorance and stupidity are funny but, truly he is a master. Love his conversations and this one is a peach.

It makes sense if one considers how they used and are using universities’ young people’s relative innocence + emotional vulnerability to accomplish their end. Thank you, Professor Peterson

Wow, Jorden Peterson is a gift to humanity. I’m Canadian and in my 60’s. I am embarrassed to say that I have only recently been introduced to him. Incredibly because I saw a rant he did about Covid, so ironically I have Covid to thank. He is an incredible thinker and speaker. My impression is that he is the most unbiased person I’ve ever heard speak. He tells it the way it is, drawing from his incredible volume of knowledge and putting it together in such an understandable format that it’s generally infallible. Then people want to shoot the messenger and call him provocative or controversial. I guess that could be said, but only if one considers the truth and reality of “what is” as being provocative and controversial. Great interview! Great questions, great conversation. Wow. I have been enjoying listening to Jorden Peterson’s incredible mind, what a treat. The university and students loss is society’s gain. I would disagree with him when he expressed that if he hadn’t left his teaching position that his students would be at a disadvantage from getting hired, I beg to differ, I think that NOT getting hired by those people/companies would be a badge of honour for the student because those people/companies are not the quality ones that they should be working for. 👏👏👏👏💕

First time I came across Jordan Peterson. And I must say I am going to buy every one of his books because this man hits a home run on so many issues and quite frankly has a wealth of knowledge to share and all politicians should at least try to do their bit for society listen to this man.

I'm definitely more left-leaning than right though I wholeheartedly support Jordan Peterson, mainly because of his agile and searching intellect and his insistence on producing truisms only via the longest path of deducing from first principles. JP is a giant of free thought and listening to him is akin to hearing a verbal orchestra.

While I don't 'identify' as conservative, I agree with a lot of what Dr. Peterson says. There is room for nuance and discussion and differing views in a healthy democracy. As a Canadian, divide and conquer has been a tactic of our federal government, very disheartening to experience.

"I looked you up and you said you don't like that question, so I won't ask that question" Instant respect for this man. Does his research, is respectful, engages intellectually, even though there is likely incentive to "push where it hurts" in modern journalism and the interview format.

This is the final Jordan Peterson interview I will watch as merely a listener. This interview has set me over the edge- from this day forward I will be making my own videos to spread what I believe to be the truth. Thank you Dr. Peterson for changing my life from hopeless resentment of my existence to my current state of enthusiasm and absolute CONVICTION that I must spread the message of the true god, the god within. May the truth set us all free from our captors and may we not be damned to the hell that awaits otherwise.

He always brings me to tears. I cry with him. I get angry with him. Learn from him and I constantly nod my head with him. It's like the light bulb inside my brain that is already on just gets more voltage and shines brighter very few do this, but then it's like my heart opens up to the inherent truth and that's just so mind-blowing because what he has done like it or not is confirmed that what I know to be true, what I feel to be true, what is actually true... IS TRUE and with the fundemtal removal of lingering doubt that has cursed so many of us, A seed sown by the one who wishes to undermine the very highest value and the deepest truth (call him what you wish he goes by many names) I'm once again set free by the truth which like many others I did not even know I had lost. Thank you JP and thank you for such an insightful, challenging, compelling and real interview. Wow.

Very enlightened exchange. The great thing about Jordan Peterson is his ability to recall his research and others, in the moment. It is this kind of interaction that Americans now lack as a direct result of being isolated from face to face exchange due to the internet. We all talk to our phone now instead of facing the actual people and we've lost the interpretive skills to communicate. It is in fact a discipline. It must be practiced or the discipline is lost.

What a superb interview with a remarkable man. I'm no intellectual, and there were segments in this video that eluded me some, but what i did get was gold. And i especially loved the last bit, where Dr Peterson gave his take on the disparity most young people have to face growing up. That was powerful. I agree, that we as adults, have a moral obligation to paint the future in a more bright light, especially when conveying said future to the next generation... Love from Denmark.

This was one of the best interviews. Jordon kept his responses focused and on track, which he hasn’t always been able to do in the past. His thoughts are so interconnected that I believe there are only six degrees of separation between anything he says, and anything else to be said. Bravo.

Jordan Petersen, as usual, is absolutely brilliant. Unfortunately, those who most need to hear and understand his critical thinking and application of pure logic, because they have become too intellectually lazy and superficial. Deep dive not required, or even desired. He succinctly, objectively, and pragmatically exposes the huge holes in their arguments. Their biggest problem is they read only the Index of chapters, and not the entire book, and then assume that they already know the full content.

I believe this is the best interview ever. You could spend weeks, months, and even years to study and to improve society. How we have gone from a nation of morals, and thinkers, those who were looking at ways of improvement of society to now where we see those who want to tear down society and build a utopia.
