I agree. Peterson is not the wise, old sage that you clearly are.
THe man is literally a genius, and only a liar or a fool would claim otherwise.
He is not a genius and I am neither a liar or a fool. His beliefs are fundamentally flawed.
What do you consider the greatest flaw?
I will pick one, not necessarily of the most import.
He believes the antidote to moral relativism is found in meaning. But meaning is itself, relative.
If you have meaning in your life, you know that it is not "relative".
Dr. Peterson is not talking about how one might act in a "Zen" world; he is talking about how humans function and have functioned and what we can do now in the present conditions.
Of course, all words, all language, all names/nouns are relative in an absolute, existential sense.
When one starts out with a faulty premise it is only natural to end up with a faulty conclusion. That is part of the challenge we face together.
Peterson may very well be helpful to some. I don't believe he offers a way forward for us all.
