My discussion with Jordan Peterson, August 17

Mark the date: Beginning at 1 p.m. Eastern on the 17th, Professor Peterson and I will discuss university politicization, the pronoun wars, political correctness, and other manifestations of postmodernism. The discussion will be recorded and released on social media.

Our initial point of contact was my book Explaining Postmodernism: Skepticism and Socialism from Rousseau to Foucault, which Dr. Peterson mentions in this lecture:

    I cant wait to see it! To be honest, I tried to read some of your pieces about postmodernism before, but because I was generally unaware of a lot of the background and philosophical underpinnings. I did not really understand how important your ideas were and how much damage postmodernism has done to our society, and how we do not have to passively accept its ideas and be victims to it. Even the word postmodernism sounds so esoteric and absurd that it is hard to hone in on what it is and how we are effected by it.

    It wasn’t until I started watching a lot of Peterson’s videos that I realised he was saying a lot of what you’ve been saying. I am so happy you two will be speaking for all of us to see!

    Wow!!

    A somewhat sad qualification for me is that deeply as I admire and am stirred by Dr. Peterson’s courage, eloquence, and erudition he is ultimately a conservative. He defines himself such and his critics write him off such. And that by itself is not a secure enough foundation to win this battle. It therefore behooves the rest of us in this camp to secure and advocate such a foundation.

    Thank you so much Dr. Hicks. I have been struggling with the committed asininity of so many people I know. They live their lives as conservatives. Proud of their accomplishments. Raise their children to respect others and others property, etc. But they refuse to show any gratitude for living in a western culture. All they do is criticized condemn and complain about our society. Now I understand. Explaining Postmodernism is why. Again. Thank you.
