I was reading Zen & the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance but it wasn’t entirely enticing or informative for me. I may try to re-read it soon enough. “Things that actually matter” is a phrase used by Peter Singer and A. C. Grayling often in their books. So I borrowed that from their influence. Thank you for pointing out the contradiction, though!
Yes I just re-read this article and realized that it did not do Peterson full justice and oversimplifies his views. I recently started reading his most recent book, 12 Rules for Life. I definitely plan on reading more of his stuff. I have benefited from his online lectures greatly in the past.
I am actually going to see Peterson, Sam Harris, and Bret Weinstein in Vancouver in June!!
Thanks for the comment! Glad to find thoughtful people on this platform. Keep thinking.
