(VIDEO) JORDAN PETERSON ON THE EVIL OF POSTMODERNISM




April 15, 2017 Jordan Peterson On The Evil Of Postmodernism.

UPDATE: A belated video of Jordan Peterson on the evils of Postmodernism for those who have not yet figured out what pernicious anti-philosophy is governing our age. The primer was written some years ago by Stephen Hicks.You can find videos and audio material in the Background section at the bottom of this page and in the tab pages underneath the banner. One would ask, what is the antidote to this evil ideology? In the most basic form that would be anyone of the Aristotelian school, primarily Thomas of Aquinas and Ayn Rand's Objectivism: any treatise on philosophy that teaches the objectiveness of reality and morality.

(ANALYSIS) POSTMODERNISM




August 17, 2017 Jordan Peterson talks to Stephen Hicks, author of the compendium on Postmodernism. 

Yesterday Jordan B Peterson spoke with Dr. Stephen Hicks, professor in the philosophy department at Rockford University. Dr. Hicks is the author of the influential and courageous 2004 book Explaining Postmodernism: Skepticism and Socialism from Rousseau to Foucault, which is perhaps even more relevant and important now than it was when it was published. They spoke in depth about the history of philosophy as it has developed since medieval times, trying to understand and describe the processes that led to the rise of postmodern theory.

The book itself can be purchased at Amazon. Dr. Hicks has also made it available in pdf form here. A useful review/overview, written by Dr. Steven Sanders, can be found hereAudiobook. For that and more on Postmodernism check out our About page.
