      I find he goes completely off topic for major segments of the lecture and integrates erroneous information. There is better content on Freud.

    1- Freud was the first person to say a lot of things that we take for granted today
    2- Mental disorders have a sociological element
    The culture battles against the individual (superego x id) and the battle between the individual and the culture is going to take forms that differentiate between cultures (brief comment: the cultures are different so they have a different impact on people; and people are different as well, so each person is going to have a unique battle)
    3 - Sex; sexual diseases; birth control pill
    4 - Book suggestion: The discovery of the unconscious (Jordan says it is the best introduction to the psychoanalitic thought)
    5 - People lived on about a dollar a day at 19th century
    6 - Freud was very influenced by Nietzche
    7 - We take a lot of things for granted nowadays, like: People don’t always say what they mean. Their speech and their actions are influenced by factors that they are not necessarely conscious of. Passions, dreams and mental illnesses are manifestations of the unconscious
    8 - Freud’s ideas were rapidly integrated into the culture (in despite of the resistance that really existed and exists)
    That is why people talk so much about his erros. Everything that he was right about was integrated into the culture and is now taken for granted, so the only things left “about him” are his erros
    9 - Sublimation
    10 - Educated man will marry uneducated woman, but educated woman won’t marry uneducated man. Woman look for someone who is at least as competent as they are or even more competente
    11 - The superego (Society) vs the id: jail analogy
    The more authoritarian the Society is, the bigger is the struggle between the individual (attempting to be an individual) and the culture (attempting to turn him into an absolutely predictable machine)
    Very related to number 2
    12 - Freud viewed the primary conflict in mental life as the ego tortured by the id (biological forces), but also inhibited and repressed by the superego
    13 - Piaget: The fundamental conflict within people isn’t necessarely social vs the individual.
    The fundamental conflict is between motivational systems
    and then between their expression across time within the individual
    and then between their expression across time within the individual in relationship to all other individuals and to society
    (So it is more like a complex problem that could be solved by a civilized game than a massive force, that being superego, crushing the individual into submission)
    14 - Neurotic people
    15 - People on the bottom of dominance hierarchy are much more likely to consider the spirit of the structure as an authoritarian and repressive spirit, because it isn’t making room for you
    16 - Industrial Revolution
    17 - Superego x id and school system; ADHD; Jaak Panksepp and rats
    18 - Hypothesis test and hypothesis generation
    19 - Freud’s hypothesis generation
    20 - Behaviorism and ethology; Skinner; Frans de Waal
    21 - You have twice as many female ancestors as you do male ancestors
    22 - Freud, Jung and other clinicians are basically ethologists. They are studying human beings at their relatively natural environment and trying to figure out how they work
    23 - Clinical practice vs lab work
    24 - Reason, emotion and motivation
    25 - After Freud we understood that we are not driven mostly by rationality. This is a BIG discovery. “Little rational guy” analogy (43:10)
    26 - The rational intelect is not the fundamental element of people’s being
    27 - Darwin
    28 - Terror management theory
    29 - Free association
    The importance of talking (52:30)
    30 - Explainning a movie to a friend
    31 - Fighting with someone you love
    32 - Epigenetics
    33 - We can represent ideas in symbolic forms
    34 - Dreams
    35 - The unconscious; when someone is mad
    36 - People who don’t end bad relationships
    37 - Ego vs id and the “I wish I didn’t say that when I was angry”
    38 - Voluntarily inaccessible memories and the unconscious
    39 - Unconscious and new ideas (brainstorm)
    40 - Unconscious and myths; Jung

    I've followed Prof. Peterson for 4+ years now but was directed recently to later episodes in this academic series, I guess, because KZclip recognized I was a devotee of Russian literature so, after watching those, I began at the beginning. In this segment I feel that he really inhabits the material. He is discussing Freud extemporaneously, following his notes, in a fashion that truly expresses what his mind knows. It's primal and pure.

Then I destroyed those thoughts, which freed me from those chains. I have some chains to break but I'm getting there.

    One of my favorites of his lectures. The idea that we can be precisely scientific and objective with what's going on in people's heads seems a bit far fetched, so the best you're going to get is a tool to help you chisel at the edges, and that's what Freud and Jung offered. Both of them had ideas that still apply today.

    This was incredibly self reflectional. Since the Piaget lecture, i've been constantly self reflecting thanks to Professor. But this directly speaks to mental illness and as someone who has to take heavy anti psychotics due to suicidal tendencies, all i ACTUALLY want is someone to talk to. Someone who would listen and the problems would then go away.

      @Gourkis Firstly, thank you so much for taking your time to write such a detailed reply. Was not expecting this at all. :)
      Ah so that is the counsellor personality? You have an amazing gift, as this means you 'listen' to people and listen well, and truth be told, that's mostly what we (atleast i) want desperately.
      Pills may help during anxiety attack or extreme distress situations, but really, life has come to such a point, no medicine would work. i listen to professor every night (i get a little over 1 and half hr at night to eat and everything) and reflect on my thoughts, how i faced the day, etc and it helps me tremendously. Sometimes i write them in a comment or write on an online journal to help.
      i don't think i can grasp Jung without Professor Peterson, but i will give it a look, thank you.

    • Gourkis
      Gourkis 3 жыл бұрын +1

      You would also be correct. I believe that pills can sometimes help people, by "masking" what is "actually" going on inside of them.
      But by no means, could that ever fix them. When I started listening to Dr. Peterson, I also found out about Dr. Jung.
      Listening to things from Dr. Jung just made sense to me. I think that so much from him was swept under the rug. Because he didn't fit the "pill model" that is pushed upon everyone today.
      Dr. Jung was once considered to have went crazy, but he also fixed himself. And was also able to do the same for his patients.
      By listening to them, and then helping them to make sense of what was going on inside of them.
      From what I understand, and relate to about him... He was truly an amazing person and blessing to the field of psychology.
      His personality type, as far as I'm concerned. Was also specifically designed for psychoanalysis.
      I share that same type, and have been naturally drawn to studying people's thinking, behavior, and their well being...
      Ever since I was a small child or knew that psychology even existed.
      That personality type is not called
      "The Counselor" for nothing.
      I'm not saying that everyone with this type is guaranteed to be good at it, or that other types couldn't be.
      But I do believe that people with certain personality types are better suited and probably prefer certain fields over others, based on their type.

    You know Peterson talks a lot about how humans find it really useful to just throw themselves at a problem and in the process of dealing with it they improve as a person generally, and I feel like it's really cool to be able to see how that has played out to a large extent in his time in the public spot light. You can in this video that he is a lot less refined than he has become. Not to say that his style in this is "bad," and the topics are still very much interesting, but it is cool to see how has become such an intellectual/explanatory power house in the time that he has been actively engaged in public discourse to the extent that he has since the whole pronouns thing. There is a sort of clarity conviction in the way he presents now that adds to the impact of his explanations really powerfully. I definitely wouldn't wanna try to debate something with the guy thats for sure. Or at least with the intent to win haha.

    That was an interesting lecture. I hope in the lectures about existentialism, you would point at Sartre's existential psychoanalysis in which there is a room for intentionality, choice and decision. From this point of view, emotions like anger don't stem from sub-personalities or drives, but they are purposeful and part of our choices and our way of dealing with the world.

    For anybody who couldn't hear/make out what Freud dictates in the recording at the beginning:
    "I started my professional activity as a neurologist trying to bring relief to my neurotic patients. Under the influence of an older friend and by my own efforts, I discovered some important new facts about the unconscious in psychic life, the role of instinctual urges, and so on. Out of these findings grew a new science, psychoanalysis, a part of psychology, and a new method of treatment of the neuroses. I had to pay heavily for this bit of good luck. People did not believe in my facts and thought my theories unsavory. Resistance was strong and unrelenting. In the end I succeeded in acquiring pupils and building up an International Psychoanalytic Association. But the struggle is not yet over."

    I had a dream that I was reaching my arm as far I could and Jordan's hand was clasping mine, as if pulling me out of or into something and towards him. In a lecture explaining Carl Jung's interpretation of dreams, Peterson said "Jung believed the dream is trying to express a reality that is outside of fully articulated conscious comprehension" or "the dream is telling you something you don't know." While I'm not sure I fully believe that, and his presence in my dream is probably a consequence of my interest in his lectures, it's entertaining and interesting to think about it (and other dreams) according to Jung's interpretation.

I got my education but I gave in to my worst demons in the process.

      Ares P his previous lecture on Jung described true artist being at the edge and could relate archetypes in stories knowing they worked and not necessarily why.
      I found for me Jordan has found a way to address a deeper older knowledge that modern culture overlooks but needs. I think his appeal is such that we sense what he says are archetypical constants but not necessarily know why.

      @BirdBrainViz Don't pay that any mind. That's just someone spewing empty negativity just for the sake of spewing it.
      I have been able to find a sense of peace, and help myself by working through a few different things, since I became aware of him.
      Things that troubled me that I had been struggling with for some time now.
      Since I started listening to Dr. Peterson and looking into other things related to human behavior, our psychology, our relationship to each other, and the things in our environments.
      I "personally" have felt much better, but that's just me... and I'm sure thousands of other people.
      If that wasn't the case, Dr. Peterson would hardly even be relevant.

    Jordan Peterson is great, he looks so young here, Ive never watched the older lectures beyond 2016, the carnivore diet really did change his physique tremendously, it's pretty crazy now that I see where he came from.

    Yes! The truth will always come to Light! Dr. Peterson is a National Treasure for sure on many levels. It could be, in the course of time, that professors and psychologists will be adding Peterson's name to the long line of other historical and notable psychologists.

    So thankful to have found this lecture on Freud.
    Throughout my entire undergraduate degree, all of my professors basically laughed at Psychodynamic/ psychoanalytic theory without genuinely articulating why. There seems to be a backlash to Freud's case studies methods, particularly on upper-middle-class white people, as they are not a representative sample of the general population. Ironically, the large majority of contemporary psychological theory is based on white psychology students and thus is also not representative of the population at large. I really can't understand this hatred for Freud and this overt bias toward CBT, despite the shallow theraptuic approach invloved in CBT.

    Here's a transcript of that Freud recording. Even if you look up the original it's hard to understand his voice (he had mouth cancer at the time):
    "I started my professional activity as a neurologist trying to bring relief to my neurotic patients.
    Under the influence of an older friend and by my own efforts, I discovered some important and new facts about the unconscious in psychic life, the role of instinctual urges and so on.
    Out of these findings grew a new science, Psycho-Analysis, a part of psychology and a new method of treatment of the neuroses.
    I had to pay heavily for this bit of good luck. People did not believe in my facts and thought my theories unsavoury.
    Resistance was strong and unrelenting. In the end I suceeded in acquiring pupils and building up an International Psycho-Analytic Association. But this struggle is not yet over. Sigmund Freud."

    Watching this in 2022 makes me realize just how consistently brilliant Dr. Peterson has been across time, as well as how great and healthy he looks since dropping a few dozen pounds over the last number of years😂😂. In reality Jordan would still be much sharper than us all even if he resembled jabba the hut.

    I thought the part about Freud’s genius was compelling due to the comparison with a manic person’s delusion that they were a genius was striking: really puts into perspective how intellectual explorations of uncharted psychological territories can be seen as both so revolutionarily and divinely brilliant to such a degree that the only way to explain the problems posed by the very nature of their own complexity is via a comparison to the gibberings of a thoroughly ill person possessed by manic delusions convinced that say they were God. Its as if the concept of how ‘Yahweh created the world out of form and void’ can be likened to understanding a derivation of klingon translated into a multi-dimensional semaphore for tesseract technology, only to have the sole recorded instance of its divine message being piped through several layers of encrypted mimeographs, squashed into glue, built into a house, destroyed, with the semitones of it’s destruction turned into a song that was covered by a 90’s grunge band and piped over a school loudspeaker.

    Dr. Peterson is a gem, a walking treasure of knowledge and wisdom, I imagine that one day people will look back at him similar to people like Issac Newton, someone who can understand and be able to explain concepts that aren't fully understood yet, but also be able to advance them in some way by making these understanding public knowledge regardless of what people threaten him with

    Slips of the tongue aren't always as deep as they might seem.
