One of the most fascinating YouTube series available today also happens to be in the form many people dread. Professor Jordan B. Peterson’s lecture series on the Psychological Significance of the Biblical Stories should be a disaster; it is a composite of every cliché we are warned the modern age rejects.
Peterson gives content-heavy lectures, no slide show or graphics, no guest speakers, just 40 hours of his thoughts in language that requires serious attention. And it is wonderful.
We often consume podcasts and videos that do not force us to think, but this series sets the mind racing. Each point is a segue into a realm of thought that makes you want to do research. Whether it’s where dreams come from, how acting morally serves us well, or discussing why the Bible has survived when even empires have fallen, Peterson grabs your attention and encourages you to think more.
