What a great introduction to psychology this series of lectures is. I listened to some of Peterson's audiobooks - they are great as well - but he's on his best when he is allowed to improvise, point out connections to related fields, go off-the-road, go deep into all kinds of rabbit holes and then miraculously get back on track- almost like a jazz musician. In that respect, he's as much of an artist as a scientist. High in orderliness AND openness, as he would say.

Another aspect I love is how he

Excelente y relevante, como para oír de nuevo más de una vez (aunque primero oiría sus libros-libros, que esto es más casi un bootleg de una clase).

Taking this course was the best thing that happened to me in a long time. Prof. Peterson has been my mentor for a very long time, and I'm so glad I discovered him.
This course introduced me to many school of thoughts in philosophy; (Existentialism, Phenomenology), and psychology; (Behaviorism, Psychoanalysis.) I also got introduced to many great thinkers of the last 200 years like:
Friedrick Nietzsche (my favorite philosopher as of now LOL), Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Carl Jung,
