Jordan Peterson is a Canadian clinical psychologist and a professor of psychology at the University of Toronto. His main areas of study are in abnormal, social, and personality psychology, with a particular interest in the psychology of religious and ideological belief,and the assessment and improvement of personality and performance.

Peterson studied at the University of Alberta and McGill University. He remained at McGill as a post-doctoral fellow from 1991 to 1993 before moving to Harvard University, where he was an assistant and then an associate professor in the psychology department.In 1998, he moved back to Canada as a faculty member in the psychology department at the University of Toronto, where he is as of 2018 a full professor.

Peterson’s first book, Maps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief, published in 1999, examined several academic fields to describe the structure of systems of beliefs and myths, their role in the regulation of emotion, creation of meaning, and several other topics such as motivation for genocide. His second book, 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos, was released in January 2018.

In 2016 Peterson released a series of YouTube videos criticizing political correctness and the Canadian government’s Bill C-16. The act added gender identity as a prohibited ground of discrimination, which Peterson characterised as an introduction of compelled speech into law. He subsequently received significant media coverage, attracting both support and criticism. Peterson is associated with the “Intellectual Dark Web”.

Who is Jonathan Haidt?

Jonathan Haidt is the Thomas Cooley Professor of Ethical Leadership at New York University’s Stern School of Business. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania in 1992. He is a social psychologist whose research examines the intuitive foundations of morality, and how morality varies across cultures, including the cultures of American progressives, conservatives, and libertarians. He began his career at the University of Virginia, studying the negative moral emotions, such as disgust, shame, and vengeance, but then moved on to the understudied positive moral emotions, such as admiration, awe, and moral elevation, which got him involved with positive psychology in 1999. Haidt is the author of The Happiness Hypothesis: Finding Modern Truth in Ancient Wisdom, and of the New York Times bestseller The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion. He is currently writing Three Stories about Capitalism: The Moral Psychology of Economic Life.
