I am currently writing a short book titled The Ideas of Jordan Peterson. By supporting my writing, you enable the production of a work that will discuss Peterson's ideas impartially, making his thinking available to varied audiences by distilling it and linking it to other intellectual traditions.

Despite the tidal wave of social media attention that he is receiving, Peterson is here to stay. Yet, if his ideas are going to spread, they will need to be discussed in respected and established academic venues (for an explanation of why that is the case, click here). The sooner this happens, the better. I thus want to treat this thinker with the seriousness and rigor that his ideas deserve.

As a professionally-trained philosopher with a book and over 30 peer-reviewed articles to my credit, I have a proven track record of writing about controversial figures in a non-polemical manner. Not everyone is in a position to do that, so it is a division of labor. It is also a labor of love: I really enjoy writing a book on Peterson's philosophy—and I get the sense that many people will enjoy reading such a book too.

So, help me turn that exciting vision into reality. Thank you!


SHORT BIO:
I made the decision to become a philosopher on September 11th, 2001, because I believe that having more critical thinkers around makes my world a safer place. I haven't taken a day off since. I now have two PhDs, one in Philosophy of Mind from York University in Toronto and another in Philosophy of Signs (Semiotics) from the University of Quebec in Montreal. I did my post-doctoral work at the University of Helsinki and have taught at York University and Trent University, where I was nominated for two teaching awards.
