Clinical psychologist Jordan Peterson, one of the world’s most popular public thinkers, whose talks have been seen by tens of millions of viewers comes to the how to: Academy with a talk on 12 Rules for Life: The most valuable things everybody should know.

Jordan Peterson has profoundly influenced the modern understanding of personality. His lectures on topics from the Bible to romantic relationships to mythology are watched by a million viewers a month. In an era of unprecedented change and polarising politics, his frank and refreshing message about the value of individual responsibility and ancient wisdom has resonated around the world.

In this talk , he will set out twelve profound and practical principles for how to live a meaningful life, from setting your house in order before criticising others to comparing yourself to who you were yesterday, not someone else today. Happiness is a pointless goal, he shows us. Instead we must search for meaning, not for its own sake, but as a defence against the suffering that is intrinsic to our existence.

Drawing on vivid examples from his clinical practice and personal life, cutting edge psychology and philosophy, and lessons from humanity’s oldest myths and stories, Peterson will take us on an intellectual journey like no other. Gripping, thought-provoking and deeply rewarding, his 12 Rules for Life will offer an antidote to the chaos in our lives: eternal truths applied to our modern problems.
