Parallax Views w/ J.G. Michael

BONUS: “Zizek Vs. Peterson” w/ Slimy Clearing’s Nathan Sacket

April 21, 2019

Here's an Easter gift from Parallax Views! Slimy Clearing's Nathan Sacket and I discuss the April 19th "Great Debate" that saw public intellectuals Jordan B. Peterson, the Jungian psychologist of the Intellectual Dark Web, and Slavoj Zizek, the Slovenian bear and Hegelian-Lacanian philosopher, face off in the squared circle... er, the Sony Center in Toronto. The debate was titled "Happiness: Capitalism Vs. Marxism" and generated a great deal of fanfare for both Peterson and Zizek. Nathan and I tackle the debate as well as what it means and represents in a larger context, and Nathan argues pointedly that we can do better.
