Phenomenology: Heidegger, Binswanger, Boss – A Personality Guide By Jordan B. Peterson

The prosperous nations never forget their heroes and those who worked hard to add up in the history of evolution. Jordan B. Peterson, a well-known psychiatrist, coats the personalities in the lectures and introduces them to the students. In this lecture, Peterson talks about Heidegger, Binswanger, and Boss. Ludwig Binswanger is a famous psychiatrist who also worked as a writer and wrote about the principles of existential phenomenology. Medard Boss is a trained physician who used his knowledge to humanize psychology.

Key Points

 One way to look at something is the absence of sickness, which is the closest thing we have to a scientific method of being well.

  • It’s much simpler and easier to start from the beginning and go directly to the subject’s heart.
  • In pain, there is a quality that doesn’t appear to be reducible to a collection of objective facts, just as there is a quality to colour, beauty, love, and sadness.
  • You have a certain emotional response to something, sometimes a negative emotional reaction. You commonly see this in disagreements with people, particularly when debating with someone you care about, such as a family member or a friend.
  • Your history and present define your choices right now, affecting how the future unfolds around you.

Although we can consider an object in certain ways, most of the items humans interact with are not in the class. For example, imagine you want to go to medical school, so you read about it in the cat and receive the envelope in the mail. The fact becomes a representative of your personality.

First, you must establish a frame of reference for personality, and you must only carry out some operations while leaving others unattended. Because of this, even in scientific definitions of objects, you aren’t defining the item in question. Your assertion that this is a multi-dimensional entity is correct. If you approach it in this manner, isn’t it the proper technique to follow? If you come to the approaches in this manner, they manifest that particular set of characteristics.

You will get a completely different book than the one you read when you were 16. The book has the same set of content, but the difference is because of your thinking abilities. The development of your personality enables a different thinking perspective in your mind. The more you develop, the more is the knowledge in your mind to explore things.

Even when you’re using your hearing or your eyes, perception is more like feeling things out with your fingers. It’s always on the go. There’s no idling in the background. It’s a physical act to comprehend. As a result, your hierarchy of values dictates how you do that motor act. From another perspective, that’s a different way to think about things. Also, that’s how the past and future are implied in it. Your complete value system determines how active you perceive the world.

Opinion Lecture Twelve Jordan Peterson 

This I have to say was a little less interesting for me, no alt-right as yet. He made his points well and they are enjoyable, I guess the subject was just less of my personal interest. However solid delivery holds my attention.

In this chapter, Peterson discussed Heidegger’s philosophical analysis of being from the perspective of Heidegger’s psychotherapists, Ludwig Binswanger and Medard Boss. Phenomenologists sought to reduce the painful separation between subject and object that has the consequence of wiping meaning out of existence.
