The Psychological Significance of the Biblical Stories

12-Part Spring/Summer Lecture series by Dr. Jordan B. Peterson

Sold Out!

Thank you to everyone who supported this series. All lectures will be available on YouTube and via the Jordan B Peterson Podcast.

The Bible is a series of books written, edited and assembled over thousands of years. It contains the most influential stories of mankind. Knowledge of those stories is essential to a deep understanding of Western culture, which is in turn vital to proper psychological health (as human beings are cultural animals) and societal stability. These stories are neither history, as we commonly conceive it, nor empirical science. Instead, they are investigations into the structure of Being itself and calls to action within that Being. They have deep psychological significance. This lecture series, starting with the very first book, will constitute an analysis of that significance.
