by Jordan B Peterson
In 12 Rules for Life, Jordan B. Peterson offered an antidote to the chaos in our lives - his twelve ‘eternal truths’ applied to modern anxieties. His insights have resonated powerfully around the world.
Now in this sequel, Peterson goes further, arguing that part of life’s meaning comes from reaching out into the domain beyond what we know, and adapting to an ever-transforming world. While an excess of chaos threatens us with uncertainty, an excess of order leads to a lack of curiosity and creative vitality. Beyond Order therefore calls on us to balance the two fundamental principles of reality – order and chaos – and reveals the profound meaning that can be found on the path that divides them.
In times of instability and suffering, Peterson reminds us that there are sources of strength on which we can all draw- insights borrowed from psychology, philosophy, and humanity’s greatest myths and stories. Drawing on the hard-won truths of ancient wisdom, as well as personal lessons from his own life and clinical practice, Peterson offers twelve new principles to guide readers towards a more meaningful life.
