The Difference between Ayn Rand and Jordan B. Peterson

On this week’s Yaron and Amy Show, we got into a discussion of Jordan B. Peterson’s pragmatism. It starts about 59 minutes into the episode:

Today I extracted a one minute teaser (about 1 hour, 19 minutes in?), which includes my take on the essential difference in the ethical foundations of Rand and Peterson. If you like it, I’d appreciate help in sharing the clip. Thanks! (It’s also available as a video on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, where I’ve separately posted the clip.)

Hope your week is off to a good start!
