Oxford University – the Last Academic Bastion for Free Speech and Open Debate?

Written by Onan Coca

Recently, Canadian Professor Dr. Jordan Peterson, and Youtube host Dave Rubin were in London at the Apollo Hammersmith as part of their current tour promoting his new book.

Peterson speaks from his position as an academic, and Rubin from his as a comedian and cultural commentator.

Renowned professor, clinical psychologist, and bestselling author Dr. Jordan Peterson will be bringing his live lecture to London as part of his 12 Rules for Life 2018 tour. The London date marks one of twelve dates, eleven of which take him across the United States.

Peterson will be delivering revolutionarily talks on overcoming life’s biggest obstacles, looking at self-improvement, the psychology of religion, mythology and much more.

Dr Jordan Peterson is currently a professor at the University of Toronto, and a former Harvard Professor. The clinical psychologist and cultural critic primarily studies religion and ideological belief. Dr. Peterson has published over one hundred scientific papers, as well as writing Maps Of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief and 12 Rules For Life: An Antidote to Chaos.

His lectures have been turned into a 13-part series on TVO, following his nomination for the prestigious Levinson Teaching Prize. He has been interviewed on the likes of the BBC, Channel 4, as well as popular podcasts and shows, including Under The Skin with Russell Brand.

While in the U.K. both men were invited to speak to the prestigious debating club, the Oxford Union at Oxford University.

Both men spent their time speaking with the students defending free speech and assaulting the left’s embrace of political correctness.

Here’s Rubin’s interaction:

Here’s Dr. Peterson’s conversation:

There is something going out there, folks. A new group of leaders who are willing to speak truth to power, in spite of the leftwing vitriol that is being levied against them.
