Zizek vs Peterson debate

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Aniihya on Sun Apr 28, 2019 5:11 pm

In my opinion, the debate between Slavoj Zizek and Jordan Peterson could have been better. Peterson utilized too many logical fallacies, especially strawmen. Zizek on the other hand was overthinking too much. Despite the flaws of both sides, I would says Zizek won because Peterson wasn't competent enough to defend capitalism as it isn't his forte. He is a psychologist and not an economist or very economically political person.

I agree! Zizek seemed to recurse frequently into old ideas without exploring Peterson's points. Peterson didn't rise to the occasion, and instead danced around his points as if to respect Zizek's show of face...
