In this lecture, Jordan Peterson continue his discussion of the archaic stories at the beginning of Genesis, including Cain and Abel, and the flood story of Noah (the return of chaos), and the story of the Tower of Babel (which he reads as a very old warning about the danger of erecting something akin to a totalitarian/utopian secular state — so that is pathological order).

This is part of lecture series Maps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief.
