Dr. Jordan B. Peterson is a professor of psychology at the University of Toronto, a clinical psychologist and the author of the multi-million copy bestseller 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos.

It was recorded at the Cambridge Union, a debating and free speech society within Cambridge University, UK.
