Jordan Peterson Beyond Order book summary :

Peterson's real interest in writing his last book, 12 Rules for Life, grew out of a personal hobby of answering questions posted on Quora; One such question is, "Should everyone know the most valuable things?", To which there are 42 rules. Originally psychological in their intent, the rules of both books are stated using specific episodes of Peterson's clinical experience.

Furthermore, Peterson said that these rules were "explicitly formulated to assist in the development of the individual", although they may prove effective "at the level of social organization that includes the individual".

Peterson says both books predict the notion that chaos and order are "two fundamental elements of reality", and that "people find the means to balance them in the best way possible."

According to Peterson, the difference between the two books is that the first focuses "more on the dangers of excess chaos", while the second is more concerned with "the danger of excessive structure". Peterson says the 12 rules "argue for the merits of a more conservative view of the world" while the Beyond Order "argues for the merits of a more liberal view".

While Peterson was writing the book, his wife was diagnosed with terminal kidney cancer, although he recovered. In addition, drug treatment for his depression led to benzodiazepine dependence for which he was treated with ketamine and an induced coma at Russian and Serbian rehabilitation facilities.

During the COVID-19 epidemic in 2020, her daughter reported that she had contracted COVID-19. In November 2020, shortly after the book was announced, several members of the Canadian department at Penguin Random House protested against the book's publication. At least 70 anonymous message publishers were in favor of publishing "One Couple" on the Variety and Inclusion Committee.

Beyond Order was later released in March 2021.

Jordan Peterson Beyond Order book Review :

After almost dying last year, Jordan Peterson is back with a sequel to his bestselling 12 Rules for Life. Beyond Order Title: 12 more rules for life, packaged as a complement to the first.

Where the 12 rules for life are ordered as "antidote to chaos" (subtitles), this book seeks to "pass" that order. So what's the chaos book? Almost, but not completely.

Beyond order is actually yin from the previous yang. The packaging of the books gives it, as the two have identical cover designs, the first being white and the second being black. Peterson mentions this arrangement in the introductory Overture of his first book, and he calls that first book a work of "ordering policy." But Beyond Order is not so much chaos as balance.

Yes, it has a black cover and it was written during a turbulent time in Peterson's life. It repeatedly emphasizes the need for creative transformation, the need for change when the status quo is corrupt.

This, of course, is not chaos, but the free continuity of the original consciousness and intent of the rules. People can "break the rules morally" but only they "master them first and discipline themselves to understand the necessity of those rules".
In the end, Peterson wants a "balance between conservatism and originality."

He acknowledges that this may be contradictory, but he sees such a balance as the structure of the nature of reality: "These two entities are inextricably interdependent. One cannot exist without the other, although they exist in real excitement."

The chaos in Peterson's worldview remains a villain, as evidenced by his resurrection of the myths of Enuma Hilsa, Osiris and Horace, and even Harry Potter and the Sleeping Beauty. When chaos triumphs over discipline, there is pain, death, and horror.

But the extra layer that adds Beyond Order is that one must be wary of excessive ordering. An unbalanced, uncompromising drive for control will end in torture, and thus more pain and horror.

It is illustrated in a particularly pleasing way by Peter Pan's interpretation of Peter. Peter's character is "the potential itself", but a possibility that refuses to become a reality and "something meaningful, productive, long-term and sustainable". As he is he is still chaotic. But his opposite, Captain Hook, is "the archetypal tyrant king, the pathology of discipline."

Hook is an adult (and with a classical education, at least in the original J. M. Barry version of the story), yet he swallows a clock that is crippled by fear of death, fear of crocodiles. Peterson argues that Peter cannot be precisely "big" because the anti-order model is so unbalanced.

But the solution is not to embrace the chaos, but to embrace the potential conflict that may come in the battle to overcome that chaos. Peterson wants his readers to "deal with whatever stands in your way", which means to suppress chaos through the principle of command (the initial burden of the first book) or "by breaking the rules morally."
