內容簡介 哈佛大學臨床心理學家喬登．彼得森教授，繼《生存的12條法則》之後，再追加十二條法則！在前一部著作，彼得森博士幫助百萬讀者在混亂的現代生活中，找到生活秩序、理出一條向前的清晰之路！在此本續作中，彼得森教授加碼提出另外12條生存法則，讓我們在試圖將生活按所想歸位時，不至於在中途被種種困難消耗殆盡。不過，彼得森博士也提醒，混亂的對立面並非停滯不變。當我們在生活各方面產生安全感，其實反而是種警訊。書中，他引導讀者克服追求穩定的慣性，有意識地學習找到新的目標和意義。認知害怕改變的恐懼及焦慮；在混亂與秩序間取得平衡。幫助自己生活中的那條路，更加清晰！The sequel to 12 Rules for Life offers further guidance on the perilous path of modern life. In 12 Rules for Life, clinical psychologist and celebrated professor at Harvard and the University of Toronto Dr. Jordan B. Peterson helped millions of readers impose order on the chaos of their lives. Now, in this bold sequel, Peterson delivers twelve more lifesaving principles for resisting the exhausting toll that our desire to order the world inevitably takes. In a time when the human will increasingly imposes itself over every sphere of life—from our social structures to our emotional states—Peterson warns that too much security is dangerous. What’s more, he offers strategies for overcoming the cultural, scientific, and psychological forces causing us to tend toward tyranny, and teaches us how to rely instead on our instinct to find meaning and purpose, even—and especially—when we find ourselves powerless. While chaos, in excess, threatens us with instability and anxiety, unchecked order can petrify us into submission. Beyond Order provides a call to balance these two fundamental principles of reality itself, and guides us along the straight and narrow path that divides them.
