Hungarian President Katalin Novák met Jordan Peterson, Canadian psychologist and best-selling author, Professor Emeritus at the University of Toronto, and his wife Tammy in their home in Toronto on Wednesday.
According to Novák, Peterson “is a liberal thinker in the classical sense, who is repelled by today’s woke ideology and the ambition to create a hegemony of opinion.” “He believes in the freedom of thought and will and in the power of family communities and faith. He also revealed what new book he is working on,” she added in her Facebook post.
President Novák awarded Peterson the Hungarian Order of Merit in June, “in recognition of his outstanding scientific work in the field of clinical psychology, as well as his exceptionally dedicated and influential activities in the defense of creative freedom and the education of youth.”
The Canadian psychologist also held a lecture. “The Sándor Palace is more than an office, it’s a symbolic place that also provides space for thinking, building a broad-minded community that understands each other,” Novák wrote about the event.
Peterson attended the Brain Bar Festival in Hungary in 2019, when he was received by Prime Minister Viktor Orbán.
