Dr Peterson is a clinical psychologist and Professor of Psychology who has gained name recognition worldwide for his acute social and political observations, defense of free speech, and the highly analytical way he approaches life and the myriad of problems, neurosis, and trials and tribulations that come along with it. His publicly uploaded video lectures on psychology have gained a cult following as his rise in the public sphere as grown. 

The End of Evangelion, a 1997 Film depicting the final events taking place towards the end of the Neon Genesis Evangelion anime series, is a deep, textural work that harks back to many religious, spiritual, psychological, and mythological concepts that Dr Peterson has both previously taught, and has studied in. Peterson is a fan of, and has studied, the works of masters such as Nietzsche, Jung, and Freud - all of whom can be found within the confines of Neon Genesis Evangelion (NGE). Add to this, the spare variety of the many other highly conceptual and talented influences the series takes inspiration from: Schopenhauer, Søren Kierkegaard, The Dead Sea Scrolls, Jewish Mysticism, The Book of Genesis, and many more - that's just scratching the surface. 

By tasking Dr Peterson with watching this film, comprehending it, analyzing it and then explaining the depths and conceptual levels it heads towards within that of a single lecture (or video lecture): modern-day society and film/art/anime culture will receive an overwhelmingly unique gift, in that of an incredibly knowledgable and intellectually gifted mind - one that's already well-versed in a lot of the subject matter at hand - breaking down and coherently explaining a cult classic film (which, must be added, is widely renown for being an incredibly difficult movie for most people to watch and understand the meaning of it all). 

One hour of Dr Peterson's work could go towards furthering the legacy of the well-written, thematically deep, and comprehensive visual artistry that is Evangelion.
