Peterson is a controversial Canadian academic that Wikipedia describes:

He emphasizes that the state should halt funding to faculties and 
courses he describes as neo-Marxist, and advises students to avoid 
disciplines like women's studies, ethnic studies and racial studies, as 
well other fields of study he believes are "corrupted" by the ideology 
such as sociology, anthropology and English literature.[54][55] He 
states that these fields, under the pretense of academic inquiry, 
propagate unscientific methods, fraudulent peer-review processes for 
academic journals, publications that garner zero citations,[56] 
cult-like behavior,[54] safe-spaces,[57] and radical left-wing political 
activism for students.[46] Peterson has proposed launching a website 
which uses AI to identify and showcase the amount of ideologization in 
specific courses. He announced in November 2017 that he had temporarily 
postponed the project as "it might add excessively to current 
polarization".[58][59]
