In a recorded piece about Rawls I found: "it's hard to look at society witout personal peek" - I can figure out from the context that it means without being biased, but I can't find it anywhere. Has any native speaker heard this?

    Welcome to the forum, thek!

    Are you sure what you heard wasn't "personal pique?" Depending on the context, that might make sense, while "personal peak" makes none.

    From the WR dictionary:

    pique1/pik/v., piqued, piqu•ing, n.
    v.[~ + object]
    • to cause anger in (someone) by an insult or wound to someone's pride:He was piqued by those snide references to his teaching ability.
    • to excite or arouse; provoke:The report piqued my curiosity.
    n.
    • a feeling of irritation or resentment, as from a wound to one's pride:He stormed out of the room in a fit of pique.
