I, Space, am going to make a society for learning and discussing rationality at wellington college. This site is to log my plans and experiences and learnings.
Introducing Wellington Rationality Society!
Mondays 17:40-18:40 in Economics 6.
RatSoc is a place for learning how to be a more rational human being — how to systemically attain true beliefs and effectively achieve your goals in the real world. Through exercises, puzzles, reading and discussions, we'll find the answer to questions like:
And many, many others, ranging from psychology, philosophy, economics to logic.
We will be reading sections of Rationality: from AI to Zombies (available free online at readthesequences.com) within the sessions.
Come along, no prior rationality training necessary!
"I ask the fundamental question of rationality: what do you think you know and how do you think you know it?"
