šŸ€Wellington Rationality Society

2021-11-04

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 ā€” 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: 

  • What is the point of trying to believe things that are true?
  • How can I recognise when I'm lying to myself?
  • How do I see through confusion and answer mysterious questions?

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?"
