This blog is part of the rationalist community. The general interest links below are fully general interest, and require no knowledge of or interest in rationality.
What is rationality? This post is one good answer. It is believing, and updating on evidence, so as to systematically improve the correspondence between your map and the territory, and using that map to achieve your values.
To me, a rationalist is someone who highly values, and invests in, this process and the art thereof, both in themselves and others.
This blog strives to embody that way of thinking. If you are interested in the way of thinking you saw in the guide, and want to see or explore more of it, this blog might be for you.
The rest of this post organizes what this blog has produced over the years, starting with highlighting the best posts of general or economic interest.
If you’re interested in getting involved in the community, especially in New York City, leave a comment with information on how to reach you, preferably email.
