In collaborating with others, I aim to achieve epistemic rigor while keeping things low-key and easygoing. I expect I can be helpful to people interested in the following topics.
Question substitutions and question buckets: noticing the questions that you’re really answering when deciding what to do or believe, and how those questions are grouped together.
Navigating disagreements with others.
Using meditation practice as an aid to rationality. I have recently been questing on this, and I would love to share my current insights and learn more with you.
I’m a university professor and can help people approach academia from a rationalist’s perspective. I have a background in philosophical decision theory but in recent years I’ve replaced much of the syllabus with goal factoring, internal and external double crux, and murphyjitsu.
