4-hour Ideology Calibration Session


4 per session - Virtual OK - Posted Feb 15, 2017

I will attempt to resolve all of our ideological disagreements. I will start by establishing a common framework on the methods for resolving disagreements, including all the reasons that disagreements exist, how to arbitrate the burden of proof, which kinds of arguments are fundamentally pointless to make, the styles of communication which are most and least conducive to agreement, and more, all of which I am also prepared to defend. I practice fairness as I preach it: I will weigh the pros and cons of every position, and I will not refuse discussion on the basis of particular views or sets thereof. I welcome those with fringe and unpopular positions. 4 hours might seem like a lot, but once you get invested in a particular disagreement with someone whom you can reliably solve it with, the time flies real quick.

Training & Qualifications

I am educated in philosophy (esp. philosophy of justification and philosophy of science), rhetoric, LessWrong rationalism, and I just argue and think about arguing (or as I formally call it, ideological calibration) a lot. It's an obsession I've had since I was about 13.

Availability & Preferences

In the daytime.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!
