Rationality is about the science of reasoning, and acting effectively to meet your goals. This week's workshop is on Community Engagement, and will be taught by Gleb Tsipursky, a professor of history at OSU.
Most of our activities in Rationality focus on improving our own thinking. This workshop broadens our lens to consider how the ideas of rationality can be applied fruitfully to analyze and improve our communities. We will look at three levels of our community: our local, everyday communities; our economic system; and our political system. Our goal will be to come away with a broadened understanding of some of the irrationalities in our communities and some ideas for what we can do to help improve the situation.
Parental Warning: We are a very casual group. There is often swearing.
