July Meetup – P*st-Rationality

We will be discussing p*st-rationality — or, warning NSFW: post-rationality — for this next month’s discussion meetup.

Many of our regular attendees have soaked themselves in the Twitter milieu of post-rationality, but there are some background readings below as well. Whether you are rat, rat-adjacent, post-rat, post-post-rat, or you just like to laugh on Twitter, there’s something for everyone at this month’s meetup.

As usual, we encourage you to come whether you’ve done the reading or not. We also encourage you to come regardless of what kind of rat or post-rat you do or don’t identify as.

Also, please feel free to come even if you’re worried it will be awkward, you won’t fit in, or you aren’t the “typical person who comes to a Rationality meetup.” We are welcoming and friendly!
