The host has requested RSVPs for this event

This month’s LessWrong meetup will be on when science is and isn't enough. Discussion topics include:

  1. What is science?
  2. Where/why science has triumphed?
  3. Where/why science falls short of optimality?
  4. Pitfalls in communicating scientific knowledge.
  5. What is the relationship between science and engineering?

Here is the reading list for this meetup (possibly to be expanded at the actual meetup). Time during the meetup will be dedicated to reading these pieces, so there’s no need to read them ahead of time.

  1. Faster Than Science [5 mins]
  2. A Failure, But Not Of Prediction [15 mins]

There will be some optional readings that you can engage in if you would like to read the articles ahead of time though.

As always, the meetup is open to anyone who is interested in improving their rationality skills, whether you're a seasoned veteran or a curious beginner. We look forward to seeing you there!
