For this week’s meetup we’ll be discussing Crucial Considerations, a concept introduced by Nick Bostrom and one of the recommended readings for the upcoming EA Global conference.




Working definitions:

1) A consideration such that, if it were taken into account, it would overturn the conclusions we would otherwise reach about how we should direct our efforts

2) An idea or argument that might plausibly reveal the need for not just some minor course adjustment in our practical endeavors, but a major change of direction or priority
