Popper's Best

Starting off on a Popper's Best Compilation from the Fallible Ideas reading list here: https://fallibleideas.com/books

Will share stuff as I read. So far I've read Beginning of Infinity and about half of Fabric of Reality. I've also listened to and watched every DD thing I could find, including the physics videos which I didn't understand but found fascinating anyway (like the one arguing against the necessity of probability in physics).

If anyone has any DD links for me to read or listen to/watch, please do share. I'll be going through older stuff from archived discussion groups and Setting The World to Rights and quoting it here as I learn too.

I suggest finishing FoR ch. 1, 3-4, 7-8 before reading Popper.

#14786 Will do.


> We know that any protocol for dealing with conflicting opinions that refers to the attributes of the source rather than the content of each opinion, is anti-rational. The conventional ‘mommy knows best’ rule is one such. So is any protocol that depends for its action on one party being physically stronger than the other. A rational decision-making procedure has the property that its outcomes are independent of the participants' status and power; so a rational family is one whose behaviour would be essentially unchanged if the tables were miraculously turned and the children had all the legal rights, economic power and physical strength on their side.

What are your questions about *The Goal*? Criticisms? Discussion tree with the stuff you learned?
