Podcast: The Amateur Society – The Power Of Anchoring – 06.24.2019

AS06282019

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for another conversation about decision theory! In this episode, the group examines the psychological bias of anchoring and how it impacts our ability to make decisions. We often discuss how worldview ultimately informs our decisions, but along the way there are all sorts of cognitive biases that have a tendency to trip us up. While it is never going to be possible to extricate ourselves entirely from all of these biases, having a better understanding of them does provide some defense. Most importantly, this knowledge challenges us to think more seriously about our decision making and our worldviews. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!

Podcast: The Amateur Society – Free Will – 06.05.2019

2019.06.05

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for a conversation about a critical topic in philosophy and life: free will. The idea of the extent of our freedom is a worldview-driven concept that has been pondered for millennia. However, despite its significance it isn’t a part of common inquiry except in unique circumstances. Are we actually free as it seems? How would we know? What would the consequences be of either conclusion? We hope that you enjoy this stimulating discussion. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!

Podcast: The Amateur Society – Getting Help Making Tough Decisions – 05.06.2019

2019.05.07

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for another discussion about decision making! When do we enlist the help of external resources to make decisions? Should we seek advice and counsel more from open source info and other people? What difficulties may arise from including others in our decision making? This conversation explores many important questions that motivate us to be more thoughtful about our decisions so that we’re less inclined to be on autopilot. We must own the responsibility for our decisions, so we must practice thinking about them clearly. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!

Podcast: The Amateur Society – Reckoning With The Inevitability Of Death – 02.25.2019

2019.02.27

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for a critical discussion about death. We all know intellectually that death is inevitable, but hardly anyone seeks to reckon with the implications of this truth. Death is uncomfortable and even frightening to ponder whether we have been mercifully spared from its immediacy for a time or whether we have been relentlessly exposed to it. It’s no wonder that people try to avoid thinking or speaking of it whenever possible, but it must be reckoned with boldly. Hopefully this episode encourages you to ask additional questions about this overlooked topic. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!
