Fallible Ideas Newsletter

Philosophy and rational analysis. By Elliot Temple.


I’m teaching a Critical Fallibilism course this month. It’s going well. The main topic is Yes or No Philosophy including decisive, binary criticism, IGCs and breakpoints. I’m also connecting these ideas with Theory Of Constraints and Critical Rationalism. Expect course recordings to go on sale in March.

Discussion at is active. The best way to follow it is with an RSS Reader.

Discussion on Discord is active too and includes election discussion.

Feedback on what’s worth including in the highlight videos would be appreciated. What did you particularly like? Did you notice any parts you thought should have been left out? (For any newsletter, you can hit reply and I’ll get your email.)
