I've been trying to take some of the important bits of some of the ideas I've generally come to understand, and to get them expressed in some way that other people would want to view or hear them, and to learn them. "Rationality Matters" is my first serious attempt - it has its good points, and its points that I could have done better, both of which I'm learning from for the future.

Oh, yes, and L. Freakin' Neil Smith, noted libertarian SF authour, plugged it on his newsletter.

uh wow... Everything in that first link looks like it's way over my head. It would take me a long time to understand those topics. Some of them seem interesting but none of them were familiar. I'll have to pass on it. Sorry.

A good starter piece is "Twelve Virtues of Rationality" at [link] .

Another good starter is, of all things, an alt-universe Harry Potter fanfic where alt-Harry was raised by a professor and steeped in this sort of thing - the first ten chapters form a decent mini-story in themselves, so if you decide you don't like it by the time you finish that one, then the end of chapter ten makes a good stopping place. It's at [link] .
