Revision as of 06:59, 10 October 2013

LessWrong is a community blog devoted to refining the art of human rationality. The many thousands of posts however, are difficult to get into, and can feel quite overwhelming. This is my first attempt at an introductory list, as I do not think that there is a good equivalent set. This guide, however, is probably only useful to someone who has a goal of getting into LessWrong - perhaps, someone who has read HpMoR and decided they need to be a bit more like Harry - because the opening series of posts can be a little heavy-going.

Before reading the posts though, I've added a list of talks. These are brilliant, light, and interesting talks about the sorts of content below, and these are probably the best place to start learning about rationality and LessWrong. If you'd like a few posts that don't require lots of adding though, I'd recommend picking some of these posts, and this is also an interesting example of LessWrong-style Rationality in action.

One of the main problems that I had, when I started reading the core archives of LessWrong, was that I didn't see how a lot of the ideas fit together, or where they were heading, which is one of the main reasons that I've written this intro. Once you've read all of this, if you're were to continue, you'd start reading through the sequences, and you'd instantly be able to see how it all fits together.

Suggestions for reading rate: For the introductory section, read at whatever rate you find comfortable. Forcing yourself to read isn't going to make the information seem interesting to you, and some of them are long (especially the second one). Once you reach the Primers and the Front Kick section, perhaps read one or two per day to let them sink in. That's just one person's advice, do it differently as it suits, make sure to process them fully and enjoy :-)
