WHERE: Lindstedtsvägen 3, room 1537, SE-114 28 Stockholm, Sverige

Double crux is a hip rationality tool. It's a structured argument technique for reaching consensus from an initial disagreement. For a belief A, a "crux" is a belief B that is crucial to belief in A. Participants start with some disagreement and find a new disagreement that they both view as a crux.

We'll practice this as a group to see how it works, then split into pairs and practice more. Bring your controversial opinions, your epistemic humility, and your good faith arguing hat.
