Fallible Ideas Discussion

The Fallible Ideas discussion group is currently active (link) and discusses philosophy and its implications, especially the ideas of Elliot Temple, David Deutsch, Karl Popper and Ayn Rand. The discussion group started in 2013 and this archive goes up to March 2018.

There's a ton of content here. Don't try to read it straight through. Skip parts that don't interest you, skim for parts you like, or search for keywords to find specific topics you want to learn about. This short video tutorial explains the best way to search. Also, text is frequently repeated because people quote what they're replying to. If you remember what a quote says, there's no need to reread it.
