Schools Proliferating Without Practicioners

Link post

Very in­ter­est­ing post from “The Last Ra­tion­al­ist” dis­cussing how the ra­tio­nal­ist com­mu­nity seems to have been slow to up­date on com­par­a­tive im­prac­ti­cal­ity of for­mal Bayes and on the repli­ca­tion crisis in psy­chol­ogy.

I don’t fully agree with this post—for in­stance, my im­pres­sion is that there is in fact a repli­ca­tion crisis in medicine, which the au­thor seems un­aware of or un­der­states—but I think the key points provide use­ful food for thought.

(Note: this is my opinion as a pri­vate in­di­vi­d­ual, not an offi­cial opinion as a CFAR in­struc­tor or as a mem­ber of any other or­ga­ni­za­tion.)
