Virtues

Eliezer first talked about ra­tio­nal­ist virtues in the Twelve Virtues of Ra­tion­al­ity:

The first virtue is cu­ri­os­ity. A burn­ing itch to know is higher than a solemn vow to pur­sue truth. To feel the burn­ing itch of cu­ri­os­ity re­quires both that you be ig­no­rant, and that you de­sire to re­lin­quish your ig­no­rance. If in your heart you be­lieve you already know, or if in your heart you do not wish to know, then your ques­tion­ing will be pur­pose­less and your skills with­out di­rec­tion.
