Thinking about Not-knowing #8: What Results Are Worth

August 17, 2023 at 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm CEST

Join Vaughn Tan in building a better relationship with the not-knowing that surrounds us.

This episode focuses on the fourth category of not-knowing, which is about the relative value attached to particular outcomes.

Not knowing how much particular outcomes are worth is the most under-explored type of not-knowing, despite being the foundation for expected value theory (which drives so much of economic theory and long-termist decision-making).

Not-knowing about values makes it hard to compare desired outcomes and to choose actions. At the same time, not-knowing about values creates space for new ideas of what should be valuable.

Some topics we’ll talk about:

  1. Not-knowing about values that comes from new outcomes.
  2. Not-knowing about values that comes from new actions.
  3. Imagining new futures based from not-knowing about values.
  4. Making strategy when there is not-knowing about values.

This is the 8th episode in an Interintellect series about not-knowing.

Pre-reading: Check back here week of August 14!
Optional (but probably useful!): Check out previous articles on thinking more clearly about not-knowing.
