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:
- Not-knowing about values that comes from new outcomes.
- Not-knowing about values that comes from new actions.
- Imagining new futures based from not-knowing about values.
- 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.
