"I believe combating unreason with anything other than reason is a first step towards bigotry."


I'm a 22 year old Master student in Linguistics.

And I'm an informal but no less dedicated (in fact, a bit more so) apprentice in the complicated but worthwhile craft of knowing how not to be wrong. This is what led me here.

I'm a LessWrong lurker, and will occasionally link there for further reading. In my opinion, LessWrong should be basic reading for anyone interested in rationalism and rationality. It has many valuable lessons to teach.

Currently I'm spending my time here on feeling ambivalent about RationalWiki's snark policies, and looking for articles where I can make unequivocal contributions.
