Discussion article for the meetup : Meetup, Champaign IL,

WHEN: 14 November 2012 07:00:00PM (-0600)

WHERE: Cafe Paradiso, 801 South Lincoln Avenue Urbana, IL 61801

Let's get together on Wednesday the 14th of November at 7pm at Cafe Paradiso.

Last time we talked about wanting to discuss specific topics at the meetings, and we decided that we're going to start with Consequentialism.

So try to read a little bit about it before next time. Possibilities include:

Also, think about any topics you'd be interested in eventually presenting to the rest of us. You don't need to be an expert: just interested. It can be LW related or not.

See you then.

Rather than consulting Wikipedia, the SEP article on consequentialism is probably the best place to start for an overview.

Also, I suggest you read Torture vs Dust Specks. I found it to be very troubling, and would love to talk about it at the meeting.
