Welcome back to The Amateur Society for a new direction after an extended absence! Fatherhood is fantastic, and it has led me to think about how we should structure our approach here at The Amateur Society. In our first series of 2020 we will model an ongoing philosophical inquiry to demonstrate that everyone can develop the skills necessary to ask meaningful, challenging questions and to dig in. We begin with a handful of aphorisms from Nassim Taleb’s The Bed of Procrustes. This will be our approach for the next several sessions, and we hope you enjoy the free-ranging exploration of many critical ideas. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!
