    Alternative Education Options

    I’ve started to notice more and more private education companies being founded that offer alternatives to the established education system. So far I know of the following: The UnCollege Gap Year: “A 12-month skills-building regimen designed to equip young adults to succeed in the 21st century.” Praxis: “An intensive 10-month program for entrepreneurial young people who want real-world career experience and the best of online education all in one.” Exosphere‘s Entrepreneurship Boot Camps: “An 8-week program at Exosphere’s headquarters in Chile for people who are committed to setting their lives on a new course, combining technical skill acquisition, real business practice, and deep philosophical and intellectual reflection.” I myself work at Exosphere and we’re noticing how more and more people become interested in these alternative programs. What other options are out there that I’m missing?

Love, Hate, and the State: An Introduction to Emotions, Punishment, and Social Change Session 2: Holding Responsible and Reactive Attitudes

A large subset of moral psychology deals with holding other people responsible for their actions, thoughts, and feelings — whether this means blaming them externally or holding a certain feeling towards them internally. This session explores how certain emotions — our “reactive attitudes” — can be used to hold other people responsible for their actions.
