Julia Galef

Julia Galef joined us on April 7 for a fascinating, members-only discussion on why embracing a scout’s mindset, one that champions curiosity and truth-seeking over knee jerk reactions, will give us the tools we need to make smarter decisions. 


Julia Galef is the co-founder of the Center for Applied Rationality, host of the popular podcast Rationally Speaking, and the author of The Scout Mindset: Why Some People See Things Clearly and Others Don't. Her Munk Dialogue on how to train ourselves to have a ‘scout’ mindset took place on April 7.

This event is available to Munk Members only. Membership is free. Visit our Membership page here to explore our membership options and privileges. If you are already a member, log on using your membership credentials to view the Dialogue video.
