Cafe meetup 9/2: (back to Central Market) Double Crux

Note: We return to Central Market for this meetup.

It’s been a year since last time, so we’re going to use this meetup to practice the Double Crux technique of disagreement resolution. In this technique, you try to find some fact that, if you could be convinced of it, you’d change your mind (or at least would be a significant blow to you view). To make it “double”, you try to make it the same issue of fact for both of you.

To focus on the core activity, we won’t try to get to the point of actually resolving the disagreements, but just get as far as identifying what could potentially resolve them if more information came in.

We’ll start with a list of statements on which you can express agreement or disagreement, and then find pairs of people who fall on opposite ends of the issue.


The meetup is at Central Market, 4001 N. Lamar, in the cafe area. Look for the LW and SSC signs. People start arriving at 1:30 pm, and the main activity will begin at 2:30 pm. Please follow posted guidance and notices in the store.
