  • The first two essays were called A New Kind of Leader” and “How I Wasted My 20s (Pursuing Goals)
  • Next week, in “One Possible Future”, I’ll try to paint a picture of what a values-concerned society might look like.
  • The week after, in “Cracked Foundations”, I’ll cover why the “goals” society isn’t enough to keep Science and Democracy in working order, and doesn’t even work for measuring the success of products or businesses.
  • After that, in “Clouds Hide the Moon”, I’ll discuss what blocks emergence of a value-concerned society; namely, our inarticulacy about our own values. I will show how this inarticulacy is maintained and reinforced.
  • Finally, in sections 6–10, I will sketch some of principles and institutions for a value-concerned society.
