Scott Alexander is back!

The best blogger under the Sun—Scott Alexander—is back after a short hiatus. His new blog is called Astral Codex Ten and hosted on Substack.

Scott is a blogger like no other. He covers a wide range of topics, so it’s actually very hard to describe the content. It’s best if you just dive in and start reading. Apart from eye-opening insights, he also had measurable impact on my life. I now mostly ignore news, politics or the latest online outrage. I also partly attribute my improved health to Scott.

To help you start reading his works, many people have compiled their short lists.

Apart from the popular posts, I’m especially fond of his (loose) series on Bayesian reasoning and predictive processing in the brain, so here comes a list that other people missed.
