[Question] Questions to ask Will MacAskill about ‘What We Owe The Future’ for 80,000 Hours Podcast (possible new audio intro to longtermism)

This Friday I’m again interviewing William MacAskill, this time just about his upcoming book ‘What We Owe The Future’, for what may become 80,000 Hours’ new audio intro to longtermism.

We’ve got 3 or so hours — what should I ask him?

Previous interviews:

  1. On moral uncertainty, utilitarianism & how to avoid being a moral monster

  2. On the paralysis argument, whether we’re at the hinge of history, & his new priorities

  3. On balancing frugality with ambition, whether you need longtermism, & mental health under pressure
