The Motivation Series

This resource is out of date. We strongly recommend the EA Handbook instead.

The Motivation Series introduces readers to effective altruism by presenting summaries of key concepts and sharing classic articles from a variety of authors.

This collection of posts explores some of the ideas that motivate people to do as much good as they can, and how they apply across the causes and concerns of the EA movement.

You can learn more about the project and its goals here.
