The Black Swan

5.00

A Black Swan event is both unpredictable and extraordinary. Nassim Nicholas Taleb discusses how we perceive the world naïvely through false predictions and narrative fallacy, quantifying things to comprehend them. We neglect to consider the unforeseeable and are at a loss regarding Black Swans. Taleb examines why Black Swans are shocking to us, and how to be more aware and better cope with them.

“The problem lay not in the nature of events, but in the way we perceive them.”
