A Tenet From Taleb


A quick Sunday reflection from Nassim Taleb in "Antifragile":
"...let me express my rule as follows: what Mother Nature does is rigorous until proven otherwise; what humans and science do is flawed until proven otherwise."

[...recently finished reading Taleb's 2012 "Antifragile" and enjoyed it even more than his prior "The Black Swan" and "Fooled By Randomness". The last third of the irascible volume is especially good. Recommended.]
