Nassim Taleb helped create one of your Bastiat Free University master's courses.
His book Fooled By Randomness was a best seller and is included in some of your BFU courses, as are some of his shorter works. This book is a great read if you want to explore fallacies that underlie "undisputed facts" we encounter each day.
A Nassim Taleb quote: "My major hobby is teasing people who take themselves & the quality of their knowledge too seriously & those who don’t have the guts to sometimes say: I don’t know...." (You may not be able to change the world but can at least get some entertainment & make a living out of the epistemic arrogance of the human race).
Nassim Taleb has a new book due out next week, The Black Swan. For much of recorded history no one would have believed a black swan possible. Far too often what we believe determines what we "know."
You can pre-order Taleb's The Black Swan right now and not have to remember to pick it up later. One of the secrets of success is to be too early - here is a chance to practice that concept.
