"A giant of Mordern thought ... Now the hottest thinker in the world" London Times

Nassim Nicholas Taleb

In detail

As a pioneer of complex financial derivatives, he had a lengthy and successful career as a senior Wall Street trader, before he began his philosophical career as an epistemologist of chance, and focused on the development of his "black swan theory" of unexpected rare events. A polymath, he taught in fields so far apart as the psychology of uncertainty and human error, and the pricing of financial derivatives and has been called a "philosopher-trader-statistician-psychologist". He transformed his interests into three successful careers - as a man of letters, a businessman-trader-risk manager, and a university professor.
