Anti-Fragile, written by Plutonic Capricorn Nassim Nicholas Taleb, is the best primer for Pluto in Capricorn philosophy. It’s a very now book.
Anti-Fragile talks of a state beyond resilience. Of being not just able to withstand change but to brazenly thrive though it. As the Pluto in Capricorn economy is going to be bringing it with massive geopoltical shifts all the way through up until 2024, we need this.
Here is the blurb – tell me Mr. Taleb is not totally tapping Pluto.
Nassim Nicholas Taleb, the bestselling author of The Black Swan and one of the foremost thinkers of our time, reveals how to thrive in an uncertain world.
Just as human bones get stronger when subjected to stress and tension, many things in life benefit from stress, disorder, volatility, and turmoil. What Taleb has identified and calls antifragile are things that not only gain from chaos but need it in order to survive and flourish.
Things That Not Only Gain From Chaos But Need It To Survive And Flourish
In The Black Swan, Taleb showed us that highly improbable and unpredictable events underlie almost everything about our world. Here Taleb stands uncertainty on its head, making it desirable, even necessary. The antifragile is beyond the resilient or robust. The resilient resists shocks and stays the same; the antifragile gets better and better.
What’s more, the antifragile is immune to prediction errors and protected from adverse events.
Why is the city-state better than the nation-state, why is debt bad for you, and why is what we call “efficient” not efficient at all? And why do government responses and social policies protect the strong and hurt the weak? Why should you write your resignation letter before starting on the job? How did the sinking of the Titanic save lives? The book spans innovation by trial and error, life decisions, politics, urban planning, war, personal finance, economic systems and medicine, drawing on modern street wisdom and ancient sources.
Antifragile is a blueprint for living in a Black Swan world.
Erudite, witty, and iconoclastic, Taleb’s message is revolutionary: the antifragile, and only the antifragile, will make it.
He’s wordy and a show-off. Taleb has Mercury conjunct Mars and Jupiter in Sagittarius. But it is still one of the best books for a grip on the most advantageous Pluto in Capricorn philosophy.
