The Black Swan

The Black Swan, by Nassim Nicholas Taleb. Revised edition, Penguin Group, New York, 2010, 379 pp. This book is about the profound subjects of thinking, knowing, understanding, and then acting (or just as often, refraining from acting) on understanding.

Uncle Sam, May I?

The US elections this past November 6 were dominated by a close presidential race whose partisans, if not the candidates themselves, seemed to entertain mutually hostile visions of how government should proceed into the future. As is the American custom, however, myriad issues and candidates went before the electorate under the guise of “local” issues…

“‘Circumstantial evidence is a very tricky thing,’ answered Holmes thoughtfully; ‘it may seem to point very straight to one thing, but if you shift your own point of view a little, you may find it pointing in an equally uncompromising manner to something entirely different. It must be confessed, however, that the case looks exceedingly…

They all said it, didn’t they? Or all of those testifying under oath anyway, no? Or nobody said there weren’t any, did they? Certainly not under oath, eh? The weight of testimonial evidence in support of the existence and use of gas chambers in German wartime concentration camps seems to be as overwhelming as it…

The Number of Victims of Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp (1936-1945)
