I’m currently reading Fooled by Randomness by Nassim Nicholas Taleb. After I found his philosophical notebook Opacity, I thought, “I should buy his books.” But I had so much else to read! The thought, though, kept gnawing and gnawing at me. I had to buy one of his books. It called to my soul.
So, I bought it. And I’m enjoying it very much. I like a lot of what this guy says. Perhaps it’s not so much his ideas that attract me (they do!), but his contempt for the same types of people I despise.
[I don’t feel like doing much more than shallow thinking for this particular blog post.]
