Being a Philosopher

In a brilliant article written for GQ by Will Self, Nassim Nicholas Taleb is described as "a genuinely significant philosopher; and by this I mean someone who is able to change the way we view the structure of the world through the strength, originality and veracity of his thoughts alone."

There is really no other kind of philosophy that matters. The philosophy that matters is the kind that induces change to existing structures of all kind. This well-written article gives us glimpse of the life and mind of this brilliant philosopher, derivatives trader, and best-selling author.
