Author Introduction

나심 니콜라스 탈레브(지은이)

‘세상에서 가장 유명한 사상가’, ‘월가의 현자’로 묘사되는 나심 탈레브는 현 시대 가장 주목받는 논객으로 꼽힌다. 1960년 레바논에서 태어났으며, 펜실베니아대학교 와튼스쿨에서 경영학 석사를 취득한 후 프랑스 파리 제9대학에서 금융공학 박사학위를 받았다. 이후 21년간 월가의 파생상품 트레이더·위기관리 전문가로 일해오다 확률을 공부하기 시작하며 확률 이론을 통해 철학, 수학, 그리고 세상의 문제들을 해석하게 되었다. 2007년 철학 에세이스트로 전향하여 《블랙 스완》(The Black Swan)을 시작으로 《인세르토》(incerto· 라틴어로 ‘불확실성’을 의미함) 시리즈를 통해 운, 불확실성, 가능성에 관한 철학적이면서도 실질적인 문제 현상들을 다룬 글을 써왔다. 25년간 집필해온 이 시리즈는 전 세계 36개국에 번역·출간되었으며, 다섯 권 모두 화제의 밀리언셀러가 되었다. 현재 뉴욕대학교 폴리테크닉연구소의 리스크공학 특훈교수로, 자신의 연구와 실험을 독자적으로 진행하고 있다. 그의 연구는 불투명성 하에서의 의사결정과 확률의 수학적ㆍ철학적 문제, 다시 말해서 ‘우리가 이해할 수 없는 세상에서 무엇을 할 것인가’에 초점을 맞추고 있다. 특히 인간이 예기치 못한 사건을 이해하고 극복해내는 방식에 대한 독창적이고 대담한 관점을 제시했다. 일찍이 ‘스킨 인 더 게임’이라는 개념을 강조해온 그는 이 책을 통해 궁극적으로 얘기하고자 했던 ‘책임이라는 것은 리스크 관리의 기본이면서, 우리 사회 모든 측면에서 진지하게 다루어져야 하는 가치’라는 메시지를 전한다. 그 외 저서로는 《행운에 속지 마라》(Fooled by Randomness), 《안티프래질》(Antifragile), 《블랙 스완과 함께 가라》(The Bed of Procrustes) 등이 있다.
