What is Antifragile?

     Antifragile: Things That Benefit from Chaos is a book written by the Lebanese essayist and researcher based in the United States of America, Nassim Nicolas Taleb, whose original in English was published in 2012. Taleb complements the theme of his previous works proclaims uncertainty as something present and desirable. The author argues that by learning the antifragility mechanisms, the main concept of the book, better decisions can be made without the illusion of being able to predict the next big thing.

     Antifragility, a neologism proposed by Taleb, would be the exact opposite of fragility, complete with resilience or robustness. The resilient resists shocks and weather and stays the same, the antifragile looks better. This property would be behind many things that have changed over time: from ideas to the very existence of human beings as a species.
