Embracing Uncertainty and Stress

Antifragility is the ability to thrive under stress, and uncertainty, making it a powerful tool for growth and progress. Rather than trying to eliminate uncertainty, we can embrace it and use it to our advantage.


An antifragile system, person, or society becomes stronger, more resilient, and better prepared for future challenges as a result of experiencing stress and suffering. Cultivating antifragility is a long-term investment that requires sustained effort, including the development of "soft skills" such as flexibility and courage.


Perspectives from different fields such as brain science and psychology support the idea that learning to adapt to stress and adversity can lead to personal growth and development.


The objectives of our research include:

  • Investigating how uncertainty can drive growth
  • Examining how to thrive in disorder and use suffering as a source of strength
  • Exploring ways to not just withstand stress and change, but to also benefit from them
