In this revolutionary book, Elie redefines the components of the technology needed to price and trade derivatives. Most importantly, and drawing on a long tradition of philosophy of the event from Henri Bergson to Gilles Deleuze, to Alain Badiou, and on a recent brand of philosophy of contingency, embodied by the speculative materialism of Quentin Meillassoux, Elie redefines the market itself against the common perceptions of orthodox financial theory, general equilibrium theory and the sociology of finance.http://nttsystem.xsrv.jp/libraries/66/vus-versteckte-spionage-app.php
The Blank Swan: The End of Probability - AbeBooks - Elie Ayache:
This book will change the way that we think about derivatives and approach the market. If anything derivatives should be renamed "contingent claims," where contingency is now absolute and no longer derivative, and the market is just its medium.
The book also establishes the missing link between quantitative modelling no longer dependent on probability theory but on a novel brand of mathematics which Elie calls the "mathematics of price" and the reality of the market. Additional Product Features Dewey Edition.

Would you like to change to the United States site? Elie Ayache. He does what philosophical inquiry has always done: to go the extra mile and look at the world in a deeply philosophical way.
Insightful and insane in equal measures, this book is not an easy read. I wouldn't recommend this for holiday reading on the beach but perhaps for while sitting in front of a log fire with a large Scotch, or probably several.
The Blank Swan. The End of Probability
Paul Wilmott, author of Frequently Asked Questions in Quantitative Finance October 19th was a day of huge change for the global finance industry. On this day the stock market crashed, the Nobel Prize winning Black-Scholes formula failed and volatility smiles were born, and on this day Elie Ayache began his career, on the trading floor of the French Futures and Options Exchange. The result is a reconstruction of the market of contingent claims in the realm of writing and difference instead of identity and delimitation of states.
Both in the philosophical argument and in the writing strategy, I have avoided every naivety in thought and every comforting station, finding the disappearance of the market as the last contingency that it is necessary to think, especially in these days. This is the moment when the book, as a binder, and the market, as a domain, can no longer contain thought and when their non naive recovery requires a total revolution.
One in which the metaphysics of the market becomes the market as metaphysics and the interior of the book becomes the world inverted. Elie Ayache.
