Emmanuel Prados, chercheur à l'INRIA, fait une synthèse claire et complète des connaissances sur le risque d'effondrement. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1dgjIeR5DBY&feature=youtu.be Avons nous à faire à une combinaison passagère de crises liée à une redistribution globale des cartes ou sommes nous face à des phénomènes encore plus profonds comme un effondrement de société ?

Be suspicious of stories

 Like all of us, economist Tyler Cowen loves a good story. But in this intriguing talk, he asks us to step away from thinking of our lives -- and our messy, complicated irrational world -- in terms of a simple narrative.

Pierre Gauthier's curator insight, July 15, 2014 9:46 AM

Anyone who practices mindfulness is very intimately familiar with "the storyteller". What Tyler Cowan talks about in the excellent TEDx talk could be quite upsetting to some people who haven't been deep in their practice. Very good!

Miklos Szilagyi's curator insight, March 23, 2014 3:04 AM

A classic from one of the most interesting therapeuta and thinker, author of Palo Alto Mental Research Institute... I have found it earlier in German on youtube but now it's also with French subtitle... his books are really amazing,  at the time a very new insight how people are thinking...

 

Just to mention some of his books (in English):

- Change

- Language of change

- How real is real

- The invented reality (editor and author)

- Situation is hopeless, but not serious (not the script of the similarly titled film comedy...:-)))

 But what is reality? The more we probe it, the harder it becomes to comprehend. In the eight articles on this page we take a tour of our fundamental understanding of the world around us, starting with an attempt to define reality and ending with the idea that whatever reality is, it isn’t what it seems.

Overcoming Perplexity - Frames of Mind Required for Engaging with Complexity, by Aiden Choles

Max-Neef (1991) defines perplexity as the outcome of a situation for which we cannot recognise a precedent, has kept us in a dead-end alley and barred the road to imaginative, novel and bold situations.

Philippe Vallat's insight:

The frames of mind for dealing with complexity:

- openness

- situational awareness

- and holding a healthy respect for the restraint/action paradox.

 

Very good views on the topic, enjoy the reading!

Rethinking Mental Health: Towards a Holistic Organismic Paradigm (Part 1 of 4)

We find ourselves in very interesting times with regard to our understanding of mental health. We find ever more heated, passionate, and polarized discussions taking place with regard to the so called mental disorders—how or even whether to try to classify them, which factors are generally helpful in recovery vs. which factors are generally harmful, what does “mental disorder” or “mental illness” even mean, and what does “recovery” even mean.

Ironically, the more famous the expert, the less accurate his or her predictions tended to be. The less successful forecasters tended to have one big, beautiful idea that they loved to stretch, sometimes to the breaking point. They tended to be articulate and very persuasive as to why their idea explained everything… they are more entertaining… The media loves them… Experts in demand were more overconfident than their colleagues who eked out existences far from the limelight…”

The Six Stages of Awareness | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

The text below is from a past Crash Course seminar.  It is a very loose adaptation of Elisabeth Kübler-Ross' "Five Stages of Grief."

Often a broad new awareness results in a series of emotional responses that mimic the grief associated with loss.  I call these the Six Stages of Awareness.

Higher Emotional Intelligence Leads to Better Decision-Making

Higher Emotional Intelligence Leads to Better Decision-Making | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it


The anxiety people feel making investment decisions may have more to do with the traffic they dealt with earlier than the potential consequences they face with the investment, but not if the decision-maker has high emotional intelligence a recent study published in Psychological Science suggests. The study shows that understanding the source and relevance of emotions influences how much sway they have over individuals' decision-making and can affect the willingness to take risks.
