    Things fall apart, or so we regularly hear these days. Real or impending disorder is one of the key rationalizations given for major decisions today: think austerity economics, the politics of crisis and radical interventions in response to shocks. Self-help books, no longer content to inform us of how to be sufficiently flexible for the demands of roving capital, now instruct us on how to be “anti-fragile”: how to not only survive but thrive in disorder.
