Possibilistic Judgment

Worst Cases, coverSometimes, putting a name to a thing is an essential precondition to making sense of it. Dr. Lee Clarke has done that with a branch of risk analysis that we unthinkingly subsume under common sense but then fail to apply when confronted with spurious probabilistic assessments. To put it simply: possibilistic outcomes are more "normal" than not. Lee's latest book, Worst Cases: Terror and Catastrophe in the Popular Imagination, explains. It was kind of Lee to take the time and I'm very pleased to have had a chance to talk with him. Total runtime forty one minutes. Enjoy!
