Critical uncertainty

I’ve started reading some of George Soros’ lectures given in Budapest after the 2008 financial crisis. A billionaire philanthropist with remarkable influence notes:

“I hope that my ideas will be received in the same spirit of critical thinking in which they are offered”

His first lecture is an open acknowledgement of how much is uncertain when people are involved.

While we aim to provide the best answer, we can still give room for critique and improvement. Recognising that complexity begets more perspectives than we might be willing or able to see.
