The Logic of Risk


Hi there, welcome to the webpage of the Logic of Risk, the brand new “MOOC” I am preparing for you thanks to my TU Delft Education Fellowship.

Each class will consist of a video focusing on a specific aspect of risk theory, reading materials and, from time to time, some simple exercise for you to solve, and whose solution will appear online with some delay.
All videos will also be available on Youtube, for you to share and embed. You can reach the channel on

My aim is to approach risk theory in a simple and - I hope - funny way. I will try to offer you something unusual, in the sense that we will discuss risk from a logical, philosophical, mathematical and applied point of view. A portmanteau course on risk!
We will address questions like: What is risk? Is risk something subjective or objective? Can we always assess risk? What are extreme risks? What is a risk measure? How can we use it?
We will discuss examples from different fields of science and life, from finance to physics, from engineering to medicine.
I hope to see you soon on these pages.

The course will start in Spring 2019.

Are you ready to take the risk?
