Eric R. Weinstein is a managing director of Thiel Capital in San Francisco, founded by Peter Thiel. He is also a research fellow at the Mathematical Institute of Oxford University.
Weinstein speaks and publishes on a variety of topics including, gauge theory, immigration, the market for elite labour, management of financial risk and the incentivizing of risk-taking in science.
Eric is said to have coined the term “intellectual dark web“ during a Sam Harris podcast. However, during a video he released explaining the nomenclature, he repeatedly referred to an unknown ‘we’ who manufactured the term to be antifragile.
