A coinage of fabulously argumentative writer Nassim Nicholas Taleb in Antifragile: Things that Gain from Disorder, to be antifragile is to be neither fragile — breakable, delicate, post-millennial, snowflakey and susceptible to damage by agitation, nor robust (stout, sturdy and impervious to agitation) but strengthened by agitation. Immune systems, callouses, Nietzscheans — these are antifragile.
