By Elie Ayache
In The Medium of Contingency Elie Ayache builds upon his ground-breaking booklet The clean Swan, in exploring the intersection of philosophy and finance, introducing new notions of expense and marketplace. Inverting the bought view, he now sees a production of topic in either the marketplace and its metaphysics, instead of natural speculation.
as soon as famous because the right medium of contingency and disassociated from the probabilistic and statistical instruments characteristically used to version it, the industry will be notion as 'real', in a brand new feel of fact resembling the recent feel of topic. To deliver this new and unique viewpoint, The Medium of Contingency builds on likelihood idea as first formalized via von Mises and Kolmogorov, and later revisited by means of Shafer and Vovk. It utilises the author's broad event in derivatives pricing expertise and software program, in addition to his paintings within the philosophy of contingency and contingent claims, to suggest a brand new philosophical interpretation of Brownian movement and of the Black-Scholes-Merton formulation. Then it completes the overturning of the conventional view of the industry by way of arguing that there can be no distinction, finally, among an underlying asset and the by-product written on it.
This e-book doesn't target to alter the marketplace however the manner we needs to examine it. it's the author's conviction that there will be no philosophy of the marketplace, and therefore no taking into account it, and not using a philosophy of contingent claims and of by-product pricing. The booklet offers the lacking piece, which the philosophy of chance can't supply on my own. Its scope, besides the fact that, extends past the stern critique of economic arithmetic, because it additionally, and maybe most significantly, supplies the author's definitive therapy of the philosophically well known and lately a lot mentioned thought of contingency.

Simply, let us make it so that the ‘random generator’ is of the same nature and subsists in the same homogeneous medium as the probabilities supposed to pertain to it. Our speculation is that price and the market can be implicitly redefined as the solution of this ‘fixed-point’ problem – which is, in essence, an anti-fixed-point problem; it is a full aleatory point (as Deleuze would say8 ) or turning the impossibility of possibility into positive matter. The game of dice or roulette is not really a perfect game.
The limit of breaking even in a statistical series, or in a run of some kind, is to break even by inversion into the market. The market occupies and fills both ends. The place is created in between: no gambling, but a new sense of staying or dwelling or, rather, frequenting. One doesn’t dwell in a gambling place or live in it; one frequents it. The same change of the order of time is needed in order to understand how frequenting this place makes sense. We need to diverge, right from the heart of the argument of local dynamic replication, right from the heart of the stochastic integral (which, in a remarkable inversion of the law of large numbers and thanks to the infinity that is contained in a continuity, can now – must now – precede the stochastic differential), right from the inceptive event of post-BSM derivatives markets, into a direction that is radically alternative to statistics.
To be at one with the formalism, to enter the formalism, the contingent claim should have had its own trading process independently given; and this is what we are complaining about. We are complaining that while there is nothing to prevent a separate asset from trading side by side with the first one and from having the summary of its trading equally given as a stochastic process, a contingent claim written on the first asset cannot be represented to trade formally – provided, that is, we wish that the relation between the underlying and the contingent claim overlying it be represented.
