Conversations I Wish I Had

Risks and statistics

Amazing quote: “Even this behaviour, this calculation of the risk of a thing has a cultural component and has a sociality inherent within it. This behaviour is constructed, lived and expressed within our own cultural context and so there exists a cultural inflection in what we are able to and choose to risk. The calculation of a risk and the interpretation of this information and the way in which we determine its meaning in our lives resides within culture. I learn about risk, about danger, about safety and about my sense of invulnerability through the life and the relationships that I hold with the people around me.”
