Negative Capability - a Powerful Tool to Navigate Ambiguity
Last year, my EMC peers and I delivered two sessions for our INSEAD alumni community where we explored the concept of negative capability. This idea was introduced by John Keats in 1817. He described it as a state in which a person is ‘capable of being in uncertainties, mysteries, doubts, without any irritable reaching after fact and reason’. It is a relevant and powerful skill - especially in a current context.
