The word's roots mean "caused by physician"; I think it's rather obscurantist in Taleb's use of it more generally.
We already have sayings like "hinder rather than help" (actually, in Japanese this can be expressed concisely as Ďז kaette jama. And the Anglosphere uses lots of not-quite-it phrases in these situations like de trop, "superfluous", "adverse").
Taleb is a nut. An amusing nut. But a nut nonetheless.
