Game Theory and the Social Contract - Playing Fair (Vol. 1) by Ken
Binmore, MIT Press, 1994. [see pubisher's
Ken Binmore argues that game theory provides a systematic tool for
investigating ethical matters. His reinterpretation of classical social
contract ideas within a game-theoretic framework generates new insights
into the fundamental questions of social philosophy. He clears the way
for this ambitious endeavor by first focusing on foundational issues --
paying particular attention to the failings of recent attempts to import
game -- theoretic ideas into social and political philosophy. The book
makes game-theoretic ideas more widely accessible to those with only a
limited knowledge of the field. Instructional material is woven into the
narrative, which is illustrated with many simple examples, and the mathematical
content has been reduced to a minimum.
Game Theory and the Social Contract - Just Playing (Vol. 2) by Ken
Binmore, MIT Press, 1998. [see pubisher's
"Ken Binmore's Game Theory and the Social Contract is the most important
work in social philosophy since John Rawls' Theory of Justice. It is highly
original, insightful, and will be a focal point for social theory."
[Brian Skyrms, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy
and Professor of Economics, University of California, Irvine]
Written for an interdisciplinary audience, "Just Playing" offers a panoramic
tour through a range of new and disturbing insights that game theory brings
to anthropology, biology, economics, philosophy, and psychology. It is
essential reading for anyone who thinks it likely that ethics evolved along
with the human species.
