In recent years game theory has swept through all of the social sciences. Its practitioners have great designs for it, claiming that it offers an opportunity to unify the social sciences and that it it the natural foundation of a rational theory of society. Game Theory is for those who are intrigued but baffled by these claims, and daunted by the technical demands of most introductions to the subject. Requiring no more than simple arithmetic, the book: * Traces the origins of Game Theory and its philosophical premises * Looks at its implications for the theory of bargaining and social contract theory * Gives a detailed exposition of all of the major 'games' including the famous 'prisoner's dilemma' * Analyses cooperative, non cooperative, repeated, evolutionary and experimental games

Game theory now provides the theoretical underpinning for most areas of economics. Moreover, it has spread fast in other disciplines, energised by claims that it represents an opportunity to unify the social sciences, to found a rational theory of society on a common bedrock of methodological individualism. The speed of these developments has been remarkable and they have constituted something of a revolution. But the technical demands of the subject often discourage the readers most likely to benefit from engaging with it. This second edition of Shaun Hargreaves-Heap and Yanis Varoufakis's classic text strips away the mystique and lets the reader make up his or her own mind. It combines the thoroughness of a textbook with the critical edge of the first edition as it: explains clearly all the major concepts (e.g. the various forms of Nash's equilibrium, bargaining solutions), as well as their philosophical bearings (e.g. rationality, knowledge, social agency); introduces new, exciting areas of research (e.g. psychological, experimental and evolutionary game theory), which it blends carefully with traditional games (e.g. the prisoner's dilemma, hawk-dove); offers many problems at th

5.0 von 5 Sternen Spieltheorie und ihre Bedeutung 19. Februar 2008
Von GK
Von den vielen Spieltheoriebüchern im Markt unterscheidet sich dieses von den anderen dadurch, dass es auch auf die praktische Bedeutung der darin behandelten Modelle kritisch eingeht. Die erste Auflage war allerdings nicht sehr sorgfältig gemacht. Das hat sich in der zweiten Auflage verbessert.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best critical introduction to game theory, for skeptics 24. September 2004
Von nyc_economist - Veröffentlicht auf
This is an excellent book. An introduction to game theory for those who approach the field with some skepticism. The book gives you all the important essential elements of non-cooperative and evolutionary game theory but with a much deeper emphasis on understanding its essential methodological and philosophical underpinnings yet without too much formalism. The authors do a superb job of introducing the topics via a tour of important moral, political, and philosophical ideas and debates mentioning Marx, Smith, Hobbes, Habermas, Hume, Locke and others. The book takes several detours to offer useful expositions of terms and debates such as methodological individualism, common knowledge, equilibrium, learning, morality, norms, etc. I'd recommend this book for two types of people: (1) those who plan to read just one book about game theory (because you don't think it's your cup of tea); and (2) those who plan on learning game theory rigorously (so that you can get a picture of the forest before getting lost in the trees).

This is not just one of my favorite books amongst the several books that I have read on game theory and mechanism design, but also one of the most thumbed book in my entire book collection.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good for application to social sciences; bad for introduction 5. Februar 2008
Von WhyTD360 - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The second edition of this book has the benefit of significant improvements on the first edition. The first was criticized for being incorrect at times; the second book is revised and improved. Generally, the book gives a detailed examination of game theory including all the essential elements. Its applications to the moral, political, and philosophic ideas are well developed and extremely interesting. "The book takes several detours to offer useful expositions of terms and debates such as methodological individualism, common knowledge, equilibrium, learning, morality, norms, etc." as the last review said. These detours prove worthwhile.

The book is difficult to follow and poorly organized, in my opinion. It takes significant work to find the essential ideas and suffers from a lack of "introduction". For those unfamiliar with game theory there are many introductory texts that give a better presentation of the basic ideas without having to work as hard. One of these I find particularly helpful is available online (I had found it for free): Game Theory by Turocy and von Stengel which was used as the introductory survey for the Encyclopedia of Information and Systems. Lawyers may find a short pamphlet produced by Kaplow and Shavell "Decision analysis, Game theory, and Information" quite a useful and practical introduction. The advantage of these texts is their length; both can be read within an couple of hours. Also, both of these provide a bibliography for further reading. For the mathematically inclined, the comprehensive treatment by Fudenberg and Tirole, Game Theory, is a classic for a reason.

This book is a worthwhile text and can spark significant thought and suggest great research; however, I fear it could scare too many off as an introduction to the (amazing) world of games.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Game Theory in its entirety 14. September 2011
Von Matthew Dovell - Veröffentlicht auf
This is some pretty deep material but the pace of it is moderate.

Some of the topics discussed are the following: CKR - Common Knowledge of Rationality, CAB Consistent alignment of beliefs, Prisoners Dilemma and of course the Nash Equilibrium.

John Von Neumann's Minimax theorem is interesting because it reminds me of the scorched earth policies that sometimes erupt during war. Interestingly enough there is also a bit of Adam Smith's materials in here and how his theories apply and are questioned with game theory. The games of Stag Hunt and Hawk & Dove help illustrate the points made within the book. What I like about the book is it is not using the title as a teaser but it does not head straight into terminology without defining it and without giving examples.

If you have any interest in game theory then this is without question the book to get.
