Nonzero: The Logic of Human Destiny
Nonzero: The Logic of Human Destiny
von Robert Wright
  Gebundene Ausgabe

5.0 von 5 Sternen A subtle mechanism for a sweeping trend, 4. Mai 2000
This is a fantastic book. Robert Wright's application of game theory to broad trends in biological and social evolution - growing complexity and expanding scope - proposes a mechanism that drives those trends. While his data is admittedly not wholly experimental, he does an excellent job of synthesizing a new perspective from the fragments of solid evidence that do exist. The book raises questions about the costs and benefits of social power, providing the author's own conclusions without preventing the reader from forming her own conclusions. Readers interested in political globalization, social justice, and biological evolution will all find an equally refreshing perspective on their topic of interest. (A note: This book is an excellent companion to Guns, Germs, and Steel by Jared Diamond. I highly recommend reading them one after the other.)
