Megan rated it really liked it May 07, An enjoyable book, I really wish I could understand it more fully, but that will come.

Game Theory Evolving: A Problem-Centered Introduction to Modeling Strategic Interaction

And unlike many other game theorists, Gintis herberrt not shy away from agent-based models, which are discussed in various places. Chapter two, especially, which lays out the mathematical foundations of the rational actor model, is in my opinion far too formal and abstract for its position in the book.


Kaisar Khatak rated it it was amazing Mar 31, Second, the content has been thoroughly reordered as compared to the first version, and nearly all chapters have been renamed. We can only guess about the underlying reasons the preface, unfortunately, does not detail differences between the editionsbut I find these choices surprising given the ever-increasing impact of behavioral approaches on economic herbdrt.

Bryce rated it liked it Dec 27, Maximilian LeRoux rated it really liked it Dec 25, The book did humanise the theoryy theory topic and did make it comprehensible to non-mathematicians like me, you have a passing interest in the subject of game theory. Second, the book–recognizing that students learn by doing and that most game theory texts are weak on problems–is organized around problems, and introduces principles hintis practice.


In this problem-oriented introduction to the field, Herbert Gintis exposes students to the techniques and applications of game theory through a wealth of sophisticated and surprisingly fun-to The study of strategic action game theory is moving from a formal science of rational behavior to an evolutionary tool kit for studying behavior in a broad array of social settings. Thanks for telling us about the problem. First, it reflects game theory’s expansion into such areas as fame in teams, networks, the evolution and diffusion of preferences, the connection between biology and economics, artificial life simulations, and experimental economics.

Alex Burns rated it really liked it Dec 08, Solutions to many problems are provided at the end of the book. Mostafa Sahraei rated it it was amazing Jan 28, John rated it really liked it Sep 27, It will prove to be extremely useful in learning game theory, although for many readers it should probably be supplemented with additional instruction or a more traditional straightforward textbook.
