Moral calculations : game theory, logic, and human frailty by László Mérő( Book )

18 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in English and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher description: Are people ever rational? Consider this: You auction off a one-dollar bill to the highest bidder, but you set the rules so that the second highest bidder also has to pay the amount of his last bid, even though he gets nothing. Would people ever enter such an auction? Not only do they, but according to Martin Shubik, the game's inventor, the average winning bid (for a dollar, remember) is $3.40. Many winners report that they bid so high only because their opponent "went completely crazy." This game lies at the intersection of three subjects of eternal fascination: human psychology, morality, and John von Neumann's game theory. Hungarian game-theorist Laszlo Mero introduces us to the basics of game theory, including such concepts as zero-sum games, Prisoner's Dilemma and the origins of altruism; shows how game theory is applicable to fields ranging from physics to politics; and explores the role of rational thinking in the context of many different kinds of thinking. This fascinating, urbane book will interest everyone who wonders what mathematics can tell us about the human condition
Ways of thinking : the limits of rational thought and artificial intelligence by László Mérő( Book )

10 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book goes right into the the causes and reasons of the diversity of ways of thinking. It is about the tricks of how our thinking works and about the efforts and failures of artificial intelligence. It discusses what can and cannot be expected of `intelligent' computers, and provides an insight into the deeper layers of the mechanism of our thinking.-An enjoyable piece of reading, this thought-provoking book is also an exciting mental adventure for those with little or no computer competence at all

Les aléas de la raison : de la théorie des jeux à la psychologie by László Mérő( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in French and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce livre a pour thème la pensée rationnelle et développe la thèse que, pour l'essentiel, la pensée humaine n'est pas rationnelle, y compris dans la résolution de problèmes où les outils de la logique pure seraient les plus adaptés. Bien que contenant des éléments pouvant faire l'objet d'un cours universitaire, il se veut un essai écrit pour le lecteur à l'esprit curieux et destiné à provoquer débats et nouvelles approches
