Author: Herbert Gintis
Publisher: Princeton : Princeton University Press, [2014] ©2009
Edition/Format:   Print book : English : Revised paperback editionView all editions and formats
Summary:
Game theory cannot fully explain human behaviour and should instead complement other key concepts championed by the behavioral disciplines. Gintis shows that just as game theory without broader social theory is merely technical bravado, so social theory without game theory is a handicapped enterprise.
