Summary:
This book represents a major contribution to game theory. It offers a new conception of equilibrium in games: strategic equilibrium. This new conception arises from a study of expected utility decision principles, which must be revised to take account of the evidence a choice provides concerning its outcome. The argument for the new principles distinguishes reasons for action from incentives, and draws on

This new conception arises from a study of expected utility decision principles, which must be revised to take account of the evidence a choice provides concerning its outcome. The argument for the new principles distinguishes reasons for action from incentives, and draws on contemporary analyses of counterfactual conditionals.
