Games, Competition, and Play
Dreamed up in the heat of the Cold War, game theory has encouraged generations of strategists in politics, law, the military, and academia to see conflicts as games with rules, players, choices, and payoffs. But game-theoretical situations hardly resemble the competitions people conside “games” in their everyday lives. During this course we study and develop social theory based on how people play games outside of behavior labs and thought experiments. We question what causes people to join games and how games keep players engaged. We study how people devise strategies and when they deploy them. The readings pay special attention to playfulness and come from a variety of social science disciplines. What is the relationship between play and competition? How would explicit consideration of play affect how we model the behavior of competitive communities?
