Reflecting the growing consensus that in many important contexts outside of anonymous markets, human behavior is not well described by classical “rationality,” Gintis shows students how to apply game theory to model how people behave in ways that reflect the special nature of human sociality and individuality.
Rafael Marques rated it really liked it May 24, In effect, the book reads like a collection of problems and answers only now and then interrupted by bits of explanation.
In some places it seems that sections have not yet been fully adapted to their new place in the book; sometimes new concepts are used before being introduced, while other concepts are introduced twice. Refresh and try again.
Gintis then moves on to the more specific topics of principal-agent models, signaling games, and repeated games. In the final quarter of the book, the emphasis shifts to topics characteristic of evolutionary game theory: Some of these are rather sketchy, which can be frustrating to readers studying independently. An enjoyable book, I really wish I could understand it more fully, but that will come. In this regard, Gintis and his publisher missed an opportunity to turn Game Theory Evolving into a truly great textbook.

Jukka Aakula rated it really liked it Apr 30, Aside from specific topics, the text also seems to have been shortened overall, giving the impression that often explanation has been shortened in favor of additional problems. Thanks for telling us about the problem.

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. Temy Chonos rated it really liked it Mar 23, 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.

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. What has changed as compared to the first edition? Second, the content has been thoroughly reordered as compared to the first version, and nearly all chapters have been renamed.
This comprehensive range of topics, including both classic game theory and evolvingg dynamics, sets this book apart from many of its competitors who typically focus on one of both. And unlike many other game theorists, Gintis does not theorry away from agent-based models, which are discussed in various places.
Want to Read saving…. This book is perfect for upper undergraduate and graduate economics courses as well as a terrific introduction for ambitious thwory throughout the behavioral sciences.
