PHIL 266

Games, Rationality and Choice


Description

Are our decisions a matter of reason alone? How are they influenced by others? And can we reason about what others believe about us? The course introduces some ideas from the logic of preference, decision theory, game theory, probability and models of belief dynamics. It is a practical course of formal methods for philosophy students, with an emphasis on applications.
