This course examines the foundations and applications of game theory from a philosophical perspective. The course is divided into two parts. The first part examines central concepts of game theory, such as rationality, games, and basic solutions concepts. The second part examines how game theory has been used to analyse philosophical problems. The second part will, in particular, examine the suggestion that game theory can be used to analyse and explain the natural and emergence of social norms and morality.
