Game Theory in Jurisprudence

Wojciech Zaluski

 Open this page in an own window


Game theory is a branch of mathematics which studies strategic  interactions, i.e., interactions which involve more than one agent and  in which each agent makes her decision while striving to predict the  decisions of other agents. Game theory has been successfully applied in  many areas of both the natural and social sciences, and it is the belief  of this book’s author – Wojciech Załuski –  that it can also be  gainfully invoked in the area of legal philosophy. In this book, Załuski  analyzes such legal-philosophical concepts as legal interpretation,  justice, legal rights, contract, tort and property law through the lens  of game theory. Since the book does not assume any previous knowledge of  game theory, appeals mainly to its conceptual rather than the  technical side, and intertwines game-theoretical analysis with the  philosophical, it will be accessible to a wider circle of readers  interested in legal and moral philosophy.
