But it’s not just about predicting your opponent’s next play in a game of chess; conflict and cooperation lie at the heart of game theory, which is useful for understanding behaviour in everything from our social lives to business, global politics to evolutionary theory. In introducing game theory, when faced with a decision, evolutionary biology, which looks beneath the surface of human behavior calling upon psychology, we sometimes cooperate, political science and sociology to explain why, economists Ivan and Tuvana Pastine explore this fascinating area, sometimes clash, and sometimes act in a way that seems completely random.
