GAME THEORY: ITS AMBITION TO SERVE AS THE FOUNDATION OF THE SOCIAL
SCIENCES AND OF MORAL PHILOSOPHY

Game theory presents itself as the study of collective decision making.
It has however come under frequent attacks on the ground that its
demands for human rationality are overly stringent. It responded to
these challenges vigorously by the imposition of the construct of
evolutionary games. In this talk I suggest to consider, in turn, the
structure of its so-called solution (or equilibrium) concepts. These
concepts can be assessed independently from the norms of rationality
the theory tends to entail. However, as I will argue, none of the
equilibrium concepts leave room for truly interdependent choice and
thus the theory should be seen as unable to address a large range of
issues in the social sciences and in moral philosophy - an
embarrassment given its wide-ranging ambitions. I will demonstrate this
claim by the example of the Prisoner's Dilemma and will especially
consider the extent to which this game can contribute to the discussion
of central issues in moral philosophy.
In the talk, I will present the relevant solution concepts in their
full-fledged mathematical form so that we will be able attend without
hindrance to their conceptual structure.
