In both our personal and work lives we regularly encounter 'games': that is, situations where our actions affect the others we interact with, and vice versa. Game Theory provides a framework to discuss and analyse these types of strategic interactions. It provides a modern language to important issues in business, economics, political science, sociology, philosophy and ethics, socio-biology and law. In this unit, you will be introduced to the central elements of game theory. You will learn about thinking strategically and its benefits in a variety of strategic settings and for many different applications. We will discuss how people might be expected to act in a variety of games and identify the best response to that behaviour.
