The evolution of trust

leave a comment »

Robert Axelrod wrote a fascinating little book, The Evolution of Cooperation, that used a computer to run tournaments in which competitors submitted strategies to be followed for The Prisoner’s Dilemma. The book is on my list of books I find myself repeatedly recommending, and the winner of the competition was Anatol Rappoport, whose book Operational Philosophy, was very big for me in high school and still is worth reading (and is found on that same list of books.

Now you can play the game and see what Axelrod was talking about: see The Evolution of Trust.

Let me repeat my recommendation of both books.
