Lec 20 - The Prisoner's Dilemma

"Lec 20 - The Prisoner's Dilemma"Philosophy and the Science of Human Nature (PHIL 181) Two game theoretical problems--the Prisoner's Dilemma and the Problem of the Commons--are explored in detail. Both collective decision-making scenarios are structured such that all parties making rational choices ensures a less desired outcome for each than if each had chosen individually-less-preferred options. To conclude, Professor Gendler discusses various strategies that can be used to address both problems. 00:00 - Chapter 1. The Prisoners' Dilemma 20:11 - Chapter 2.
