Material:

The Prisoner's Dilemma

Rating: 4 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course

Comment: Warning: this is kind of addictive... it's a game, after all. It's helpful that there is also text around it to give theoretical perspective on the philosophical problem. Can it also be used in teaching probability? Can the game be enahnced by adding a score for "correctly guessing" your opponent's strategy (if random is chosen)? Can it be done as a 2-player game (obviously this can be done face to face, too!)

Technical Remarks:

Requires Shockwave
