This course is an introduction to game theory and strategic thinking. Ideas such as dominance, backward induction, Nash equilibrium, evolutionary stability, commitment, credibility, asymmetric information, adverse selection, and signaling are discussed and applied to games played in class and to examples drawn from economics, politics, the movies, and elsewhere.
Philip Zimbardo knows how easy it is for nice people to turn bad. In this talk, he shares insights and graphic unseen photos from the Abu Ghraib trials. Then he talks about the flip side: how easy it is to be a hero, and how we can rise to the challenge.

Sadly, this is precisely what has happened to the demure Henri Debrus, forcing himself to detach from his body at a specific and constant 91-centimetre distance apart.

Just imagine it. It's not funny.

They are universal and equal. The following pubilcation gives an overview of Human Rights across the globe."--BCcampus website.
