Theory of Games as a Tool for the Moral Philosopher: An Empiricist's View of the Nature of Religious Belief

Burns & Oates (1994)
  Copy   BIBTEX


In Theory of Games, Braithwaite shows that mathematical theory of games can be used to shed light upon such notions as prudence and justice in situations involving human choices and co-operation between individuals. In his work on the Nature of Religious Belief he argues that just as a moral assertion is an expression of an intention to act in accordance with certain policy, so a religious assertion must be understood as a declaration of adherence to a system of moral principles governing 'inner life' as well as external behaviour.
