Games, Actions and Social Software. As seen through the lens of mathematics and logic. Presented as a discussion between characters.

It's the result of the collaboration of a group of creative researchers from philosophy, logic, computer science, cognitive science and economics, to investigate the logical, computational and strategic aspects of social mechanisms.

The literary form is inspired by Galileo Galileis 1632 Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems, Raymond Smullyans Is God a Taoist? and the dialogues in Hofstadter's Gödel, Escher, Bach.

"More specic issues mentioned in the project description, such as the development and renement of general theories of intelligent interaction, or the analysis of specic social mechanisms for voting, decision making, exchange of goods and services, auctioning, and so on, will be dealt with in the other project book."

i know this is annoying, but can you put a pdf warning when you post pdfs?

Not that I have anything against PDFs, but it's nice to know when i'm going to click on one, because it tends to hang my browser while it's loading.
