Game theory is a mathematical theory of strategic interaction between rational agents. It has been widely, and with much success, applied in various areas of social sciences, especially economics and sociology. However, it has been relatively rarely used in the analyses pursued within legal theory and legal dogmatics. The presens volume is intended to fill in - at least to a certain extent - this gap: the general message of the most of the papers collected in it is that game theory can be a useful tool also for legal scholars. It contains, though, also two sceptical voices regarding the applicability of game theory in legal analysis.
