euro is over and since i don’t want to mention anything about how spain’s midfield completely dominated germany’s, i’ll instead put up a shiny new paper. even though the paper is empirical, there are some philosophy-ish bits in it.
so here’s the skinny: i’ve been filling my days doing some work with mary on cooperation in behavioral game theory. we’ve been looking at a new way of segregating classes of social preference models, pinning commitments on them based on what information certain players have about the payoffs and about what the others know about that distribution of information. the facts are really stark, and bad news for some pretty famous people.
