Revisitando críticamente nociones de similitud en la teoría de juegos comportamentales


  • Carlos Maximiliano Senci Instituto de Investigaciones Económicas y Sociales del Sur (IIESS) - Universidad Nacional del Sur - CONICET


Palabras clave:

teoría de juegos. similitud. superracionalidad. razonamiento en equipo. pensamiento mágico.


El objetivo de este trabajo consiste en revisar críticamente diferentes concepciones de similitud en la teoría de juegos que se encuentran presupuestas en diversos conceptos de solución. Pasamos revista a cuatro concepciones: 1) similitud empírica, 2) la doctrina Harsanyi-Aumann, 3) Superracionalidad, y 4) pensamiento mágico. Evaluamos críticamente las diferentes nociones en función de la similitud que presuponen, la viabilidad para resolver problemas de coordinación y/o cooperación basados en ellas, y su fundamentación racional.
