Using Game Theory and the Bible to Build Critical Thinking Skills
McCannon, Bryan C.
Journal of Economic Education, v38 n2 p160-164 Spr 2007
The author describes a course designed to build the critical thinking skills of undergraduate economics students. The course introduces and uses game theory to study the Bible. Students gain experience using game theory to formalize events and, by drawing parallels between the Bible and common economic concepts, illustrate the pervasiveness of game-theoretic reasoning across topics within economics as well as various fields of study. (Contains 3 notes and 1 table.)
