Example text

This can even apply to parents and teachers, the benevolent authorities of our childhood. My own father prided himself on his fairness, but he spent more time and effort on me than he did on my brothers because I happened to perform quite well in exams. His own education had been disrupted, and this was his way of vicariously enjoying the benefits of education. Let’s face it—benevolent authority is largely a myth. We would certainly love to have access to it when we read of bullying in schools, army generals grabbing power in some far-off country, or innocent people being massacred in civil wars.

The wives weren’t actually the problem; it was how the man’s estate should be shared among them when he died. Each of them had legally binding nuptial agreements (unlike some celebrities today), but the three agreements were different. One wife’s agreement specified that she should receive 100 dinars from his estate (approximately $8,500). The second wife, who seems to have had a better lawyer, was to receive 200 dinars. The third wife, who had the best lawyer of all, was owed 300 dinars. The rabbis had the job of coming up with a mishna (a brief set of conclusions) that would provide guidelines on what to do if his estate amounted to less than the required 600 dinars.

It gave little indication of what his Nobel Prize–winning discovery actually was or how incredibly important it is to our understanding of the problems of cooperation and what we might be able to do about them. Nash made his discovery when he was just twenty-one and not yet suffering from the schizophrenia that was to blight much of his life. He is even able to joke about his mental illness, saying in one interview: “Mathematicians are comparatively sane as a group. ” He proved his genius within eighteen months by using the recently developed science of game theory first to identify the logical trap (now known as the “Nash equilibrium”) and then to prove a startling proposition—that there is at least one Nash equilibrium lying in wait to trap us in every situation of competition or conflict in which the parties are unwilling or unable to communicate.
