Finite and Infinite Games

James P. Carse

Overview

Finite and Infinite Games: A Vision of Life as Play and Possibility invites readers to leave their assumptions about the seriousness of life behind. According to James P. Carse, Professor Emeritus of history and literature of religion at New York University, games aren't limited to sports and children's schoolyard activities. Your work, relationships, and politics all have game-like qualities.

By focusing on life's game-like aspects, we can improve our understanding of how it all works, learn to become better players – and win.
