-
Hauptschule
Seminar / Seminar
english language

What factors determine human interactions? When do people cooperate and when do conflicts arise? We discuss this profound question with particular attention to the role of the environment, the many kinds of interactions which are possible, and the role of individual heterogeneity expressed in individual pro- and anti-social preferences
