We are not a particularly “cooperative species”; but, our emotion-soaked lineages instinctively build teams to share information.

Tit-for-tat, or something like that

Discussing the logical fallacies of the sophisticated Tit-for-tat reciprocal mathematical game of socialization, Minsos speculates in Weird Tit-for-tat (2004) that team making is more complicated than any yes/no or cooperate/do not cooperate algorithm can build. The social game is has two neutral moves but it always plays with a zero component (defection). ©️

 

Culture Clubs

Looking to our sameness rather than our differences, Minsos speculates that “mannering” shapes everyone’s social conduct. Mannering illustrates the workings of a dominate-comply interface and shows how and why dominators want to control our manners and the how and why compliors can reap subtle benefits. The Prisoner’s Dilemma, locked and unlocked, plays constantly under dominators’ noses. Defectors, if free to play defect, can move on. ©️
