How Game Theory, Strategy and Probability Rule Our Lives: Haim Shapira

Jewish Book Week 2017
Spoken Word / Sunday, 5 March 2017 - 11:00am / Hall Two
£10.50* / Savers £9.50** / Multi-Event Discount Available

Using a grand piano as his prop, Haim Shapira explores the interplay between happiness and game theory in his contemplation of an eclectic range of theories. His books provide many humorous anecdotes and insightful examples of how our daily lives are affected by Game Theory, the mathematical formulisation of interactive decision-making. Drawing on literary and philosophical sources, Shapira invites us to challenge our perspectives on happiness. We all want to be happy, but what is happiness anyway?


Haim Shapira is an expert in Game Theory, a writer, and an accomplished concert pianist. He holds two PhDs from Tel Aviv University (Mathematical Genetics and Science Education), is one of Israel’s most in-demand lecturers, and is the author of seven best-selling books. He teaches mathematics, psychology, philosophy and literature; and fascinates audiences around the world giving lectures at leading venues and events.
