The relevant theories have been developed over the past four decades in a variety of disciplines: mathematics, economics, psychology, political science, biology, and philosophy. And the problems these paradoxes uncover can arise in many different forms: in debates over nuclear disarmament, labour-management disputes, marital conflicts, Calvinist theology, and even in the evolution of disease through the cooperation of microorganisms. The possibilities for application are virtually limitless.
