“Based upon the tournament results and the formal propositions, four simple suggestions are offered for individual choice: do not be envious of the other player’s success; do not be the first to defect; reciprocate both cooperation and defection; and do not be too clever.”
Robert Axelrod, The Evolution of Cooperation

“When the players will never meet again, the strategy of defection is the only stable strategy.”
Robert Axelrod, The Evolution of Cooperation

“The Cooperation Theory that is presented in this book is based upon an investigation of individuals who pursue their own self-interest without the aid of a central authority to force them to cooperate with each other.”
Robert Axelrod, The Evolution of Cooperation
