I prefer to think of Game theory as a set of tools to describe and analyze social interactive decision situations. This viewpoint leads to several important implications. First, game theory is neither a single theory nor a unified body of knowledge nor a single research program in the sense of Lakatos (1978). Rather it is a collection of a variety of subfields and approaches, each representing a possibly fundamentally different approach to the description of a certain social interactive decision situation.
