Marcin Łazarz: Who’s stronger? Game-theory analysis of power in the context of voting games
The workshop is an introduction to the topic of voting games. The main aim is to present and discuss two dimensions of power – the Shapley power index and the Banzhaf power index – in the context of critical thinking. From the point of view of game-theory, establishing the power of particular players is a very important issue, because the problem of creating a coalition is based on it (does a powerful player prefer coalition with another power player or with a weak player?) and the problem of fairly splitting the winnings (the powerful player should get more benefits from joining the coalition than the weak player).
Katarzyna Kuczyńska: How do we systemize knowledge and reality? On the deceptive art of ordering
The topic of the workshop will be intellectual procedures related to systematizing phenomena and objects: searching for rules, classification criteria and reflection on normative criteria in the context of the Campbell-Godhart law. These critical deliberations will expose the relationship between intellectual procedures of systematization and its social consequences. During the workshop the participants will activate and/or develop logic-analytical skills and communication-argumentation skills.
