This is a brief historical note on game theory. We cover its historical roots (prior to its formal definition in 1944), and look at its development until the late 1960’s.
This paper is a new version of an article published in 1994 in the European Journal of Business Education (4, 1, pp. 30–45), which appeared in Italian translation in the book ‘Giochi competitivi e cooperativi ’ ( I ed., Cedam, Padova, 1997; II ed., Giappichelli, Torino, 2003). The authors are most grateful to Dunia Milanesi for her invaluable help in updating this paper.
