In the second study, we compare the relative weight of these two set of factors by studying how they affect subjects’ behaviour in the Ultimatum game (UG). We find differences in

Anthropology in Economic, Philosophical and Theological Perspective 
Translator: Martina Sitling
In addition to being contemplated in the classical disciplines of anthropology, human sociality has been subjected to scientific examination in the natural and social sciences. This book offers a substantial discussion of empirical research programs within current economics (experimental and neuroeconomics), with special regard to the themes of reciprocity and altruism. These themes are discussed from a philosophical perspective informed by phenomenology and hermeneutics, and linked to theories of conflict, recognition and alterity in social philosophy, which are used to show the limitations of the purely science-based naturalistic approaches in economics. Finally, the book introduces the concept of the neighbor in Christian theology and shows how this figure brings a new perspective to the examination of human sociality.

Another feature of the taxonomy concerns whether the task represents a game of agreement or one of coordination. A game of agreement allows the behav- ioral act of agreeing, reaching accord

Japanese claim ignited a deeply ingrained collective memory of past injustice. According to the findings from the ultimatum game (Gäth et al. 1982; Gäth & Tietz 1990; Rabin 1993 ; Fehr & Schmid 1999 ), injustice prompts “responders” to retaliate and punish the perpetrators, even if such action is

. There is substantial evidence to suggest that humans’ concern for fairness in the distribution of material rewards is conditioned not only by material concerns, but by the concern for status. The concern for fairness that typically manifests itself in the well-known “ultimatum game” shows that human

, was aversive. It made sense, therefore, to test chimpanzees on the Ultimatum Game (UG), which is the gold standard of the human sense of fairness. In the UG, one individual (the Proposer) can split money with another individual (the Respondent). If the Respondent accepts the offer, both players are
