Philosophy Teaching Games


Do you use games as a teaching tool in your philosophy course? And if so, which games, and to teach what? The questions were prompted by a friend drawing attention to “The Hobbes Game” by John Immerwahr (in the Fall 1976 issue of Teaching Philosophy).  He lays out the game in the first few pages of the article, reproduced below. See the full article for a discussion of the game and some other ones.
