Whether we are competing for a job, building a business or championing a good cause, some days it can feel as if we are trapped in an endless competition for status, wealth, or attention. Maybe if we learn to play the game and follow the rules we’ll come out on top. But is life really a finite game—a game of selection and rules, winners and losers, players and spectators? In The Infinite Game, Niki Harré asks us to imagine our world anew.
