#6: Finite and Infinite Games with James Carse

Thirty-five years ago, James Carse wrote a book called ‘Finite and Infinite Games: A Vision of Life as Play and Possibility’. Over three decades later, it remains popular. In this podcast we explore what the ideas expressed in the book could mean when applied in a political space.


A finite game is played to be won and an infinite game is played for the purpose of continuing play. In this episode, Mark calls James Carse to explore questions about how the ideas in his book apply to politics and public life.
