Presenter:Barry O’Neill, UCLATitle: “What is an Agreement?”Abstract:The concept of an agreement is important in game theory, political theory and law but writers disagree about just what it is. Some argue that an agreement cannot be a pair of promises, but the stit logic of agency allows an analysis that avoids their objections. The definition has an unexpected consequence. Legal as well as informal norms say that one party should not undermine a deal by interfering with the other’s carrying out their part. Courts and scholars have based this on a catch-all norm of “good faith in performance” but appealing to good faith is unnecessary. Non-interference follows from the basic principles of an appropriate logic of obligation.About the Speaker:Barry O’Neill is Professor of Political Science at the University of California, Los Angeles.  His fields of study include international relations and methodology.  For additional background, click here.Sponsored by the Formal Theory Reading Group
