Nash didn't go against game theory he simply expanded upon it. Prior to Nash, Von Neuman (spelling) wrote on games and theory which basically founded the school of thought. V N postulated the minimax solution set in a zero sum game wherein players with infinite rationality minimize their maximum loss. In a zero sum game the minimax solution is also a Nash solution. Nash expanded on this theorem by extending to non-zero sum games. In a Nash equilibrium all players with infinite rationality come to the same solution point (meaning knowing what the other player chooses would not change their choice).

Please don't ask me about the math. I've always sucked at discreet mathematics.

Have you watched The Stanford Human Behavioural Biology lectures on youtube on game theory and the prisoner's dilemma in the animal kingdom?

The Stanford Prisoner Experiment is a delightfully fucked up movie.
