This course – the understanding of belief systems and behavior. It covers philosophies from Plato and Aristotle to Adam Smith and Karl Marx. We will discuss why people behave this way and not otherwise, why different societies have different structure and culture and how they affect life. We also reveal the concept of “Game Theory” by John Nash, and its introduction into the social, political and economic spheres of society. We analyze corruption as a form of culture and discuss how to overcome it with the “Nash equilibrium”. Also touch on the theme of risk management, and through the simulation study technology assessment and calculation of risk.


Create for students most complete picture of what forms of taking people’s beliefs, culture, attitude towards life and behavior in society. To help students to reflect on the policy objectives, economy, education and culture, and that they not only saw how all of these factors are combined into a whole picture, but also to provide them with a methodology to solve problems.


Lectures will take place in an interactive format. Students will need to ask questions during the lectures and participate in discussions. The first lecture theoretical: we will have a broad and detailed overview of the main issues. The second lecture will be more analytical, and will therefore include more interactions. The third lecture will be very practical, including some of the skills in the field of IT. As a result, we will have an open discussion about the further development of the society in which we live.
