Young (1993) presents an evolutionary model of bargaining supporting the Nash solution. 107) writes: The evolutionary dynamics of distributive justice in discrete bargaining games is evidently more complicated than any one axiomatic bargaining theory. But our results reveal the considerable robustness of the Nash solution. Despite the popularity of the Nash solution in the economic literature mentioned above Skyrms continues: Perhaps philosophers who have spent so much time discussing the utilitarian and Kalai-Smorodinsky schemes should pay a little more attention to the Nash bargaining solution.

Pure Strategy Solution Concepts Evidently, each player i’s family of preference orderings Ri (s−i ) (s−i ∈ S−i ) determines which pure strategies dominate other pure strategies either weakly or strictly, as well as the best responses. It follows that the same orderings determine any solution concept which depends on dominance relations or best responses, such as Nash equilibrium, and strategies that survive iterated deletion of strategies which are dominated by other pure strategies. 3. BEYOND ORDINAL NON-COMPARABILITY Each player i’s family of preference orderings Ri (s−i ) (s−i ∈ S−i ) over Si is obviously invariant under utility transformations of the form u˜i (sN ) ≡ ψi (ui (sN ); s−i ) where for each fixed ¯−i ∈ S−i the mapping r → ψi (r; ¯−i ) from R into itself is strictly increasing.
