A Utilidade dos Maus Fígados

"Why would it make sense to enjoy taking revenge against others? Imagine that 2,000 years ago you were contemplating stealing my donkey. Now, if you thought that I was a rational person you might do the following calculation: It will take Dan five days to make enough money to buy a new donkey, so if I steal his donkey and run to a distance that is longer than a five day journey, it will not be worthwhile for him to chase me and he will just get over it. I suspect that in this case there is a good chance that you would actually go ahead and steal my donkey. But what if you realized that I was the vengeful type, and that if you stole my donkey, I would chase you to the end of the world and take back not only my donkey but also I would take all of your goats. Would you still go ahead and steal my donkey? I suspect that you would not. We can think about revenge as a mechanism that works a bit like the police force to create cooperation and order in society."

 

Toda a teoria, aqui:
