How to live well together


Welcome to the infinite game!

Imagine if life was a game, an infinite game in which we continually changed the rules to keep our deepest values in play and ensure that everyone could take part. What would that look like? What kind of player would you be? 

The infinite game project was started by Niki Harré from the University of Auckland. The title was inspired by James Carse’s book Finite and Infinite Games, a wonderful work of scholarship and poetry that offers a new metaphor to help understand our time.

On May 10, 2018 Niki's book The Infinite Game: How to Live Well Together will be published by Auckland University Press. It can be pre-ordered now. You can also pre-order a 2018 edition of Psychology for a Better World: Working with People to Save the Planet, which will be released on the same date.

In the meantime, you can use this site to read Niki's occasional blogregister for updates, and find out about Infinite Game Workshops

Truth can go out of stories, you know. What was true becomes meaningless, even a lie, because the truth has gone into another story. The water of the spring rises in another place.
— Ursula K. Le Guin
As people concerned for Earth, if we do nothing because we think we cannot do enough, we misread, profoundly, the game of life.
