This is a dialogue between two professional people on the new field called “epistemic logics and game theory”. One speaker is a specialist who has been working in this field for a long time, and the other is a game theorist who is quite new to the field and younger than the specialist. They start discussing the Konnyaku Mondô and find that it has many implications for game theory in terms of its foundations and scope.
