Abstract: A framework is proposed for analyzing various types of rational interaction. We consider a variety of restrictions of participants' moves; each leads to a diferent characterization of rational behavior. Under an assumption of "common rationality," it is proven that participants will cooperate, rather than defect, in the Prisoner's Dilemma.
