EGT is radically different from classical game theory in its rejection of the use of equilibrium as the starting point of analysis. It would be hard to get a clear view of the effect of this shift, if EGT made other changes at the same time. Since expected-payoff maximization is the assumption almost always made in the classical theory, EGT holds this part fixed. We can think of the approach as rather like conducting a controlled experiment, in which one variable is changed while the others remain fixed.

Jerome Keisler 16 In an interactive frame, the states for both a and b become members of the set W of worlds. P is the accessibility relation. This definition makes no restrictions on the part of P in U a × U a and U b × U b . Thus, beliefs for players about themselves are allowed in the interactive frame, but the corresponding belief model does not depend on them. With this setup, it will be apparent that our impossibility phenomenon is not affected by the players’ beliefs about themselves.
