Finite and Infinite Games by James Carse

There is one infinite game. There are myriad finite games within the infinite game. But unlike finite games, the infinite game cannot be won. Finite games are outcome-related. The infinite game is experience-related. Players put time into play and work to ensure that play continues. Culture is an infinite game with art that is discovered, felt and expressed through people. Everyone is a participant. There are no boundaries, no waste, no ownership and no possession. There is but one infinite game.
