As a boy, Anatol Rapoport and his father succeeded in a daring escape from the Soviet Union. He went on to become a leading mathematical psychologist, semanticist and game theorist, making major contributions to the understanding of strategy, conflict, war, and peace.

He was always intent on tying strategic analysis to the conscientious appreciation of real human beings. Rapoport spent a significant portion of his variegated career at U-M, where among other things he helped found the Mental Health Research Institute and organize the first Teach-In, on the Vietnam War.

Join us for an exploration of Anatol Rapoport’s journeys – personal and intellectual – with three panelists: Shirli Kopelman, leading researcher, expert, and educator in the field of negotiations at the U-M Ross School of Business; Anthony Rapoport, son of Anatol and principal violist with Sinfonia Toronto and the Windermere Quartet; and Roger Rapoport, LSA ’68, award-winning author and filmmaker and author of A Professor’s War for Peace.
