Abstract
As one of the classical experiments in game theory, the ultimatum game plays an important role in studying the issue of human fairness and explaining whether it is inherent or acquired. Experiments show that the primates which closest to human beings are not always making a fair choice. Experiments on human children show that the sense of equity increases with age. From the perspective of social evolution, the sense of human fairness tends to be enhanced in the process of social evolution. Recently, the research focuses on neuroeconomic which proves the sense of human fairness owns its physiological basis. The review and the study of human fairness will not only help to further explore the theory of decision making, but also benefit the practice and application of the theory of fairness.
