(p.72) Chapter 6 Light Shed by the Two Coordinations
Knowledge and Coordination

Daniel B. Klein

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses cooperation in terms of the concatenate and mutual coordinations. It defines “cooperation” as the mutual coordinating of each person’s actions in a context in which each cooperator perceives to be contributing to the same concatenation. There is mutual consciousness of each individual contributing to the pleasing concatenation. The spirit of cooperation is especially pronounced when there is not only mutual awareness of contribution but mutual sentiment. According to Friedrich Hayek, cooperation assumes a large measure of agreement on ends as well as on methods employed in their pursuit.

Keywords:   mutual coordination, cooperation, concatenation, mutual consciousness, mutual awareness, mutual sentiment
