Shared Agency

Abraham Sesshu Roth, Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, May 03, 2017
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This excellent revision of the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy's (SEP) article on shared agency is a must-read for anyone working on theories of applications of collaboration in learning. "Shared activity is distinguished from a mere aggregation of individual acts by a structure of appropriately related participatory intentions across different individuals. It is a structure that has a distinctive normative significance for those individuals, with an impact most immediately on each individual’s intention-based practical reasoning." The article discusses different accounts of shared action, mechanisms for structuring interrelated intentions, mutual obligations, and the group-mind hypothesis. See also: collective intentionality.
