[Xmca-l] Re: Collective decisions



Andy,
This book that germinated in your observation that differing notions of what is the preferred way of participating in  collective mutual collaboration was fragmenting collective forms into factions.
This question *why* which led to this book  is a profound question.

It overlaps significantly with the monologue/ monologue theme. 
As I read the synopsis  your adding  *counsel* as a third way was interesting.

One impression as I was reading  was how significant *intermediate* community (between family and state) was historically to generating  all three developmental *forms* of con/sensus.
The notion of collaboration which includes:
The prefix *con* with *sensus* has a tone which  resonates both with this thread and the other thread.

Not unrelated to the theme of collaboration, I would like to 
share the news of the publication of my book, "The Origins 
of Collective Decision Making," which takes an historical 
perspective on the topic, stretching back more than 1,000 years.
I have attached a synopsis for your interest.
