Example text

At a fundamental level, negotiating the constitutive rules and practices is creating, changing, undermining, or reinforcing a form of collective action. And all successful collective actions are rooted in collective Theoretical Framework 22 intentionality. The variation of the extent to which the constitutive rules and practices are taken for granted means that those constitutive rules and practices are underpinned by different scopes of collective intentionality. This means that collective intentionality is in itself always undergoing a process of construction, deconstruction, and reconstruction.

Is it a property of the individuals making up the collectivity? Or, alternatively, is it the manifestation of some sort of supermind or Hegelian spirit? Following John Searle’s view (1995), this book adopts the perspective that individual intentionality and collective intentionality are both “primitive” and cannot be reduced to one another. However, agreeing with a number of Searle’s critics,3 the book rejects Searle’s ontological position that both individual intentionality and collective intentionality are “located” in the minds of individuals— that is, are features of the individual.

Such contingencies cannot be completely resolved using available information on intentions and capabilities, however perfect the information might be. This is more so in times of political instability, when institutional constraints and mutual obligations could be at stake, such as during debates on state governance in deeply divided societies. Put differently, groups are concerned with assessing the reliability of today’s intercommunal information as an indicator of their future strategic environment.
