The importance of us : a philosophical study of basic social notions by Raimo Tuomela( Book )
11 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book develops a systematic philosophical theory of social action and group phenomena, in the process presenting detailed analyses of such central social notions as "we-attitude" (especially "we-intention" and mutual belief, social norm, joint action, and - most important - group goal, group belief, and group action). Humans are social beings whose accounts of their social life inherently rely on social group notions involving the core concept of "we." The crucial notions for understanding macro-level group notions are shown to be joint action, we-attitude (especially we-intention and mutual belief), social norm, and group-commitment-creating "authority system" (roughly, a system for the formation of joint intentions). Though this is a philosophical work, it presents a unified conceptual framework that may be useful to social scientists, especially social psychologists, as well as philosophers

Social ontology : collective intentionality and group agents by Raimo Tuomela( Book )
9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Social ontology, in its broadest sense, is the study of the nature of social reality, including collective intentions and agency. The starting point of Tuomela's account of collective intentionality is the distinction between thinking and acting as a private person ("I-mode") versus as a "we-thinking" group member ("we-mode"). The we-mode approach is based on social groups consisting of persons, which may range from simple task groups consisting of a few persons to corporations and even to political states. Tuomela extends the we-mode notion to cover groups controlled by external authority. Thus, for instance, cooperation and attitude formation are studied in cases where the participants are governed "from above" as in many corporations. -- Publisher website
