Comment on Raimo Tuomela. Joint Action: How Rational? How Irreducible?

Analyse & Kritik 33 (1):87-92 (2011)
In his 'Cooperation as joint action', Tuomela presents a we-mode account of cooperation, which he argues has several advantages over an individual account. This commentary examines to what extent this is true. In particular, I assess three related characteristics of we-mode joint action: its possible rationality, its greater efficiency, and its alleged irreducibility to purely individual properties, which are recurring points of the article.
