Solidarity: A Motivational Conception

Philosophical Papers 41 (1):57-95 (2012)
Abstract
Abstract This essay offers a motivational conception of solidarity that can be employed across the entire range of sciences and humanities, while also filling a gap in the motivational spectrum conceived by decision theorists and economists?and expanding the two-part division between altruistic and selfish motivations into a tripartite analysis that suggests a spectrum instead. According to the present proposal, solidarity is a condition of action-readiness on behalf of a group or its interests. The proposal will admit of measuring the extent to which Prisoner's Dilemmas are overcome in real life via acts of solidarity
