The Origins of Collective Decision Making
With invaluable insight and poignant analysis, Blunden traces the hidden origins of three paradigms of decision-making: Counsel, Majority, and Consensus.
Building on his highly original and always insightful earlier works on collective activity, in Origins of Collective Decision Making Andy Blunden turns his attention to the question of how groups make decisions. Examining three paradigms—Counsel, Majority, and Consensus based methods—Blunden discovers that each has unique ethical foundations, deeply rooted in the historical experiences of specific struggles.
