Globalization pressures have made cooperation on a global scale both necessary and possible. But cooperation is not easy in a world dominated by individual, cultural, and national selfish interests. The opposition to cooperation means that cooperation is not natural, but must be instituted through an intellectual and social struggle against countervailing forces. This book discusses issues that are necessary to describe the nature of cooperation and how it can be promoted as a social and ethical ideal amidst a sea of competing interests. Dr. Ratner uses the framework of cooperativism, that is the system of social institutions, social philosophy, cultural psychology and politics that promotes cooperation, as a starting point. Elements of cooperativism are derived from a rigorous analysis of various sources, including the needs of tendencies of human culture and human psychology.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"Ratner (Institute for Cultural Research and Education) proposes that the solutions to the world problems lie within the communal roots of cooperative behaviors. He argues for a social paradigm shift, positioning cooperation as a broad praxis rooted in various social sciences. ... Ratner's book is educational and stimulating. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty and professionals." (I. I. Katzarska-Miller, Choice, Vol. 50 (9), May, 2013)
