Michael Argyle believes that one of the most important components - our capacity to cooperate - has been overlooked and that the whole notion of cooperation has not been properly understood. Highly critical of earlier approaches he puts forward a new and extended understanding of what cooperation consists of. He offers new solutions to intergroup and other social problems and gives a newlook at language and communicaiton as a cooperative enterprise.
