This bookaddresses the conditions of the humancooperative activities in order to focus ontheir common roots and to bring themback to an unitary origin. It is profoundlyanimated by the task of understandinghow cooperative skills are able to evolvethe plurality of the cooperative activitiesfrom the spontaneous to the institutionalones and to find a common denominatorfor joint actions.
