Бузов, Вихрен (2013) On the Justification of Cooperative Decisions in the Field of Knowledge Rethinking Politics for the Knowledge Society, eds. T. Dima, K. Gasparel, Dan Simbotin, Iasi, pp.57-63;


 Discussed in this paper are certain methodological problems facing up social thinkers and mankind today in finding justification of cooperative decisions in the field of knowledge. Cooperative strategies rely on the social welfare function in order to find out values of individual utility functions – i.e. on the states of maximization of benefits or utilities visa- vis different individuals. Cooperative strategies rely on holism; and corporate strategies – on methodological individualism; the latter perceives of society as a sum of atomized individuals. According to holism „the general” is more important than the „individual”; it satisfies a ruling social interest. Knowledge is a communitarian social value as are also solidarity, cooperation and mutual assistance.
