Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses what the discussion of P tells people about CU. This is done by recalling where the discussion of CU stopped at the end of Chapter 8. It also provides a more detailed five-step sketch of CU, which directs each agent to do certain things. Some of these steps include holding himself ready to do his part in the co-operative venture and identifying the other co-operators.

Keywords: P; CU; five-step sketch; agent; co-operative venture; co-operators
