What is stopping us from cooperating and what can we do about it? Experiments on trust and justice.


Moving through the story of a forest of fractals, the prisoner`s dilemma, Tit for Tat, the tragedy of commons, this is a view over some main ingredients of cooperation. Beside the "altruistic punishment of the cheaters" what are the ingredients that can link a society together in "a live and let live" attitude, far from fear, aggression and will to control?
How can we access our "group mind" resources leading to intelligent solutions in crises times.
Some major scientists as the biologist Lynn Margulis, called by a Nobel laureate ”the mistress of the creative hypothesis, the great speculatrix" or a ”mathematician of cooperation” as Martin A. Nowak, cleared the way for a transdiciplinary study of cooperation, placed, epistemological, in a relational logic, which is a much more dynamic, complex and of course, as fascinating as life itself, way of thinking. How can a practice of relational aesthetics, as the one of music, dance or theater improvisation, be involved in this scientific wave?
