Commitments: From Individual Intentions to Groups and Organizations

Cristinno Castelfranchi

The aim of these notes is to introduce some notions of Commitment which are crucial for the understanding of groups and organizations’ functioning, and of the relations between individual agents and collective activity. I try to identify some of the basic ingredients of such notions, and to make some steps towards their formalization. In particular, I claim that a notion of Commitment is needed as a mediation between the individual and the collective one.
