On accounts like Bratman’s or Gilbert’s, ‘it makes some sense to say that the result is a kind of shared action: the individual people are, after all, acting intentionally throughout.
However, in a deeper sense, the activity is not shared: the group itself is not engaged in action whose aim the group finds worthwhile, and so the actions at issue here are merely those of individuals.
Thus, these accounts ... fail to make sense of a ... part of the landscape of social phenomena’
Helm (2008, pp. 20-1)
Gilbert: All joint commitments are commitments to emulate, as far as possible, a single body which does something (2013, p. 64).
In manifesting any collective phenomenon, we can truly say ‘We have created a third thing, and each of us is one of the parts’
Gilbert (2013, p. 269).
