Hi - I just found your comment in the Human Nature group ... thanks for the link to your paper! Your "Deriving Common Interests from Animal Origins" brought to mind Mark Klein's "Using Iterative Narrowing to Enable Multi-Party
Negotiations" ... puts "sense making" in context!
Great comment ... one of us should write a blog post so we can continue this thread in comments!
IMNSHO successful negotiations, however they're formed explicitly, are fundamentally about "deriving common interests". Seems to me most social narrative is about strengthening in-group/out-group identity i.e. polarization / zero-sum etc.
I noticed a few years ago that "evidence-based" has come into more use. A comment on previous practice, ehh whot? *grin* But really, it's like bacon&eggs ... the pig is committed but the chicken is only involved ... evidence-based and task-oriented is where I've been since, well, for most of my active adulthood. That is not an empty distinction. The point, to my way of thinking, is more to generate results than new tools.
