Philip Pettit, Laurance S. Rockefeller University Professor of Politics and the University Center for Human Values, and Christian List, a former Laurance S. Rockefeller Visiting Fellow at the Center, recently published their book Group Agency: The Possibility, Design, and Status of Corporate Agents in April with Oxford University Press.
Addressing the question of whether groups such as companies, churches, and states are agents in their own right, or whether they are mere collections of individual agents, Pettit and List argue in favor of the former, and offer a new theory of group agency with broad relevance to the social sciences, law, morality, and politics.
