Review: Charles Goodwin (2018). Co-Operative Action

Maximilian Krug


Charles GOODWIN is known as one of the pioneers in the field of social interaction research. In his latest book, he arranges his previous publications so as to provide a framework that could result in a "radical turn in anthropology." Co-operative action provides a mechanism for the accumulation and reuse of materials from previous actions on a moment-by-moment-basis, while simultaneously enabling researchers to reach behind the paradigm of co-presence. With "Co-Operative Action," GOODWIN introduces an intriguing framework for analyzing such complex social situations.
