In his book on "collective action" J. Coleman stresses the difference between two separate approaches of action. The first a causal one, the second a teleological one. He says : There are two quite different streams of work in the study of social action, both of which begin at the level of the individual. Стр. xiv - To develop statistical methods that quantify such causes his general approach is: "(1) to begin with the idea of a process, (2) to attempt to lay out a mathematical model that mirrors this process, and then (3) given particular kinds of data, to transform the mathematical model into a statistical model for estimating parameters of the process.

These chapters are designed particularly to contribute to the study of collective decisions, a form of social action that has proved particularly challenging to theoretical analysis. First published in 1973, this became a significant work both in problem solving and in the future career of the author.
Philosophers, social scientists, and laymen have used two perspectives in analyzing social action. One sees man's action as the result of causal forces, and the other sees action as purposive and goal directed. Mathematical treatment of social action has shown this same dichotomy. Some models of behavior describe a causal process, in which there is no place for intention or purpose.

Nor was effort directed toward trying to convince another player that he should vote for or against a bill. The Mathematics of Collective Action. Instead, most of the action involved negotiations: agreements between two players to support each other on two bills, one of which was of interest to the constituents of each. Sometimes, more than two bills were involved in the discussion, and sometimes, though infrequently, more than two persons were involved.
It contains Coleman’s essays on individual interests and collective action, published over the years 1964–1983. Mancur Olson wrote important books in the area of Collective Choice and is considered one of the founding fathers of Public Choice as a field of economics. The chapters in this volume cover three main areas of Olson's life work: Collective Action, Institutional Sclerosis and Market-Augmenting Government. Some chapters directly assess Olson& contributions, focusing on distinguishing what was.
