Abstract

Tomasello argues in the target article that a sense of moral obligation emerges from the creation of a collaborative we motivating us to fulfill our cooperative duties. We suggest that we takes many forms, entailing different obligations, depending on the type (and underlying functions) of the relationship(s) in question. We sketch a framework of such types, functions, and obligations to guide future research in our commentary.
