No. Definetely not. Wasn't it Mead among those who attempted to theorize
"symbolically mediated interaction" and normative grounds to collective
action & cooperation? I always find Mead similar to, though less
functionalist than Durkheim.

You know Mead better than I do, Andy. Remember, we discussed it on Matfem
many many moons ago.
