The paradigm emergent from this work is shared with a number of other projects concerned with self-organizing (and self-reproducing with morphogenetic transformations) systems, including those of John Padgett (Florentine renaissance and markets), Peter Bearman (cooperative networks, generalized exchange, transformations of institutional form and the structure of career biographies), Ronald Breiger (generalized exchange, ...), Siegwart Lindenberg (conditions for the emergence of social solidarity), to name a few.
In my own fieldwork with Lilyan Brudner, the Austrian case represents self-organization of a multi-class system, while the Tlaxcalan case (work jointly with Michael Schnegg) represents issues of emergent solidarity in a one-class system.
