the meaning and form of the elements in the constitution of the purposeful social space

every purposeful social space contains elements that in concert make up a social space in addition to the people that are part of it. these are explicit and implicit ways of behaviour, rules, intuitions, mechanisms that guide, support and establish a purposeful social space. 

Investigating these elements can help build spaces that make a more sound trade-offs between the individual and the whole than current forms of organisations. it is an exercise to go beyond the current thinking and language to describe organisations and their constructive attributes. 

this page describes the relationships between the various elements and how they relate to the bigger picture of the purposeful social space.
