Substantial new trends in social sciences, organizational studies, and human evolution provide ever-finer mapping of the diversity of human motivations, and the substantial, stable deviations of actual human beings, in actual social settings from the predictions of rational self-interest that underlay traditional mechanism design. These findings and theoretical developments suggest the need for explicit integration of these important insights into collaborative systems design, and recommend the development of a generalized approach to cooperative human systems design.
