The post-cognitive theories provide frameworks within which dynamic phenomenon can be conceptualized. The activities can be human-centric or machine-centric or a combination of both. It is interesting to study how the frameworks compare and contrast in a specific context. In this paper, four post-cognitive theories are compared to elucidate their commonalities and differences in the context of collaboration. Components pertinent to each theory are identified for analysis. Using the same context to illustrate different theories will provide better insights into the abstract notions constituting each theory. Each of these theories is profound in its own right and due to their individualistic makeup, a full-fledged comparison will be a daunting task. The scope of this paper is limited to the aspect of collaboration in relation to these theories. The analysis should provide a better perspective on collaborations from a theoretical standpoint.
