The problem of the interaction among intelligent and autonomous agents is in search of a theoretical foundation. In this paper we claim that this foundation of distributed activity, and in particular the treatment of some basic aspects of a model of sociality (the notion of common world, the reasons for having and pursuing social goals, and the functions of social behavior) presupposes and requires a theory of interdependence among the interacting systems.
