Trust in a Complex World

Charles Heckscher

Oxford University Press

This chapter argues for the importance of community in general as the foundation of trust, essential to resolving the enormously complex problems we face. It also outlines the three basic types of community: the traditional, which builds trust on moral conformity; the modern, or associational, which insists on individual moral independence; and the interactive, or “rich,” which embraces interdependence and seeks mutual understanding.

Keywords:   community, trust, values, relations, social complexity, dynamic density
