(f) Organised Efforts:
Co-operation is a process of social interaction which is based on the organized efforts of
individuals and groups.
Type of Co- Operation:
Different Sociologists have classified co- Operation in different some of the important types
of co- operation are the following.
Let us discuss these types of co- operation one by one.
(a) Direct Co-operation:
In the process of Co-operation when individuals and groups co-operate directly with each
other, that is called direct co-operation. There exists direct relationship among individuals and
the groups. It permits the people to do like things together because the nature of work itself
calls for the participation of men or groups in a together situation. It brings social satisfaction.
It makes the difficult tasks easy.
Travelling together, playing together, worshipping together are few important examples of
direct co-operation.
(b) Indirect Co-operation:
In the process of co-operation when people do things individually and indirectly for the
achievement of common goal that is called indirect-co-operation. Here the goal is one or
common, but the individuals perform specialized function for its attainment. This cooperation is based on the principles of division of labor and specializations of functions. So in
modern society indirect co-operation plays important role as the present technological age
requires specialization of skills and functions.
In a factory or industry all the workers do separate job to produce common things. In an
another example, the construction of a building or house is possible as the carpenters,
plumbers and masons are engaged in different activities.
