We are sharing animals. We need to share to achieve our goals. Perhaps uniquely among species, we value sharing as an end in itself.
We share agency when we act together, working with rather than around or alongside each other. We also share benefits and burdens (including responsibilities). We also speak of sharing attitudes, emotions and experiences. In what sense are such things shared? And what are the connections between these sorts of sharing? In particular, does the sharing of agency entail the sharing of attitudes, reasons or perspectives? And does it entail, or normatively require, a sharing of burdens and benefits? What are the conceptual connections between "sharing out" (apportioning) "sharing with" (co-ownership) and "sharing in" (participation)?
