Cross-Acceptance: The Coevolution of Processes

The chapter introduced here plays a central role in the interpretation of cross-acceptance. In reconstructing the procedures of the state planning process, a process-oriented and evolutive perspective has already been stressed in the previous chapter. However, their evolutive dimension has been followed only with reference to the formal aspects of the process, thus addressing only one dimension of their internal dynamics and isolating it from other dimensions of the process. As for the plans, they have similarly been treated as situated outcomes of a complex and evolving deliberative process, however analyzing their contingent definitions as static frames'. observing, so to speak, the static properties of the representations and images embodied in each of their stages.
