Abstract

Cooperation and competition are widespread forms of human behavior, both in and outside the group. Cooperation might seem a problem, as individual benefits and efforts of group members do not always coincide and it leads to disruption of the collaboration. However, the analysis of theoretical and empirical research emphasized that, cooperation costs may be diminished or overcome in case if competition is shown not inside the group, but on a higher level of the organizational hierarchy: between groups. Is it this type of competition, which may solve the social dilemma and increase collaboration inside the group and which leads to general performance of the group social benefit. Moreover, inter-group cooperation relieves moral emotions of anger and guilt, connected with violations of the cooperative norm. The differences between the concepts of competition and rivalry are highlighted.
