Proudhon worked out his idea of Anarchism and mutualism, without State interference.
One has given to this mode of activity the name of mutualism.
The chief breakdown is in dealing with the new relations that arise from the mutualism, the interdependence of our time.
mutualism is symbiosis in which both members benefit by the association.
Parasitism, commensalism, mutualism, exist with animals among the different species.
mutualism mu·tu·al·ism (myōō'chōō-ə-lĭz'əm)
A symbiotic relationship in which both species benefit.
A symbiotic relationship in which each of the organisms benefits. ◇ In obligate mutualism the interacting species are interdependent and cannot survive without each other. The fungi and algae that combine to form lichen are obligate mutualists. ◇ In the more common facultative mutualism the interacting species derive benefit without being fully dependent. Many plants produce fruits that are eaten by birds, and the birds later excrete the seeds of these fruits far from the parent plant. While both species benefit, the birds have other food available to them, and the plants can disperse their seeds when the uneaten fruit drops. Compare amensalism, commensalism, parasitism.
