Freebase

  1. Interdependence

    Interdependence is a relationship in which each member is mutually dependent on the others. This concept differs from a dependence relationship, where some members are dependent and some are not. In an interdependent relationship, participants may be emotionally, economically, ecologically and/or morally reliant on and responsible to each other. An interdependent relationship can arise between two or more cooperative autonomous participants. Some people advocate freedom or independence as the ultimate good; others do the same with devotion to one's family, community, or society. Interdependence can be a common ground between these aspirations.

Chambers 20th Century Dictionary

  1. Interdependence

    in-tėr-de-pend-ens, n. mutual dependence: dependence of parts one on another.—adj. Interdepend′ent.
