The purpose of this paper is to respond to a number of developments in the past 15 years in the areas of NDM and macrocognition. In my view, these developments necessitate the definition of a new systems level, extending and modifying Newell’s (1990) “bands of cognition”. I will argue that what has been called ‘microcognition’ may best be viewed as a field compatible with the ‘cognitive band’, whereas ‘macrocognition’ is compatible with Newell’s ‘rational band’. Recent developments in various fields necessitate the introduction of a next systems level, the ‘transaction level’. I will discuss the interconnection amongst the various levels. Several studies using social network analysis are discussed that illustrate the utility of adding this new level to our current repertoire of methods.
