Other-Condemning Anger = Blaming Accountable Agents for Frustrated Intentions

Abstract : This paper focuses on the other-condemning anger emotion whichis a social type of anger triggered by the behaviour of other agents. Other-condemning anger responds to frustration of committed goalsby others, and motivates goal-congruent behavior towards the blame-worthy agents. Understanding this type of anger is crucial formodelling human behavior in social settings as well as design-ing socially aware artificial systems. We summarize some exist-ing psychological theories on other-condemning anger and advo-cate building logical frameworks to formally specify this emotion.We believe that a formalization should provide a precise conceptu-alization and characterization of other-condemning anger in termsof social and cognitive concepts such as beliefs, goals, intentions,controllability, accountability, and blameworthiness.
