Four frames and a funeral: Commentary on Bermúdez (2022)

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 45:e225 (2022)
  Copy   BIBTEX


There is much to like in Bermúdez's analysis, yet it is incomplete and at times problematic for social decision making and, by extension, interpersonal conflict. Here I explain how four frames – gains, losses, me, we – operate in conjunction and how humans gravitate toward a “me–loss” frame that, without intervention, leads to a breakdown of cooperation and an arguably tragic funeral of the commons.
