An eye for an eye: Reciprocity and the calibration of redress

  • Andrew Dellis (a1) and David Spurrett (a2)

Abstract

General systems for reciprocity explain the same phenomena as the target article's proposed revenge system, and can explain other cooperative phenomena. We need more reason to hypothesise a specific revenge system. In addition, the proposed calculus of revenge is less sensitive to absolute magnitudes of revenge than it should be.
