In this paper, we propose a model of constitutive and regulative rules in a logical multiagent framework. We analyze the relationship between these two types of rules and explain similarities between them, using the metaphor of considering social entities - like normative systems, groups and organizations - as agents and of attributing them mental attitudes as well as an autonomous behavior. We argue that while constitutive rules expressing "counts-as" relations are modelled as the beliefs of a social entities, regulative rules are modelled as their goals.

Abstract

In this paper, we propose a model of constitutive and regulative rules in a logical multiagent framework. We analyze the relationship between these two types of rules and explain similarities between them, using the metaphor of considering social entities - like normative systems, groups and organizations - as agents and of attributing them mental attitudes as well as an autonomous behavior. We argue that while constitutive rules expressing "counts-as" relations are modelled as the beliefs of a social entities, regulative rules are modelled as their goals.
