This paper sketches a theoretical framework considering the essential facets of human social relations as fixed in epistemic, deontic, and emotional orders, each of which also relate to action recognition. This frame enables to explain regular equivocation in action recognition and to render relationship negotiations comprising an intricate interface between emotion, knowledge, and power.
