The authors begin this article by distinguishing judgments that an agent is praiseworthy or blameworthy from judgments that a behavior is good or bad. Their inquiry was concerned to determine which of these two kinds of judgment influences people's application of the concept of intentional action. The available evidence seems to indicate that people's application of the concept is influenced by judgments of goodness and badness without the mediation of judgments of praise and blame. 2012 APA, all rights reserved)
