Social Moments are types of intentional moments that are created by the exchange of communicative acts and the consequences of these exchanges (e.g., goal adoption, delegation). For instance, suppose that John rents a car at a car rental service. When signing a business agreement, John performs a communicative act (a promise). This act creates a Social Commitment towards that organization: a commitment to return the car in a certain state, etc (the propositional content). Moreover, it also creates a Social Claim of that organization towards John with respect to that particular propositional content. Commitments/Claims always form a pair that refers to a unique propositional content.
