===== Abstract =====

„According to affect control theory (ACT), the motivational forces underlying human social interactions can be explained through the dynamical interplay of identity and emotions. ACT is a mathematically formalized theory, which builds upon core insights from psychology (a preference for cognitive/emotional consistency, dimensional models of emotion) and sociology (social interactions as guided by culturally shared symbolic structures). A recently developed probabilistic generalization (BayesACT) opens up applications in Artificial Intelligence, Human-Computer Interaction, and Computational Social Science. I will review the basic theoretical elements, mathematical models, possible applications, and selected empirical evidence for this interdisciplinary and comprehensive theory of human social behaviour.“
