Axiomatic approaches are an appealing method for designing fair algorithms, as they provide a formal structure for reasoning about and rationalizing individual decisions. However, to make these algorithms useful in practice, their axioms must appropriately capture social norms.

We explore this tension between fairness axioms and socially acceptable decisions in the context of cooperative game theory for the fair division of rewards.
