Agent-based modelling on a computer appears to have a special role to play in the development of social science.

Agent-based modelling on a computer appears to have a special role to play in the development of social science. It offers a means of discovering general and applicable social theory, and grounding it in precise assumptions and derivations, whilst addressing those elements of individual cognition that are central to human society. However, there are important questions to be asked and difficulties to overcome in achieving this potential.

If a social decision has to be made regarding a number of independent issues, then it makes a crucial difference . has been shown to have relevance in many contexts in the behavioural sciences.

If a social decision has to be made regarding a number of independent issues, then it makes a crucial difference if the issues are voted on singly or jointly. It is shown that the platform that takes on each issue the least preferred alternative may be Pareto superior, . preferred by every voter, to the platform which takes the most popular alternative on each issue. In the first part of this paper, we prove the conjecture that the paradox probability tends to unity as n → ∞ for all m(m ≧ 3): however, this limit is seen to be attained very slowly when m is small.

The opening chapters take the reader on a tour through the development of simulation methodologies in the fields of artificial life and population biology, then demonstrates the growing popularity and relevance of these methods in the social sciences.

Agent-based modelling on a computer appears to have a special role to play in the development of social science. It offers a means of discovering general and applicable social theory, and grounding it in precise assumptions and derivations, whilst addressing those elements of individual cognition that are central to human society. However, there are important questions to be asked and difficulties to overcome in achieving this potential. What differentiates agent-based modelling from traditional computer modelling? Which model types should be used under which circumstances? If it is appropriate to use a complex model, how can it be validated? Is social simulation research to adopt a realist epistemology, or can it operate within a social constructionist framework? What are the sociological concepts of norms and norm processing that could either be used for planned implementation or for identifying equivalents of social norms among co-operative agents? Can sustainability be achieved more easily in a hierarchical agent society than in a society of isolated agents? What examples are there of hybrid forms of interaction between humans and artificial agents? These are some of the sociological questions that are addressed.
