Reconsidering Social Dynamics: Fundamentality and Social Simulations
AbstractWe live in a ceaselessly changing and inescapably dynamic social world. Given the inherent unpredictability of human complex systems, this brief article seeks to show that agent-based social simulations can possibly approach the ideal of a fundamental law of social dynamics, including all forms or processes of social dynamics, articulated with everyday life and action, individual or collective. This ultimately tends to recover the explanatory potential of social networks and offer an efficient research basis for the creative re-conceptualization of social dynamics.
