On Aernout’s LCN2 Brainstorm contribution

This link hides my LCN2 Brainstorm sheets. Actually, it are the notes pages with the text I meant to present. Main points are

  • the alpha-beta (crudely: science/economy-anthropology/law) divide is persistent as a result of social/psychological universals that are difficult to ignore
  • a lingua franca could be aimed for in the form of the requirement (to all four disciplines that need consider a complex situation concurrently) of translating theory into agent-based model (Netlogo). This will unveil the different approached to parameter-space reduction with discipline-specific assumptions, and opens the debate to discuss these (and prevents to ignore them). That this might work is an empirical proposition which can be investigated here.
  • the suggestion is further that MOOCs might be an efficient approach to creating sufficient skills in usingĀ  this lingua franca over the disciplines. What should be in them might be usefully discussed here too.
  • finally I solicited some help by looking second-opinion wise at the e-Codex project. Here, you find a link to an article presented at the CCS16 Satellite on Law and Complexity by Velicogna and Steigenga on the coplexity issues of the project.


This site is for discussing how four different disciplines (science, economics, social science and law) can cooperate usefully in improving our understanding of complex situations that result from the behavior of communities of deliberate agents (CoDAs, a subset of complex adative networked systems (CANSs)). I think we can best be completely free in the beginning. […] Continue reading →
