Features

  • Presents a field-defining research effort examining mutually enhancing collaboration between complexity science and the humanities and social sciences—areas of study not normally associated with complexity
  • Discusses about ground-breaking exploration of modeling and simulation as quantitative tools for analysis of problems defined by the humanities and social sciences
  • Provides a shining example of interdisciplinarity that crosses many fields of study

Summary

With the increased adoption of natural science tools in economics, anthropology, and political science, to name only a few social scientific fields highlighted in this volume, quantitative methods in the humanities are becoming more common. This book offers a tour of quantitative analyses, models, and simulations of humanities and social science phenomena that have been historically the purview of qualitative methods. This is the first book of its kind that deals with computer modeling in both the humanities and the social sciences, and thus, simultaneously creates and explores new ground.
