Description:
The book re-orients the way many social scientists build and work with theories, and it will prove of value to all practicing social science theorists. Because verbal formulations are insufficiently specific and mathematical formulations are often too restrictive, the author proposes a new formal language as a middle way between the two, advocating computer simulation models to allow the formulation of more dynamic theories.
