Network-Oriented Modeling and Its Conceptual Foundations

Research output: Chapter in Book / Report / Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademicpeer-review


To address complexity of modeling the world’s processes, over the years in different scientific disciplines separation assumptions have been made to isolate parts of processes, and in some disciplines they have turned out quite useful. It can be questioned whether such assumptions are adequate to address complexity of integrated human mental and social processes and their interactions. In this paper it is discussed that a Network-Oriented Modeling perspective can be considered an alternative way to address complexity for modeling human and social processes.
