A friend of mine forwarded your post to me and I found it very interesting.

Nevertheless, I didn’t expect to finish it (leave it open) by Agent Based Modeling (If I am not wrong). I believe Agent-Based Modeling is still in the same category of mathematical modeling approaches that you criticized, even though in a decentralized and open ended way.

I think if we try to find an abstract ground, which acts like an stage for the underlying reasons that governs lots of disciplinary problems, for these problems that you correctly discussed, we might end to the problem of universals and how we represent the objects of interest, which in my opinion have been always based on a set theoretical idealization to the problem of universals, which demands for an arbitrarily closed-ness and consistency.

And of course, as you referred to Choice theory their solid-ness create a common language and some sort of political power which has nothing to do with its validity.

In my PhD thesis, I tried to investigate the domain of computational urban modeling in which looking from the angle of computation, there are many similarities to computational economics.

I would be very happy to discuss more on these issues with you and would be very happy if you could take a look at my thesis: http://e-collection.library.ethz.ch/eserv/eth:48219/eth-48219-02.pdf
