  1. Rainer Hegselmann & Oliver Will (2013). From Small Groups to Large Societies: How to Construct a Simulator? [REVIEW] Biological Theory 8 (2):185-194.
    There seems to be an overarching historical process in which life in small groups has evolved into life in large societies. This paper describes the design of a simulator for the study of that process. The simulator is named after David Hume (1711–1776), who presented a rich, informal, and still modern theory about the problems, useful inventions, and driving mechanisms in the evolution from small groups to large societies. HUME1.0 is a simulator that is meant to cover the interplay of (...)

  2. Ulrich Krause & Rainer Hegselmann (2009). Deliberative Exchange, Truth, and Cognitive Division of Labour: A Low-Resolution Modeling Approach. Episteme 6 (2):130-144.
    This paper develops a formal framework to model a process in which the formation of individual opinions is embedded in a deliberative exchange with others. The paper opts for a low-resolution modeling approach and abstracts away from most of the details of the social-epistemic process. Taking a bird's eye view allows us to analyze the chances for the truth to be found and broadly accepted under conditions of cognitive division of labour combined with a social exchange process. Cognitive division of (...)

    In the following we study the evolution of support networks among egoists who differ widely in their degree of neediness, are free to choose their partners, and do so in opportunistic ways. No central authority is involved. The question we address is to what degree and under what aspect it shapes the structure of emerging solidarity networks whether we model egoistic actors as rational actors in a game theoretical sense or as adaptive actors, i.e. learning beings following a simple learning (...)

  8. Rainer Hegselmann (1994). Humboldt’s Argument Against the Welfare State: A Reconstruction in Terms of Game Theory. Vienna Circle Institute Yearbook 2:229-243.
    In 1792 Wilhelm von Humboldt wrote his treatise Ideen zu einem Versuch, die Gränzen der Wirksamkeit des Staates zu bestimmen . The treatise supports a notion of the state one would nowadays call libertarian. Seen against the backdrop of his time, characterized by far-reaching governmental regulations, Humboldt’s work must be considered a radical manifesto of deregulation.1 Analyzing various fields of potential governmental activity, Humboldt pleaded in favor of a minimum of governmental intervention.

  9. Rainer Hegselmann (1993). Order and Chaos in Nature and Society. Chaos and Music. Vienna Circle Institute Yearbook 1:296-298.
    Chaos, order and the transitions between them — these are issues which are being intensively debated in many different sciences at present. These debates are by no means restricted to the natural sciences. Numerous popularizations confirm the existence of a broad following which is intensely interested in the phenomenon. This provided the background against which the Institute Vienna Circle organized a symposion, as international as it was interdisciplinary, entitled “Order and Chaos in Nature and Society”, held on 18 – 21 (...)

    Die Erfahrung eines Konflikts zwischen Forderungen der Moral und kluger Verfolgung des Eigeninteresses ist elementar. In Gefangenen-Dilemma-Situationen hat es für die Beteiligten katastrophale Konsequenzen, wenn alle klug ihr Eigeninteresse verfolgen. Hingegen kann in solchen Situationen jeder unter dem Gesichtspunkt seines Eigeninteresses besser gestellt werden, wenn sich jeder von Forderungen der Moral leiten läßt. Eine Funktion der Moral kann daher sein, die Individuen gerade vor den Fallen der Klugheit zu schützen.

    Investigations in meta-theoretical topics such as the definability of disposition terms or the explication of qualitative and quantitative concepts of confirmation, as well as discussions of various systems of modal logic, e.g., deontic logic, often deal with a number of well known paradoxes. In general, classical logic is used in deriving the paradox of the ravens, Goodman's paradox, the paradoxes of derived obligation, etc. The questions whether these paradoxes depend essentially on the use of classical logic and whether they can (...)

    Ausgehend von einer Analyse des "Begründungsstreits", der in den letzten Jahren im Anschluß an H. Alberts Kritik des methodischen Prinzips der Begründung v.a. in der deutschen Philosophie geführt worden ist, werden zunächst die Positionen von K. O. Apel und J. Habermas einer immanenten methodischen Kritik unterzogen. Beide Programme erweisen sich als undurchführbar. Ausgehend von einer Präzisierung des Begriffes "Begründung" wird durch systematische Einführung begründungstheoretischer Termini ein begriffsiches Instrumentarium vorgeschlagen, das eine Rekonstruktion von Begründungssituationen erlauben soll. Mit seiner Hilfe werden die (...)
