  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 (...)

  10. Rainer Hegselmann (1988). Wozu könnte Moral gut sein? oder Kant, das Gefangenendilemma und die Klugheit. Grazer Philosophische Studien 31:1-28.
    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 (...)
