Abstract [en]

Social simulation using agent‐based models (computational social science) is an active area of research with amongst others inquiries into the role and use of norms as social coordination mechanisms. The focus has been on inter‐agent mechanisms through which individuals are influenced by social norms, resulting in dynamics of norms such as emergence and diffusion. What is lacking is an integration of models of collectiveness such as we‐intentionality to transcend the atomistic models such as rational choice, game theory, and social choice theory. Starting from an integrated model comprising a collection of psychological theories (the Consumat model) we propose extensions to this model to include a level of abstraction above the intereagent model namely the level of collectivity in which agents’individualistic decision‐making modes are replaced by models of the collective of which the agents are part.
