Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to show the features of agent-based model and discuss its progress in sociology. First, this paper will show the features of agent-based model with comparison to the traditional methods in sociology such like mathematical modeling and quantitative analysis. Next, this paper will confirm the progress of agent-based model in sociology, reviewing topics such as (a) the emergence of social order and (b) the emergence of social structure. Last, this paper will discuss the topic which is important in sociology but unexplored in agent-based model.
