Abstract

Even if there does not yet exist a generally accepted denition of complexity, there are a number of denitions which serve well for specic purposes. Most of these can be implemented in so-called agent based models. However, authors such as Funtowicz and Ravetz (Funtowicz & Ravetz 1994; 1997) or Rosen (Rosen 1991; 1999) argue that a full understanding of complexity has to go beyond computer models. This article tries to elucidate this by means of two examples
