Don't Come Home, America: The Case against Retrenchment

Stephen G. Brooks, G. John Ikenberry, William C. Wohlforth
2013 International Security  
According to many of the most prominent security studies scholars-and indeed most scholars who write on the future of U.S. grand strategy-the answer is an unambiguous yes.  ...  After sixty-ªve years of pursuing a globally engaged grand strategy-nearly a third of which transpired without a peer great power rival-has the time ªnally come for retrenchment?  ...  Proliferation optimism rests on assumptions of rationality and narrow security preferences. In social science, however, such assumptions are inevitably probabilistic.  ...

A Note on Directions for Cumulativity

Philippe Besnard
2014 IfColog journal of logics and their applications (FLAP)  
This paper explores models for this setting in terms of dynamic logics for information-driven agency.  ...  The normative realm involves deontic notions such as obligation or permission, as well as information about relevant actions and states of the world.  ...  In doing so, we obtained a suggestive framework for the analysis of deontic notions that connects many strands in the literature on agency.  ...

The Rationality of Science [chapter]

Paul K. Feyerabend
1976 Can Theories be Refuted?  
Feyerabend seems somewhat more restrained than the early Kuhn in his view of the extent of actual incommensurability.  ...  For our purposes the salient difference between these logics is that the most contested of all classical laws of logic, the Law of Excluded Middle, 'A or not-A', holds in classical logic but not in intuitionist  ...

The social benefits of balancing creativity and imitation: Evidence from an agent-based model

With the capacity for chained outputs, the effect of social regulation could indeed be maintained indefinitely. The results are discussed in light of empirical data.  ...  In Experiment One we systematically introduced individual differences in creativity, and observed a trade-off between the ratio of creators to imitators, and how creative the creators were.  ...  consequences in the real world.  ...

System Dynamics Modeling in International Relations

Ali Fisunoğlu
2018 All Azimuth A journal of foreign policy and peace  
Although this is true and systems thinking helps us survive and thrive in this complex world, there are other contributions of the system dynamics approach to the academic and policy worlds.  ...  To answer this question, we can focus on the classic argument that we live in a world that is rapidly changing. Things are accelerating, and relationships are becoming increasingly complex.  ...  Introduction With the proliferation of inexpensive computing power, the role of modeling and simulations in social science has been growing at a dramatic pace.  ...
