Abstract

This is a conceptual exploration of the work of some
eminent social scientists thought to be amenable to agent-based
modelling of social reality. Kemper’s status-power theory and
Hofstede’s dimensions of national culture are the central
theories. The article reviews empirical work on the case of
playing children, with a focus on field studies on pre-puberty
children in several countries. The idea is to investigate
emergence of glass ceiling phenomena1for girls among these
children. A prototype playground simulation gives a proof of
concept.2The conclusion is that applying social scientific theory
to the modelling of social reality seems a promising research
avenue.
