However, this is not a criticism of the games themselves, but of the philosophical import – the games themselves are intriguing. In conclusion, Self-Organization and the City is a stimulating book, a collection of various strands of Portugali’s work, with many ideas poking through a grandiloquent baldachin. City-1 shows how combinations of local parameters can affect global outcomes, while City-2 and City-3 look at the effect of changing either intention or behaviour in order to avoid the ‘cognitive dissonance’ of a gap between the two; the results are examined in the context of actual changes in attitudes of Jewish inhabitants to having Arab neighbours.

The Constitution of Society: Remember me on this computer. In it, Portugali proposes that trying to identify ’cause’ should be abandoned, since the trigger of a revolution may be the proverbial butterfly.


Environment and Planning B – Planning and Design Now in fact, the results do often show macroscopic predictability or we must assume they do as Portugali gives representative outputs from his experiments in his diagrams, showing the value of some variable at locations on the cellular automata grid. If you are interested in the interaction of societies and space, there are sufficient original ‘perceptions’ to make it worth exploring.

If so, though, Portugali suggests that planning should be ‘just-in-time’ portugaoi than ‘just-in-case’. Even where the experiments described are now well known, Portugali still manages to find a new interpretation or an ingenious explanation.

Amazon Renewed Refurbished products with a warranty. Challenges in network science: Portugali’s defence is that self-organisation cannot be predictive, that the models are heuristic seeking to discover and hermeneutic seeking to explain.

The major part of the book details his experiments using ‘FACS’ or free agents in a cellular space agents which are free to move and settle over a cellular-automata base. The results are interesting in that juvxl stable meme populations arise or demes – see Wrightwhile the individual memes remain unstable. His persistence also tends porthgali grate with the reader, as the eulogy to self-organisation becomes repetitive and turgescent.

Applications to infrastructures, climate, social systems and economics more.

City-4 goes further in that it encodes memes juvzl individuals where in this case a meme is a genotype that might represent ‘cultural identity’ for example. Again, as previously pointed out, it does appear fruitless to do this. This process is still advancing.


There are also caveats to the method. The book then goes on to consider decision-making in city planning as a pattern-recognition task. Population movement under extreme events more. Part V Self-Organization and Urban Revolutions is a brief section on connecting self-organisation principles to the idea of urban revolutions, in relation to the work of Childe and Lefebvre. Springer Complexity Series, Ed. However, as a whole, the book is about much more than experiments on spatially located agents.

The just-in-time planning should however consist of actual plans, albeit short-range and micro in scale, rather than letting the protugali milieu take over.
