The course begins with an explanation of what it means to simulate humans and societies, whatpotential advantages there may be, and the progress that has been madethus far.




The course follows this general introductionwith specific simulations that reproduce human behavioral development; exploring the relationship between the cognitive, motivational, and emotional aspects of behavior. These simulations also delve into the critical, nuanced concepts including: individual differences, language, thinking, social behavior, differences between men and women, the nature and role of family, possession and wealth, exchange of goods, the emergence of currency and organization for the production of goods, the economic and political role of the State, and historical phenomena.

Thefinal part of the course investigates the social utility of simulations when they are translated into digital environments. This section utilizes a user-friendly and motivating interface that enables anyone tobetter understand the world in whichwe live.
