Abstract: 

In this chapter, we introduce a scientific methodology called "evolutionary constructive approach". That is suitable for studying dynamic features of complex systems. At first, we identify two types of simulation methodologies, realistic and constructive. The latter is especially needed to clarify complex systems, since the complex systems have distinct characteristics from objects of conventional scientific studies. We characterize such characteristics as "undecomposabilities". We show three example simulation studies using the evolutionary constructive approach. They are about 1) dynamic change of social structures, 2) language change and displacement, and 3) dynamics of communication.
