Apocalypse World/Gaming and The Social Sciences

    So after our usin’ yr learnin’ episode,

    Rob Bohl suggested I write up a thing on how, exactly, I’m using social science to formulate my Apocalypse World countdown clocks, along with in gaming in general. Here is part one of that. Parts two and three to follow. Enjoy!

  1. Sweet! I was hoping to see something like this. I’m taking a couple of sociology classes as related field study over the next year. Any suggested reading to form a cursory knowledge base Todd?

  2. Actually, yes. Check out Bowling Alone by Robert Putnam this summer. It’s not the best book in the world, and a lot of people flatly disagree with some of his arguments, but it’s very readable, aimed at a mass audience (i.e. he explains what sociology is in great detail) and really gets to the heart of what sociologists try and do.

  3. Thanks, I’ll be sure to take a look at it. Btw that is a damn interesting article.
