    When an agent dies, the site he/she used to occupy will be empty, and the empty sites are scarce reproductive resources for which the agents compete. The rule of reproduction varies according to the types of social systems. Hereby we propose two types of society: the patriarchy and the matriarchy. The definitions of these two social systems vary for different scholars and disciplines, and we are not going to continue the theoretical debate on it (Beechey 1979; Young 1981; Kandiyoti 1988; Walby 1990).

    When trying to determine whether someone is an agent, child or not, there are many ways to come to a conclusion. A method that I am a fan of is to define ‘agent’ and then see if the subject will fit the definition. Agent as defined by our text book, is ‘A person who acts freely and knowingly’. Free will is defined by our textbook as “the power of acting without the constraint; the ability to act at one's own will, a gift from God’. In order for this to be true, you must have the ability to make…
