How far can real humans be abstracted away?

The model reader strikes much like economic theory with its homo economicus. How far can real humans be abstracted away? There’s the academic taint to me of “ppl follow these rules, except us, who are academic and beyond the troubled of the masses, who follow these rules we laid out and are governed by them.” When issues get into the ppl realm, even if we do follow patterns – simple answers aren’t always the best or right answers. Criminal profiling is a problem in the USA for this very reason. Oh well. I can’t fix it. Carry on discussing – I’ll get off mae podium now.
