What's an agent?

So why is Julia such a good example of an agent, and what can we learn from her sociology? In my view, anything that calls itself an `agent' has several criteria it must pass, in one way or another, to be distinctly an agent and not something else. Let's tackle them one at a time, in outline form. First, I'll lay down the basic issues, then examine them in the light of an example such as Julia.
