Current business trends, policy markets, production requirements, etc., have created the need for integrating Multi Agent Systems (MAS). In the agent-specialized literature, we have found very little work about MAS methodologies that allow us to build MAS which is made up of two or more MASs. We think that several difficult challenges for automated systems can be tackled by giving full meaning to the MAS concept: adopting a recursive definition of MASs. In this work we outline the basis for a recursive agent oriented methodology for large-scale MAS.
