Description

This work focuses on the cyclical structure of the patterns of social change. According to the Wave Principle, patterns of five waves move in the direction of a trend and three waves move against it. The author presents a theory of agency and sociality that serves as a basis for the wave-like character of social change and the individuality of the component waves of the pattern.
