Structural Change

Question

“The idea of continuity is implied in social change”, explain the statement in brief.

Answer

Social change is a process, in the sense that it involves a series of events over a period of time. The idea of continuity is implied in it and shows a sequence of operations that bring about change.

The notion of process (of social change) indicates two chief dimentions of social change:

1. its nature and 2. direction. While the nature of change reveals content of change, the direction speaks about the line in which it is moving.
