Theories of Social Change
• Two Dimensions of Society
Static (synchronic) perspective–

Dynamic (diachronic) perspective–
view of changing forms of society over time•
resulting in theories of periodization (e.g. as •
epoches, stages of evolution)
historical vs. evolutionary models •
example: classic Marxist versus functionalist •
models of evolution
• Classical Models of Social Change
Enlightenment: progress of scientific reason–
Marx: conflict and revolution–
Durkheim: integration and differentiation–
Weber: rationalization and domination–
1Contemporary Models of Change

Rejection of religious and feudal accounts of social life –
- “dark ages” vs. “modernity”
Discovery of “society” –
previous focus on political regimes•
new analysis of the division of labour•
social processes as explanation of possible •
political regimes
Theory of progress as a philosophy of history–
Based on the development of reason (and science •
and technology)
Creates basis for the “perfectibility of man” •
Limited understanding of social change as a •
Eurocentric tendencies: Europe vs. “noble •
savage” and “uncivilized”, “primitive peoples
3Classical Models II: Marx on

processes of modernity for Weber
different than psychological rationalization (Freud)–
refers to instrumental rationality (or technical –
thinking and action based scientific-technical •
calculation of best means to realize pre-given ends
opposed to the substantive rationality of ends•
rationalization = cumulative effects of science, –
technology and bureaucracy with no necessary relation
to human purposes (substantive rationality, e.g. USSR,
• Modern bureaucracy as rationalization
traditional bureaucracy–
Ancient Egypt, China, etc.•
Experts: no autonomy; no necessary scientific basis•
modern bureaucracy: based on expertise & efficiency–
autonomy of civil servants makes technical •
rationality possible (modern university & science)
politics determines end; bureaucracy responsible •
for means
contemporary term = complex organization •
7Weber III: Patrimonial Domination and
• Patrimonialism
Patrimonial domination variant of traditional –
Generally refers to forms of bureaucracy based on a –
royal household (or other elites)

and rational-legal domination (the modern state)
• Updating Weber: Patrimonial
Contexts where patrimonial domination mixed with –
modernization and technical rationality
Latin American case: origins in Spanish and –
Portuguese Empires
“Revolutions” of independency introduced formal –
institutions of modernization (legal-rational
authority, democracy) but power still controlled by
traditional patrimonial elites (Mexico = the “political
class”) 8Development Studies I: Modernization
• Context of origins: post World War II
• Modernization theories
Based on unilinear model of evolution as –
convergence; focus on internal (endogenous) causes
of change
economic: inevitable stages of economic –
development (Rostow)
economic reductionism•
neglects sociocultural contexts•
sociological: (origins in functionalism)–
evolutionary theory based on process of •
differentiation: low to high (complex)
economic development has sociocultural •
politics: democracy–
culture: education, communications–
social structure: class mobility, emergence –
of a middle class
criticisms: •
based on problematic model of USA–
failure to occur in most cases–
not suitable for the classic Latin American –
9contextDevelopment Studies II: Alternative Views
• Introduction
New focus on external (exogenous) causes of change–
Internal causes/obstacles of change linked to class –
• Classical Marxist Ideology: revolutionary
Castroism: Marxism-Leninism–
Guevarism and Maosim–

• World-System theory: pioneering
globalization theory
