What is Sarokin’s theory of social change?

ADVERTISEMENTS:

Sorokin saw all great civilisations in an endless cycle of three cultural systems:

(i) The ideational culture which is guided by supernatural beliefs and values;

(ii) The idealistic culture in which a blend of supernatural beliefs and evidence-based rationality creates the ideal society; and

ADVERTISEMENTS:

(iii) The sensate culture, in which sensations are the test of reality and the goal of life.

In his Social and Cultural Dynamics he viewed modern Western civilization as rotten; it would soon collapse, to be followed by new ideational cultures.
