Principles of Microdynamics

  • Jonathan H. Turner


In the previous chapters, I develop 29 highly abstract theoretical principles that, I believe, will help explain much of what occurs in the micro realm of social reality. As is evident, I have consistently introduced the properties of the meso and macro realms into these principles on microdynamics; and so, many of the linkages among the three realms of reality are specified theoretically, although these principles on linkages among realms of reality will remain incomplete without reference to the additional principles Vols. 1 and 3 of Theoretical Principles of Sociology. Together, the three volumes provide a robust theory of the dynamics of human interaction and organization that add­resses the long-problematic issue of the linkages among levels of social reality.
