Abstract

Life being in its essential basis a natural event, is subject to perpetual dynamic change. Sociality, as an undeniable part of human life, is certainly not exempt of this changing dynamic tempo. Therefore, social change is observed in all social gatherings in one way or another. This, in its normal evolution, is usually a gradual change, where almost all the components of a certain social group change in a more or less parallel and harmonious tempo.
