A site about social process and social change ...

A set of interactive web resources for scholars, students, and other professionals who share an interest in the foundations of the social sciences, the philosophy of history, and social change. It is hoped that these topics will draw participants from Asia, Africa, Europe, the Middle East, Australasia, and the Americas who are able to bring the perspectives of their societies their societies into the discussion.

Welcome to the gateway to UnderstandingSociety.

There is a great deal of interest throughout the world on the subject of better understanding the large social forces that affect us today.  Most basically -- can we think more clearly about the basic conceptual and methodological assumptions we make about social science inquiry? And can we arriva at more compelling foundations for thinking about what social progress in the twenty-first century will require? 

This site provides a gateway to the UnderstandingSociety blog, the UnderstandingSociety Twitter and Facebook feeds, a number of interviews with innovative social scientists, and a number of my publications and papers.
