The dynamics of social change

Round Table

Humboldt University Berlin, Grimm Auditorium, Geschwister-Scholl-Straße 1-3

If we take seriously that progress is not just a random improvement but comes about in historical processes, the question of how social change is theorized moves center stage. Is there such a thing as logics of history? Which social theory can best account for transformation?  Is there a type of dynamics specific to progress, as opposed to other modes of change? And what is the role of revolutions? Hauke Brunkhorst, James Ingram, Chris Meckstroth and Eva von Redecker discussed these insights.
