Summary

The task of social theory and especially of general social dynamics is to perceive patterns and regularities in our image of the four dimensional structure consisting of all human beings as they occupy three dimensions of space and one of time. Although the existing divisions of the social sciences exist for good historical reasons, there is a conceptual scheme for the study of the social system with the social sciences broken differently. The critical question, however, is whether it is possible in the next 50 years to mobilize an intellectual resource behind the problem of developing a general interdisciplinary social science. To parallel this there is the possibility that an amalgamation of history and geography would provide more refined study and improvement of the record of the space-time continuum. (Author/VLW)
