This paper expands our two already published papers on socio-cultural change in diachronic ways. Our proposed approach to socio-cultural change was called the “Proactive-interactive-symbiotic approach to long-term cultural change”, also known as the “Symbiotic School of socio-cultural change” in short. These two papers were published by us in the years 2017 and 2018 respectively, and the concepts and the ideals propounded therein, we referred to multiple times in several of our downstream publications. The term diachronic is concerned with the structured and systematic study of the way in which some issue or phenomenon has developed and evolved through time. Thus, both synchronic and diachronic approaches go hand in hand in investigating any given phenomena. We had also reviewed every theory of socio-cultural change under the sun; most proposed by European and American scholars. These theories have been discussed in a great level of detail in these aforesaid papers. However, as we observed and noted, these theories are somewhat Eurocentric in orientation, and do not seem to take into account and consideration, real-world date culled from different parts of the world, and may resultantly have limited practical utility. Our approach is much more data friendly, and can be studied more meaningfully and usefully with exceptions as well, as proposed in our paper on the Sociological Ninety-ten rules. Diachronic extensions also grant and endow such theories with expanded real-world utility and power. The use of such theories can now be greatly expanded, and they can be used in much more productive ways.
