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.
