Varieties of Social-time

  • Georges Gurvitch


Social-time is the time of convergency and divergency of movements of the total social phenomena, whether the total social phenomena are global, group or micro-social and whether or not they are expressed in the social structure. The total social phenomena both produce and are products of social-time. They give birth to social-time, move and unfold in it … Social-time thus cannot be defined without defining the total social phenomenon.
