Change is the most commanding characteristic of human society. Human society, like the whole history of life on Earth, is forever waxing and waning, rising and falling. It is never static. Yet despite the constancy of change, it is a state of being that is imperfectly understood. There is no consensus about the driving force in human society, or about the dynamic process by which it is constantly being transformed. The Dynamic Society is an enigma. In order to discover why this is so we need to survey the various attempts made to deal with this issue of issues. We need to investigate the stories told by those who live within the shadow of the Tower of Babel.
