      Forum members might be interested in another source for perspective on both
      the realism-nominalism tension and the issue of historical causation.

      Recently I picked up Pitirim Sorokin's one-volume abridgement of Social and
      Cultural Dynamics, and was interested to note that Sorokin considers both of
      these issues in the course of his study.

      The realism-nominalism tension is considered specifically in two chapters of
      part Three on "Fluctuations of Fundamental Principles" and the issue of
      historical causation is addressed by the theoretical perspective of the work
      as a whole (Sorokin credits the cultural system more than the economic or
      social systems with being the locus of fundamental change--an interesting
      perpsective for "culture warriors")

        Forum members might be interested in another source for perspective on both
        the realism-nominalism tension and the issue of historical causation.

        Recently I picked up Pitirim Sorokin's one-volume abridgement of Social and
        Cultural Dynamics, and was interested to note that Sorokin considers both of
        these issues in the course of his study.

        The realism-nominalism tension is considered specifically in two chapters of
        part Three on "Fluctuations of Fundamental Principles" and the issue of
        historical causation is addressed by the theoretical perspective of the work
        as a whole (Sorokin credits the cultural system more than the economic or
        social systems with being the locus of fundamental change--an interesting
        perpsective for "culture warriors")
