We are products of structures like bureaucracy and hierarchy (Taylor) Stability People seek stability. Consensus and shared values are a normal state. Change threatens society (Compte) Conflict People seek change. Change + tensions = growth and cleansing. Diversity is a preferred situation (Foucault) Positivism The Truth is known, there is one answer. Objective laws govern society Patterns exist that explain cause and effect (Laws can be made).
