INSTITUTIONS, AND RESOURCES:
THE BASES FOR TRANSFORMATION OF MENTALITY
Tsennosti i Smysly, 2010 №5 (8), P.50-67.
The presented conceptual apparatus integrates mental and social realities, groups, institutions, positions, resources, and interactive rituals, macro-, meso, micro, and ultra-micro- levels of social interaction. The apparatus is elaborated specially to deal with mental dynamics (interiorization of symbols and frames as schemes of reality, reframing, etc.), social dynamics (changes of definite groups, institutions, hierarchies, networks, markets), and historical dynamics (crucial events, core processes, and shifts of types of social entities). Several basic dynamical principles which link mental and social processes are formulated.
