Ancient Views Of Society: East And West, Early Modern Views Of Society, Society: Consensus And Conflict

The concept of society is in transition due to globalization and the knowledge associated with it. Today's views of society are not altogether new, however. Rather, they are engaged with the rediscovery of the worlds of antiquity. Since the 1970s, scholars have reached to the past to explain mainstay concepts such as society.

Thus the concept of society metamorphoses while it embraces a living past.
