This essay describes a potentially useful framework for analyzing social and institutional change. It draws heavily on insights from evolutionary and complexity theories, and employs explanatory models that are based on the mathematical analysis of complex dynamical systems. The proposed framework goes beyond the boundaries of the traditional social sciences, and therefore has the distinct advantage of enabling us to look at social and institutional change from a much wider theoretical perspective.
