The present book, being a sequel to Dialectics of Force: Ontobia, is dedicated to the topics of progress and force of society - topics that may appear trivial at first sight, for a mountain of literature has been written on them. The author, however, having conscientiously presented the views on progress and force of all prominent thinkers over the past and the present, chose to follow a distinct path and formulated the criteria of progress based on entirely different scientific paradigms. Moreover, he dared to formulate the two Principles of Social Development, which are akin in their fundamental nature to the first and second laws of thermodynamics. The result is a book that is very complex in content. Nonetheless, the style of presentation used throughout most of the work makes it accessible even to those who have never read Hegel.

Author's quote: “Staying out of any given scientific paradigms – their methods and ideologies – that occur in colleges or universities, I conduct my research on an independent basis and follow the methodology of dialectic and historical materialism, but I never reject other methods if they help me to elucidate the problem. In my book, I proceed in my usual method of analysis, providing a historical overview of philosophers on the subject so that the reader can understand the complexity of this problem. I want to say right away: my approach is cardinally different from that of all my predecessors since my understanding of the nature of being is distinct from theirs. This enables me to take a different approach to the category of Force in Nature, imparting to it the same attributes possessed by the categories of Motion, Time, Space and Matter. One of the consequences of this innovation is that my definition of Progress is based on the universal criterion, the life delta of mankind. In this regard, however, the question frequently arises: why should progress generally be defined at all? In order to survive!”

This book is intended for instructors and students of philosophy and social sciences, and also for all those who are interested in problems of man and mankind.
