In Social Evolutionism Stephen Sanderson provide a lucid account of a body of theory that has profoundly affected both intellectual and popular assumptions about human nature, society, and behavior. He describes the prominent and controversial role that evolutionary ideas have played in the development of social theory. He demonstrates the diversity of evolutionary ideas by comparing their notions of causation, their assumptions about human progress, and the adequacy of their modes of explanation and interpretation of evidence. Although he is highly critical of some aspects of evolutionary thinking and some modes of evolutionism, Professor Sanderson shows that an evolutionary interpretation of world history contributes vital insights about the character of human social life.

Stephen K. Sanderson is currently a visiting professor of sociology at the University of California, Riverside, where he specializes in comparative-historical sociology, sociological theory, and evolutionary sociology. He is the author or editor of ten books in sixteen editions, among them Evolutionism and Its Critics: Deconstructing and Reconstructing an Evolutionary Interpretation of Human Society (Paradigm, 2007), and Revolutions: A Worldwide Introduction to Social and Political Contention (2nd ed., Paradigm, 2010).
