Pitirim Sorokin: Prophet of Spiritual Renewal; His Theory of History

Father James Thornton

Number XII of Monographic Supplement Series

“While the works of Professor Sorokin were renowned and celebrated fifty or sixty years ago, they are now largely banished from academia and stylish intellectual circles. His theories and predictions are, quite frankly, a serious embarrassment to those who wish, at any cost, to push contemporary society towards a ‘paradise on earth’ resembling George Orwell's 1984 or Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. However, people still capable of independent thought must, in the opinion of this writer, resist ongoing attempts by arbiters of so-called intellectual fashion to consign to the proverbial ‘memory hole’ the works of upholders of tradition and decency. Resistance to such forces, and to their perverse desire to censor morally sound ideas, is particularly obligatory for tradition-minded Orthodox Christians, since, if our opponents were to have their way, we and all that we stand for would be placed in that very same ‘memory hole.’ Consequently, now that more than a half century has elapsed since the publication of Pitirim Sorokin's most famous book, Social and Cultural Dynamics, it behooves us to review his theories, and to consider carefully their implications for ourselves, our Faith, our families, our country, and the society in which we live.”
