Some Aspects of Sociological Theories of Social Change and Older Adults
The authors problematize the lives of the elderly in modern Slovenian society in the light of experiencing changes from a sociological point of view; when they think through sociological theories of social change about the correctness, determinability, linearity and legality tied to the question of social change as a constant even in the lives of the elderly, because the tempo and form of change in the swollen time and space vary significantly and that it is completely hopeless to try to explain the phenomenon of social change in the context of one-factor models, since social change, (not only the result of the epidemic), certainly contains and/or reintroduces an element of the past. Also because any phenomenon can be regressive in terms of certain quantifications (in terms of certain quantifications). In so doing, the authors argue that, where certain health objectives are legitimising certain health objectives for the elderly, the paths to achieving those objectives are relatively limited and that they trigger processes that are unpredictable. Through the analysis of certain sociological theories, the authors point out that the latter cannot be understood in a strictly deterministic sense, since there is always the possibility of establishing a different system of objectives and truths which, when they receive sufficient support, redefine the otherwise fluid content of progress in the lives of the elderly and for the elderly and, consequently, the course and direction of social change into which they are inept.
