This theoretical extension takes the general form of setting up a developmental scheme by which societies or macro-structures are purportedly moving from one end of a continuum to the other. This scheme then allows a claim that the observations and phenomena observed in the construction of the received theories represent a more “developed” phase, or toward the developed extreme of the continuum. A theory is then proposed: that societies toward the less developed end of the continuum show patterns and behaviors different from those in the more developed end because they are less developed.
