Abstract


Daar word van die standpunt uitgegaan dat in 'n tydperk wanneer kommunisme en daarmee saam die marxisme, feitlik tot niet gegaan het, dit moontlik nodig is om die verskynsel van verandering in heroorweging te neem. Geskiedenis word gedefinieer as die studie van die mens in tyd-ruimtelike verband. Die voorstel is dat 'n bewussyn van verandering as 'n strukturele en proses-georiënteerde fenomeen tot nuwe interpretasies aanleiding kan gee. Strukturele verandering is enersyds verwant aan ruimte en kan gesien word as seisoenale en sekwensiële verandering. Andersyds is verandering as proses verbind met tyd wat weer in 'n integrale en voortdurende konteks beskou kan word.

It is constituted that in an era when communism, and by the same token marxism, have literally become obsolete, it is perhaps necessary to reconsider the phenomenon of change. History is defined as the study of man in a time-spatial context. The suggestion is made that an awareness of change as a structural and process orientated phenomenon can lead to new interpretations. Structural change is, on the one hand, related to space and can be perceived in seasonal and sequential change. On the other hand change as a process is related to time or chronology which can be considered in an integral and continual context.
