IMT: Social Theory as
Methodology for Sociological
Disciplines
• Originally IMT had been developed as
conceptual scheme in sociology. IMT is mainly
based on Structural Functionalism and
Evolutionary Theory sociological paradigms
• IMT can be considered as sociological theory
in “its broad understanding” or as a social
theory because it is becoming a part of broad
research areas of social sciences– sociology,
economics, political science etc.
The main theses of IMT are presented in written
version and on website www.kirdina.ru

Main Courses of
ITM Application -1
• Explanation and predictable opportunities
of IMT for social dynamics in modern
Russia.
(“No matter how unique can Russia seem,
this uniqueness can be considered as one of
manifestations of general regularities. The
institutional matrices theory suggests the
adequate methodology and terminology
which can be the basis for correct
correlation of Russian evolution with the
theory and practice of global development”,
Anokhin M., 2002).

Main Courses of
ITM Application -2
• New “episteme of epoch” (in sense of
Michel Foucault) connected with selforganization or synergetic ideas about
emerging of “the order out of chaos”
(Prigogine, Stengers, 1984)
• IMT ideas of X- and Y-institutions’ selfreproduction according to material and
technological conditions of nations are
supported as embodiment of new
synergetic approach.

IMT: Not National But
“Trans-national”?
• Numerous IMT tests in theoretical and
empirical research in Russian social
sciences are continuing
• Geography of IMT application is gradually
spanning (Ukraine, China, Japan, South
Korea…)
• IMT (Institutional Matrices Theory) has a
chance to become not only national but
trans-national social theory in the future.
