Welcome to the Institute for the Study of the Science of Society. The Institute was started in 1994 to further the understanding of how societies change, and to help equip those fighting to change society with that knowledge. We stand on the threshold of a marvelous new world made possible by a profound technological revolution, the same technological revolution that is destabilizing capitalism and generating unprecedented levels of unemployment, homelessness, and militarism.
