The Micro-level Realm of Social Reality.- The Embedding of Encounters.- Ecological and Demographic Dynamics in Encounters.- Status Dynamics in Encounters.- Role Dynamics in Encounters.- Cultural Dynamics in Encounters.- Motivational Dynamics in Encounters.- Emotional Dynamics in Encounters.- The Micro Basis of the Meso and Macro Social Realms.- Principles of Microdynamics.
Micro-level dynamics revolve around face-to-face interactions among individuals. What occurs within encounters is constrained by their embedding with corporate and categoric units and, by extension, institutional domains, stratification systems, community networks, societies, and inter-societal systems. In this Handbook, the author explores the effect of microdynamics on these larger social systems.
