Concept definition: A concept associated with evolutionary theories of history and with structural functionalism. Societies are seen as moving from the simple to the complex via a process of social change based on structural differentiation." http://www.eionet.europa.eu/gemet/concept?cp=7791&langcode=e...
"Social differentiation: In ST, the process by which specialised roles and institutions develop to handle specific functions previously carried out by one role or institution. For instance education, health care, welfare and social control now all have specialist institutions, whereas the religious organizations formerly looked after many of these functions and have therefore lost much of their social importance.
