Cascade theory is a speculative, non-polemical enterprise seeking a more robust intellectual substrate for examining social behavior.

Precursors include:

  • Complexity theory, chaos theory and associated investigations of non-linear dynamic systems
  • The immanent “non-philosophy” of Francois Laruelle
  • The truncated Freudo-Marxism of Wilhelm Reich and its applications to fascism in particular

Cascade theory’s primary objects of investigation are hierarchy, cultural change and syncretism.
