Abstract

Volterra analysis of economic and social behavior reveals a striking uniformity in the way structures behave. Including man, socially a single unit but intrinsically already a complex structure.

In this paper the analysis is focused on "deviant" behavior, showing that technically it is not different from "normal" behavior. The labeling seems to be basically determined by the dominant value system. The paper should be seen as an exploratory exercise to determine the limits of application of the Volterra-Lotka equations and paradigm.
