Abstract "In dem Beitrag wird versucht, das aus dem Bereich der Physik stammende Theorem der Selbstorganisierten Kritikalität auf die Gesellschaft zu übertragen, um soziale Transformationsphänomene zu erklären. Am Beispiel des Ausbruchs des Ersten Weltkriegs wird die Erklärungskraft dieses Ansatzes beispielhaft demonstriert." (Autorenreferat)
