Abstract Der Autor erläutert die Bedeutung der kinetischen Analyse zur Langzeitbeobachtung historischer Prozesse am Beispiel des Gesundheitswesens und der Interaktionen zwischen Arzt, Patient und Apotheker. Die kinetische Analyse umfasst folgende methodische Vorgehensweise: Spezifizierung eines typischen Modellsystems als Untersuchungsgegenstand (1); Identifikation des sozialen Systems oder seiner Teilsysteme durch die kinetische Analyse historischer Prozesse mittels einer Prüfsonde (2); Auffindung von Parametern der Verlaufsregulierung (3); Ermittlung der genauen Parameterwerte (4). (ICI)

'The analysis of social systems by functionalist is to be selected as a-historical and pure interpretation, even subjective. The empirical analysis of social systems, e.g. complex health care systems, necessarily demands the analysis of social processes in history. But how to measure them, if the object of measurement is under change all over? The paper describes the kinetic methodology, formulated since 1972 and successfully practiced in a couple of studies. The construction of the instruments is shown as well as the theoretical deduction of results. Applications of this method are given, cited from scientific monographs on social history of medicine, quantification in pharmacy, body culture and professions.' (author's abstract)
