The two elements of (1) random variation’ and (2) selection ‘ are the drivers of Darwin’s dynamic model. As the environment changes, or a subpopulation becomes geographically isolated, there follows a rapid emergence of random variations, which would otherwise not survive. This is the first aspect – the presence of anarchic directionless mutations. (In our case: new social practices, strata, habits, signs, discourses shoot up – all exemplifying new sociological species).
Then the second aspect sets in. Here Darwin was inspired by the political-economist T. Malthus: through a struggle for survival a process of selection takes place between the new mutations. Only the mutation best fitted to the new conditions will survive – that is, an adaptation takes place. This is the moment of contention and conflict. Slowly a new subpopulation solidifies as it comes to dominate, and given enough time and change it will evolve into a distinct new species. (In our case: new specialists representing new knowledge have settled and dominate their cultural field).
