Abstract

This paper introduces the concept of social relations network as an important element in the process of building a civilisation. In general terms, any human society embarking on a civilizing process needs, among other things, four integral ingredients namely people, ideas, objects and social relations network. The realm of persons provides the human capital and talents. The realm of ideas offers worldviews, ideologies, philosophies, visions, concepts, values, and perspectives. Whereas, the realm of objects makes available things, tools, products, know-how, instruments and the necessary needs of a society. However, these three important realms remain mere isolated elements in the absence of the fourth realm that synthesises and articulates them in the form of a civilising project leading to the development of society. This fourth realm is but the social relations network that integrates and puts persons, ideas and objects together in a bid to build a civilisation. This paper uses textual analysis to examine the notion of social relations network and its function in the process of building civilisation. It draws a special attention to the views of Malik Bennabi and his understanding of and approach to the notion of social relations network and how it works in making a civilisation.

Keywords: Social Relations Network, Ideas, Persons, Objects, Civilization.
