Abstract
The late 20th century was a period of high productivity in ideas and theories of social sciences, in particular around the themes of welfare regimes, human security, social capital, social exclusion, and globalization. Among a rich diversity of these theories, social quality theory (thereafter SQ theory) presents a new approach that touches upon very essential parts of daily circumstances in societies. This theory is operated at both ontological and epistemological levels of theorization (Beck, Maesen v.d. and Walker, 2001: 307-360), which is both descriptive and explanatory about economic, political, juridical, sociological and environmental relations in daily circumstances. It is competitive and also compensational to other social sciences, generating a new perspective of understanding of the economic, socio-political, environmental and the cultural dimensions of human existence.
