Relevance and Fecundity of the Concept of «Cultural Lags». A note on Ogburn - William F. Ogburn’s theory of «Cultural Lags» has suffered from misinterpretation and simplification in sociological literature. As a consequence it has been considered outdated, notwithstanding the fact that it is a structural interpretation of social change and not, perfunctorily, a description of two «cultures». The author, already conscious of such misinterpretations, presented a brief essay, published two years before his death, on suggestions and more specific hermeneutic statements regarding the theory. These uncover its usefulness as a conceptually versatile instrument, extremely important for the understanding of a series of phenomena that appear deeply rooted to the processes of globalization, with particular reference to dynamics of encounter among different historical and cultural configurations.
