Although the concept of entropy has been under discussion for one & half centuries, its philosophical depth has still not been properly explored & it is still one of the most complicated & controversial concepts of science. Its application to the study of social processes has started only in recent decades. The author provides those who are interested in social studies, but not familiar with physics, with comprehensive explanation of concept of entropy. He introduces the concept of potential order, which characterizes the ability of an open system to become orderly or to create order in another system. In chapters on economics the author shows that the low-entropic component of an economy should not be treated in theory the same way as the purely energetic component. On the basis of this, the author shows the limitations for the use of variational calculus in economics & discusses the maximization of utility function. In his analysis of the monetary measurement of potential order, the author shows that some important problems in economy come for the fact that the same measuring device-money-is used for both- the purely energetic & low-entropic components of the economy.Chalidze, Valery is the author of 'Entropy Demystified Potential Order, Life and Money' with ISBN 9781581127683 and ISBN 1581127685.
