Neither criticising Western social theory nor constructing an alternative kind of social theory is currently being thought of as a creative and fruitful method for social theorizing around the world today. The development of a new theoretical framework for understanding and explaining social origins and processes, both in Western and non-Western countries is therefore a relevant challenge for human-social sciences. It is also a real contribution to confront the limits of the dominant Western-based social theories on the current global academic stage. The objective of this paper is to present such a new theoretical framework: Institutional Matrices Theory (IMT), or X- & Y-Theory (Kirdina, 2001, 2003, etc.), which attempts to answer this challenge.
