Theory of structuration is composed with an attempt to transcend three prominent traditions of thought in sociological theory: hermeneutics or „interpretative sociologies“, functionalism and structuralism. Giddens had built his own system of concepts that were drawn upon theoretical traditions of interactionism, dramaturgy, phenomenology, ethnomethodology, structuralism, psychoanalytic theory, functionalism, and even Marxism in a certain form. Concepts of structure, system and duality of structure are the core of the theory of structuration. Although many theorists of different perspectives have addressed the notion of social structure, Giddens thinks that the theory wasn't adequately conceptualised to answer the demands of social theory. The critique of structuration theory is mostly concerned with the problem of 54 overcoming the dualism between objectivism and subjectivism, society and individuum, macro and micro analysis, and institutional and interpretative analysis. Systemised critique of Giddens's theory was given by Margaret Archer who had developed the morphogenetic approach and applied it to the problem of structure and agency. Examination of literature has shown that the theory of structuration had become a great inspiration for process study, and was until today used in the field of management and organisation study.
