Again, Catherine ColliotThélène has shown that the suspicion of universalism and Eurocentrism directed to Elias’s thought lies only on a confusion between value judgment and descriptivism (Colliot-Thélène 1997, 54). Indeed, there are two ways to instruct the trial. The first way is to argue that the model is too universalist, and to oppose cultural relativism by showing that all societies do not follow the model of the civilizing process: it is, again, a universalist interpretation of Elias’s thought, leading to a criticism of its universalism.

Nevertheless, attention has to be paid to the status of this work. The title of the last part of the book—“Synopsis: Towards a Theory of the Civilizing Processes”—calls the attention to the fact that the civilizing process is more than just the result of extensive empirical research; Elias gave it the status of a theory. In fact, it is useful to think of Elias’s theory as focusing on two distinct but interpenetrating levels. On the one hand it involves an empirically substantiated generalization about the overall trajectory of changes in personality structure, habitus and social standards in the societies of Western Europe (primarily France and Britain) from the Middle Ages until the early twentieth century.
