The author’s aim is to outline a non-arbitrary historical/sociological interpretation of history and present it in terms not autonomous with respect to the past. This study describes a construction of a non-substantive model of long-term process of development of a military revolution in Europe. Its aim is not to rely on the usual ontological presupposition of a substantive nature, causality, and totality of history. As its starting point, the study uses the actor-network theory of Bruno Latour, with whose help it constructs a historical continuity and causality of the abovementioned process based on so-called analysis of historical agents/actors.
