The main theme of this work corresponds to the relationship between entropy and chaos theory, to explain through logical argumentation that the reality of society is a dissipative structure that manifests itself through chaotic components. This project arises from the concept of entropy (second law of thermodynamics) as a quantity that determines the irreversibility of a process and the concept that explains the cause of natural transformation, tending to a permanent increase in the universe, which underlies the degradation of systems and convergence towards chaos. As a hermeneutical instrument to interpret social interaction, this paper uses mathematical logic framed in a philosophical context through hermeneutics as an argumentation tool; seeking to describe the logical construction of social interaction as a dissipative entity with the constant entropic increase of nature.
