Cultural, intellectual, philosophical and technological revolutions

The term revolution has been used to denote great changes outside the political sphere. They are usually recognized as having transformed in society, culture, philosophy and technology much more than political systems. Some can be global, while others are limited to single countries. Such revolutions include, in alphabetical order:
*Agricultural Revolutions, which include:
**Neolithic Revolution (perhaps 13000 years ago), which formed the basis for human civilization to develop. It is commonly referred to as the 'First Agricultural Revolution'.
**Green Revolution (1945- ), the use of industrial fertilizers and new crops greatly increased the world's agricultural output. It is commonly referred to as the 'Second Agricultural Revolution'.
**British Agricultural Revolution (18th century), which spurred urbanisation and consequently helped launch the Industrial Revolution.
**Scottish Agricultural Revolution (18th st century), which led to the Lowland Clearances.
* Cultural Revolution - a struggle for power within the Communist Party of China, which grew to include large sections of Chinese society and eventually brought the People's Republic of China to the brink of civil war, and which lasted from 1966 to 1976
* Digital Revolution - the sweeping changes brought about by computing and communication technology from the later half of the 20th Century till today
* Industrial Revolution - the major shift of technological, socioeconomic and cultural conditions in the late 18th and early 19th centuries that began in Britain and spread throughout the world
** Second Industrial Revolution (1871–1914)
* Price revolution - a series of economic events from the second half of the 15th century to the first half of the 17th, the price revolution refers most specifically to the high rate of inflation that characterized the period across Western Europe
* Quiet Revolution - a period of rapid change in Quebec, Canada, in the 1960s. This leads to the separatist movement for Quebec sovereignty and two referendums.
* Scientific revolution - a fundamental transformation in scientific ideas around the 16th century
* The Counterculture Revolution (or The Hippie Revolution). A Social and Cultural Revolution that swept through the United States and much of the western world in the 1960s and 1970's. In America, it was a revolt against the conservative social norms of the 1950s, the political conservatism and social repression of the Cold War period, and the US government's extensive military intervention in Vietnam. The growing use of psychedelic drugs are also included.
** Sexual revolution - a change in sexual morality and sexual behavior throughout the Western world, mainly during the 1960s and 1970s.
* Upper Paleolithic Revolution - The emergence of "high culture", new technologies and regionally distinct cultures.
