  Leslie White - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
White spoke of culture as a general human phenomenon, and claimed not to speak of ‘cultures' in the plural.
White differentiated between three components of culture: technological, sociological and ideological, and argued that it was the technological component which plays a primary role or is the primary determining factor responsible for the cultural evolution.
White's law states that the measure by which to judge the relative degree of evolvedness of culture was the amount of energy it could capture (energy consumption).

White was born at the beginning of the 20th century, and the first chapter recounts his lonely and unsettled childhood on a farm in Kansas living with an emotionally distant father (the mother left when White was five years old).

 Leslie A. White
Leslie Alvin White was born 19 January 1900 in Salida, Colorado.
Although White was present at Columbia during the same period as Franz Boas, he never took a single course with the now legendary ethnologist.
In White's view culture was evolving, according to rules inherent only to itself, in the direction of greater complexity and the ability to harness and direct greater and greater amounts of energy.

 Leslie White
White’s theories represent the revenge both of evolutionary views and of a general (i.e., not particular) science of culture (rather than a set of particular studies of cultures).
White agreed with Kroeber’s criticisms of the “great man” (e.g., Ikhnaton, Darwin, Newton, Beethoven, Edison) view of inventions and discoveries – they are inevitable products of culture, and the particular individuals do not pluck them out of thin air, they are just the vehicles of their coming to light.
White argues that the technological determines the other 2 or three categories.

 White's law - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
White's law, named after Leslie White and published in 1949, states that, other factors remaining constant, "culture evolves as the amount of energy harnessed per capita per year is increased, or as the efficiency of the instrumental means of putting the energy to work is increased"[1].
White's materialist approach is evident in the following quote: "man as an animal species, and consequently culture as a whole, is dependent upon the material, mechnical means of adjustment to the natural environment" [2].
For White “the primary function of culture” and the one that determines its level of advancement is its ability to “harness and control energy.” White's law states that the measure by which to judge the relative degree of evolvedness of culture was the amount of energy it could capture (energy consumption).

 Leslie White
Leslie White was an American anthropologist best known for his ideas about cultural evolution (White, Leslie A).
White coined this term because he believed that cultures should not be explained in terms of psychology, biology, or physiology, but rather in its own category.
When speaking of technological advancements pertaining to how it affects culture White states, "culture advances as the amount of energy harnessed per captia per year increases, or as the efficiency or economy of the means of controlling energy is increased, or both" (Anthropological Theories).

Leslie White developed the theory of cultural evolution, which was ignored by most anthropologists at that time.
White’s attempts to restore the evolutionary topic started in the 1920s, when he was impressed by Morgan’s model and logic of his evolutionary theory.
White decided that whatever problems the theory had, it could not be dismissed.

White has one coherent paradigm, Steward had one paradigm with 2 pieces to it.
White very struck with Morgan's ideas of cultural evolution, and how they had been so completely rejected.
I would say, these ideas have not been used the way White used them, his particular models aren't followed too much, culturology (this will be clear in comparison to Steward) but he did make it possible to talk about these issues, that's a major contribution.
