What is Society

leave a comment »

A. What is Society?
Society is community, a habitat, an ecosystem. A place where living things interact.

In reality, society is complex and difficult to be understood

B. What is component of society
If we see a society, we can described what they do. For example a three person music band (lets called Green Day), might consist of drummer, guitarist and basist, all of them is a singer. In the society case, we can described the component of society using several themes a below.

  • Economy Themes. E.g Agriculture 20%, Industry 50%, Services 30%
  • Energy Themes. e.g Power Generation 50%, Transport 30%, Domestic 20%
  • Social Themes. E.g Male/Female, Children/Adult/Old, Educated/Non Educated, Single/Married
  • Political Themes. E.g Bourjois/Proletar, Rich/Poor, King/Peasant, Develop/Developing

In reality, society is complex and difficult to be understood

C. What is trend of society
Trend is description of society over a period of time. In the Green Day case, a song might be sung by lead singer first and in the second phase by backup singer. In the society case, it can be described as follows:
– Static (fixed) Trend. E.g number of population from 1800-2000 increased, constant
– Chaotic (changing) Trend. E.g number of population increase then decrease -there could be an explanation e.g war or change in culture. Most of society is chaotic trend.

In reality, society is complex and difficult to be understood

D. How society interacted?
E. How to society achieve its objective?
Unlike natural science, social science can not explain the interaction between each component. And also can not explain the trend of society. The social science limitation is in its philosophical concept that “people are likely to continue utilizing an apparently unworkable paradigm until a better paradigm is commonly accepted” Thomas Kuhn (Wiki Social Change)
