What is a Society

Updated on October 18, 2015

The word Society is usually used to designate the members of specific in group Society exists only where social beings behave towards one another in ways determined by their recognition of one another. Any relations so determined we may broadly name Social.

It is now clear that the Society is not limited to human beings from the above said. These are animal societies where in we find the individuals of it behave towards to each other in determined way. Ex: The ant Society and the bee Society.

Aristotle said that man was a Social animal. Man is dependent on society for protection, comfort, nurture, education, equipment, opportunity and the multi-trade of definite services which society provides. He is dependent on society for the content of his thoughts his dreams, his aspirations, even many of his maladies of mind and body.

No man is free of the need of society. Human society is a dynamic ever-changing and ever-going entity. Members in the Society born and die, but society remain permanent.

Definition of Society

Sociology is a system of usages and procedures, authority and mutual aid of many groupings and divisions of controls of human behaviour and of liberties. -Maclverand page

Society is the union itself, the organisation, the sum of formal relations in which associating individuals are bound together. -Giddings

A society may be designed as a group of people who have lived together long enough to become organized andd to consider themselves and be considered as a unit more or less distinct from other human units. -John F. Cuber

A society is a collection of individuals united by certain relations or mode of behavior which make them off from other who do not enter into these relations or who differ from them in behavior. -Ginsberg

Society may be difined as the total complex of human relationships in so far as they grow out of action in terms of mean-end relationship, intrinsic or symbolic. -Parsons

Society is a complex of forms or processes, each of which is living and gorwing by interaction with the others the whole being so united that what takes place in one part affects all the rest. -Cooly

Thus, human society is defined as a collection of people with a common identification, who are sufficiently organised to carryout the conditions necessary to living together harmoniously. Society is an every changing complex system. It is the web of Social relationships. Society is abstract.

      I agree with Aristotle, that human society is a dynamic ,ever changing and ever going entity.Members of the society born and die,but society remains.which is true.Because a society is a group of human being, with human sufficiency, which is capable of existing longer than the life of an individual.ARISTOTLE IS A GREAT PHILOSOPHER AM PROUD OF HIM!!!
