ucture to its formation and progress as a function of social units, customs, interactions, and general stimuli within the society built around to affect that behavior (Farlex).
Besides proposition of acknowledged theories which most hard sciences carry out through an inductive process, social science has made it a point to be founded on a deductive methodology, taking the matter of fact that by real experience, social relation would not set itself alone in an individual, as distinctly impacting oneself apart from external communication or influence by others. It has then become a requirement in its meaning that a social relationship should validate its existence in a situation where there flows substantial interaction between two individuals at least.
Social institution, on the other hand, establishes and enhances such interaction by getting individuals in a framework that makes them meet, know each other increasingly, and eventually share a common ground from which to form a culture. As normally encountered on a longer term, this culture or way of life becomes one’s source of paradigm and core values to be used in response to how its continuous reality shapes the human being who is self-aware of the necessity to either maintain or modify his social attributes whenever it suits him.
The mutual aims and interests of humans who socialize with each other on a regular basis among different institutions under diverse culture, further fit into a sum known as society. It is perhaps in deeply ascertaining what the society ought to be made of in view of idealism that had made the typical concept of classifying individuals into ranks based on the results of their talents effected through constant socialization which later establishes for them an economy and status they can be identified with. Economic discussions are however rather more specialized to go with social factors and must be treated in separate detail beside the points brought up in sociological studies.
