Individual and Society
The relationship between individuals and society has been a topic of concern under
Social philosophy. To help in controlling the way in which people relate to each other, there has
been a rise of rules and regulations by relevant bodies. These relevant rules and regulations are
aimed at controlling some acts which are against humanity; the rules, in this case, are the society.
This means that individuals are the ones who form a society, making the society to be closely
dependent on the individuals’ existence. It is through the society that people live while keeping
their cultural practices and values which are termed as good.
The society is present when two animals relate to each other, it does not have to be
human beings, animals such as aunts and bees form a society in the way they act to each other. A
society sometimes may be explained as political, cultural, religious or scientific depending on the
composition in terms of individuals. This means that society can also be a collection of people
intended at achieving a specific mission; this makes most of them to develop similar behavior
when compared to each other. This issue has been discussed and used by philosophers Marx
Karl, Max Weber, and Emile Durkheim, to explain the relationship and make critics on some
sections of social philosophy.
According to Karl Max, a society is a set of principles and policies which may be aimed
at political, social or economic purposes. They involve people who belong to different classes
such as those who control production and those who struggle to produce through their labor. In
this kind of society, Marx relates the working individuals to their bosses talking about freedom
and development as essential in making up a society. Interests of a society are also essential in
making some groups develop some behavior, such interests are most economical. It is through
this that he connected materialism with the societies and groups.
