The term for sociology

Social action is defined as those acts that a person or a group performs in favor of a cause that is considered just and that positively affects other individuals who are, in some aspect, in unequal conditions.

As defined by the philosopher Max Weber, it can be called this way all human behavior whose motor is subjectively significant and which has the effect of valuable changes in the environment in which it operates. It is understood that in a social action it establishes a certain relationship between two parts that will determine the conduct that each one adopts.

It is necessary to clarify that not all relationships between human beings have a social character. When a person performs an action, it is motivated by her beliefs and ideologies; Only in the case that their acts positively affect the environment in which they are developed, can we speak of social action.

Weber himself also defined sociology as the scientific field where attempts were made to understand and interpret social actions; This would be definitive to get an idea of ​​where the course of that society is heading, what the consequences of the actions will be and how they will change the life of the group.

It also differentiates between three types of social action:

* traditional, conduct that is exclusively motivated by ideological principles, norms and customs. It is a response to a stimulus that is carried out almost automatically, without reason being used to make decisions;
* affective, an irrational action that is motivated by an emotion, whether it is love, hate, or another feeling;
* rational according to values, motivated by a rational end. However, this action is subject to the norms or customs of the subject who performs it.

It is important to point out that not all currents were inclined towards this way of understanding sociology and social actions, imposed by Weber. The functionalism, for example, ensured that always a social action was limited by the rules and values of the group.
