Social

The word "Social" derives from the Latin wordsocii ("allies"). It is particularly derived from the Italian Sociistates, historical allies of the Roman Republic (although they rebelled againstRome in the Social War of 91-88 BC).

The term ‘social’ is not strictly defined. There are,however, a number of descriptions of the application of the term. Attitudes,orientations, or behaviors which take the interests, intentions, or needs ofother people into account are commonly recognized as social.

The most common use of the term social is in politics. Inleft-wing circles it is often used to imply a liberal characteristic, while inright-wing circles it is generally used to imply a conservative characteristic.

It is also used to round an already established term e.g. socialrealism, social justice, social constructivism, social psychology, socialanarchism and social capital. Other uses of the term relate to the society orits structure.

There are different theories about social occurrences. Oneof them is provided by Karl Marx, stating that human beings are intrinsically,necessarily and by definition social beings who, beyond being "gregariouscreatures", cannot survive and meet their needs other than through socialco-operation and association.

Contemporary use of the term is referred to the redistributivepolicies of the government which aim to apply resources in the public interest.
