Social Systems
  • Media viewed as social systems that operate within a specific external system—American society
  • Pattern of action exhibited by individuals or sub-groups who relate themselves to one another within systems
  • Social system--abstraction
social systems1
Social Systems
  • A complex state of stable, repetitive, and patterned action that is in part a manifestation of the culture shared by the actors, and in part a manifestation of the psychological orientations of the actors (which are in turn derived from that culture).
  • The cultural system, the social system, and the personality systems (of the actors), therefore, are different kinds of abstractions made from the same basic data, namely, the overt and symbolic behaviors of individual human beings.
functional analysis
Functional Analysis
  • Focuses on some specific phenomenon occurring within a social system. It then attempts to show how this phenomenon has consequences that contribute to the stability and permanence of the system as a whole.
