Theories are sets of inter-related concepts and ideas that have been scientifically tested and combined to clarify, and expand our. This is a very useful collection / reconfiguration of Norman Long's writings on development, updating his earlier thought in relation to more recent literature and social theory, and offering both a useful antidote to overly Foucauldian writings on the topic, and insights on the relation between structure and agency, and processes of state formation, that go well beyond the study of by: Let’s finish our analysis of culture by reviewing them in the context of three theoretical perspectives: functionalism, conflict theory, and symbolic interactionism. Functionalists view society as a system in which all parts work—or function—together to create society as a whole.
In sociology, a few theories provide broad perspectives that help explain many different aspects of social life, and these are called paradigms. Paradigms are philosophical and theoretical frameworks used within a discipline to formulate theories, generalizations, and the experiments performed in support of them. Three paradigms have come to dominate sociological thinking, because they provide useful explanations: structural functionalism, conflict theory. Sociologists today employ three primary theoretical perspectives: the symbolic interactionist perspective, the functionalist perspective, and the conflict perspective. These perspectives offer sociologists theoretical paradigms for explaining how society influences people, and vice versa.

The field of sociology itself i s a theoretical perspective based on the assumption that social systems such as society and the family actually exist, that culture, social structure, statuses, and roles are real. A theoretical perspective is important for research because it serves to organize our thoughts and ideas and make them clear to others. In sociology, a theory is a way to explain different aspects of social interactions and to create a testable proposition, called a hypothesis, about society (Allan ). For example, although suicide is generally considered an individual phenomenon, Émile Durkheim was interested in studying the social factors that affect it.
