 Social structure,
in sociology, the distinctive,
stable arrangement of
institutions
whereby human beings in
a society interact and live
together. Social structure is
often treated together with
the concept of social
change, which deals with
the forces that change the
social structure and the
organization of society.
 One example of social structure is
the idea of "social stratification",
which refers to the idea that most
societies are separated into
different strata (levels), guided (if
only partially) by the
underlying structures in
the social system. ... Family, religion,
law, economy, and class are
all social structures.

Structural-functionalism
 Functionalism,also called structural-functional
theory, sees society as a structure with interrelated
parts designed to meet the biological and social
needs of the individuals in that society.
Functionalism grew out of the writings of English
philosopher and biologist, Hebert Spencer (1820–
1903), who saw similarities between society and the
human body; he argued that just as the various
organs of the body work together to keep the
body functioning, the various parts of society work
together to keep society functioning (Spencer
1898).
1. Defined structural functionalism

function in the society?
