Abstract

Human life takes place in a social context. Billson (1994:118) noted the inseparability of society and self:

The cross-fire debate over the relationship between the individual (with all his or her unique qualities) and society (with its capacity for blueprinting that uniqueness) confuses our attempts to understand human behavior. Some disciplines ... claim to focus on the individual, relegating cultural and societal forces to a nebulous “background.”
