Abstract

Structural functionalism sees society or other social objects as a system, as a structurally dissected integrity, in which each system unit performs a specific function, creating conditions for the normal functioning of all subsystems and of the system as a whole. The main problem that sociologists try to explain on the basis of functionalism - How does the social order under conditions of free activity of individuals, pursuing their own interests? How does a social mechanism operate that leads to mutual coordination of their actions in the public interest? As we see, sociologists of this direction see for themselves the basic scientific problem the same as, beginning from Adam Smith, economists see it in relation to the decentralized economic system. Economic theory can discover for itself many valuable ideas in very interesting scientific developments of sociologists.
